Okay so the story behind the football game...our landlady works for Deseret First Credit Union (who is sponsoring the Duel between the Utes and BYU) so she gets pretty nice tickets (on the home team side on the 20 yard line 10 rows up) to the games and to the VIP catered tent. She was in a car accident a few weeks ago and had to have surgery on her knee so she is laid up in bed for the next little while and had some tickets to give away. We've been helping out with her kids while she had the surgery and while she's been in bed so she offered them to us. When we went we didn't think that we would be able to go down on the field without her there but they came and asked if we wanted to go and of course we said yes. Not long after we got down on the field though, they realized that they made a mistake and children under 16 are not supposed to be on the field so we didn't get to stay long but it was still a blast!
The picture with Zaylee's head in my hands was just funny. She was so exhausted but couldn't fall asleep because of all the noise so I had her on my lap and she was just playing with my hands and then all of a sudden just dropped her head into my hands and sat there. It was so funny. She would lift her head up at any big noise and then she would put it back down. I think the poor girl was just over stimulated and over tired.
One more funny thing...about 3/4 of the way through the game the band started playing "Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree." Okay, I've never been to a BYU game before so I haven't seen it but it was hilarious. The crowd starting singing it and started doing the actions while the band was pretending to be popcorn popping. Only at a BYU football game....
The game was a ton of fun and we were so excited that we had the opportunity to go.
