Making Memories

OU (54) vs. Utah State (3)

Jason and I took the kids to their first OU football game versus Utah State (we spanked em'). Elle lasted one quarter in the heat before I had to take her downstairs to watch on the TVs in the concession area. She and I retired to the tailgate around half time.

Jason and Dakota had 3rd row seats in the player recruit scored via BTW connections! They had private access in the Switzer Center and entry via the player guest gates. They sat three seats away from Courtney Paris and right next to all the OU women's volleyball and basketball teams. As Jason put it, they had plain view of the Aggies sideline. Dakota lasted into the third quarter before he was ready for more food and drink. So we all met back at the Little's tailgate party which is OU football first class.

The Littles do the tailgate up right. They're equipped with a large TV, Dish network satellite, four tents, a futon, an American flag, and Oklahoma flag, a gas powered cooler on wheels and plenty of food and drink. The kids enjoyed playing in the horse trough with their new friend Olivia

and we enjoyed chatting with the Littles, the Harders (including Scott who it was great to see) and plenty of their friends. There are so many details that go into planning this event and we're ever grateful for them sharing in their hospitality with us. We stuck around long enough to help with loading the trailer (it was the least we could do) and even that had it's own entertainment value.

Everyone had a good time and I think the kids had a memorable Sooner experience.
