Thanks to D.A.D.S (Dads Appreciating Down Syndrome)...we were invited to a pre-game tailgate party at Joe Bananas and were given free tickets to last night's Innaugural UFL game...the Omaha Nighthawks scored a TD in the final 6 seconds of the game to beat the Hartford Colonials by 1 point in front of a sellout crowd of 24,000 fans! What a game! And a WHAT A GORGEOUS NIGHT! The weather could not have been any more perfect.
I still can't get over how surreal it was to see a football game being played in this gem of a BASEBALL stadium. Plus, what made it even more confusing was the fact that my "not-so-sports-inclined" 3 year old kept calling it a "BASKETball" game. haha But it was awesome and turned out to be a great venue.
heading to the game...this will probably be the last time we step foot in the beloved "Diamond on the Hill" Rosenblatt Stadium.
|McKenzie thought it was pretty cool to see all the big fast cars driving below :-)|
|"WHY do they keep HONKING!"|
|my family! Macy's first and last time at Rosenblatt|
|Macy yelling at Mckenzie to TURN AROUND and look at the camera|
|okay Macy, practice what you preach...look at the camera haha! :-) oh well, it's as good as it's gonna get! LOL|
|Cory making Macy smile|
|Jagger with his dad (Dale). It was fun that our whole ODSPN group (of about 100) were all able to sit in the same section!|
|Macy was easy peasy and actually slept through most of the game...which was fine with me...a sleeping baby is a lot easier than a hungry, tired, restless baby :-)|
|shortly after the show, both girls konked out for about 10 minutes or so.|
|My friend Jeff, his dad and younger brother Cory (Cory is 17).|
|Steph takin' a pic of Jagger...yes, I am that person who takes pictures of people taking pictures|
|McKenzie scanned the crowd and found her best friend (Cousin Anna) and all was right in the world!|
|Sprite, feel free...I give you permission to use this image in your next print ad. If you don't see a rise in soda sales after putting this face on your next campaign, then I don't know what will!|
|oh Jagger, you are just too sweet, I can't get enough of you :-)|
|As you can see by Macy's adorable expression she had a blast!|
|The whole, long walk back to the car was just like this...Macy staring up and giggling at me. I could not help but want to just watch her...it's a surprise I did not fall on my face as I was wearing heels and not paying attention to the uneven ground below in the dark streets on South East Omaha...|
I leave you with this cute video of "Jagger the Rockstar" dancing to Nelly!
