Red White Game

Sara Kate had a big day on Saturday.  She attended her first Razorback football game!!  She's been to a basketball game and we've been to the 'meet the team' events, but this was her first time to go watch the football team play.  I figure it will be a couple more years before she's ready to go to a REAL game, so for now, this is perfect!  The University of Arkansas held it's annual Red White game to end spring practice, along with Razorfest, which is a bunch of bouce houses, games, etc. for kids.  We got there late because of gymnastics and having to run a couple of errands, but we walked around Razorfest for a few minutes but the lines for what was left were too long.  So we headed into the stadium.  We sat on the east side, lower deck (usually we sit on the west side, upper deck), about the 10th row or so.  It was pretty cool to be so close!
Sara Kate loved watching the cheerleaders and was obsessed with making sure she knew where the mascots were...making sure they did NOT come into the stands!  And thankfully while we were there they didn't!!

Once the game started, it was kind of hard to keep track of which quarterback was which, which kicker was which...since they are no contact players.  But it was still fun watching them play, even though it was just a team scrimmage.
All pictures were taken by Chris!!
 Sara Kate did really well watching everything and taking it all in.  She noticed little things, like the stadium lights were on.  She called the Hogs...even though it was at a time when we were NOT calling the Hogs.  She read off the letters as we did the H-O-G-S spell out.  She even busted out singing 'Jesus Loves the Little Children' at one point.  Haha! 
We left at half time...she was ready to go by then, asking for a snack and ready to go to the car.  As a treat we bought some cotton candy, her first time to try it.  She loved it and told my mom and dad all about it later that night.  I hope she had fun.  I'm glad we live in a college town and she gets to experience stuff like this.  

Before we left campus, we stopped by some very special letters and I got a picture of my little legacy!  LOVE! :-)
Oh, and here's my mommy fail of the day...I forgot sunscreen and Sara Kate ended up with pink little shoulders...not as bad as mommy's red shoulders and back...ouch!

One more thing.  Please pray for our state!  We had devastating tornadoes in central Arkansas last night, wiping out towns that were affected by other strong tornadoes just a couple of years ago.  Pray for all those that were affected.  Also pray for Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia, which are in the path of the storms and the areas of those states that have already been affected.
