Go Cougars!

BYU played UNM here in Albuquerque, so we spent Saturday morning at the BYU Tailgate Party. Our kids had so much fun. My friend was on the committee that organized the event, so she roped us into manning the bean bag toss (I know--SO difficult). The kids loved playing all the games and eating the yummy breakfast burritos.

Donuts on a string--always a classic.

Face painting. I think Katie asked us at least 30 times if her Y was still on. I wanted them to get their hair sprayed blue and white, but neither of them were daring enough.

It was quite chilly, but they kept warm by spending about an hour inside the bouncy castle. For those of you unfamiliar with Albuquerque, the bouncy castle is a city institution. Every major event has at least two bouncy castles, and they're usually quite deluxe. During the summer, every park is filled with bouncy castles that people have rented out for children's birthday parties.

Averi also enjoyed the bouncy castle. We just bounced her up and down on the ramp going in, and she was thrilled. She screamed any time we moved her away from the area.

Katie and Paul loved seeing Cosmo. Paul was hesitant to get his picture taken with him, though, and when he finally did, my camera wouldn't take. Turned out that my memory card was full (we take LOTS of pictures) and by the time I got a picture deleted Cosmo had to go. So sad.

And Averi's super cute.

Aaron and I got a babysitter for the kids, so we were able to go to the game together. It was kind of frightening there at the end, but we pulled through and won. It would have been REALLY embarrassing for BYU to have been the Lobos' only win of the season.

That's so awesome that you guys got to see the game...even though it was kind of a dumb game for BYU. But I'm kind of glad that the Lobos played really well. And, of course, your kids are the cutest!

So much fun! How cool that you guys manned a booth! And the picture with Cosmo is awesome! (my hubby wanted to name Kobe Cosmo..ugh).
