Football Fun

Susannah and I took 2 days off of school for a really fun time! We went with several people from our ward to Fort Worth for the BYU v. TCU football game on Thursday night.
Bishop Chappell rented a 15 passenger van and we headed on over. It was a great trip. One of the most fun things in the van was playing a bubble wrap game on Mauren's i-Pod. It was hilarious.

Another one of my favorite things was making the Hulme twins sing to us. This song is one of my favorites. It is from the opera "Lak Me." I wish I could have recorded the whole song.
We went to a tailgate party on TCU campus for BYU fans. It was put on by the BYU Alumni Association. The best thing about the tailgate party was TY DETMER WAS THERE! FAMOUS! We got a group picture with him.
I've been a fan of his ever since he played for BYU! It was awesome to see him and he was so nice!
They had a huge BBQ and gave us tons of food.
We got our picture with Cosmo - not quite as exciting as TY.
When the different guest speakers were talking, we noticed this lady that looked a TON like Sarah Palin.
We ran into some old friends as well. Here's Brady. We also saw Matt and Carrie Hong and their cute little boy.

Here's a close-up of Ty! We, okay . . . I, was a little mesmerized.

I took this little video of part of his speech. He has a fun Texas accent.
My Uncle Darrell and Aunt Maylene were just a section over from us at the game. Sadly, BYU played like trash. TCU kicked our hineys. The final score was 32-7. YUCK!

The best part of the game was the Haka the players did before the kick-off even happened.
We also enjoyed the cool weather and this pretty sunset.
We had to get another sister shot in front of the field.
We stayed the night there in Ft. Worth. On the way home the next day, we stopped in Madisonville, TX at Texas Burger where the Chappells treated us all to lunch AND ice cream. It was great! They're so wonderful. It was a fantastic trip minus the terrible game which will now destroy BYU's rank and winning streak. Bummer!

Hey! Thanks for writing! My husband was at that game too! How funny.

And yes, there is a way to make the layouts fit full screen.

It looks like it worked! You figured it out?

Love the new look for your blog. Sounds like a fun trip. It's awesome you get to do such fun things all the time with your sister. Since both of my sisters live out of state I'm jealous! I do have a lot of cool sisters-in-law though. I get excited about appliances, too!

Those girls sang one of my favotite songs. I would love to go on a car trip with them! Sorry those Cougars didn't give you a better score. Kudos to you for driving all that way though!

You guys always do the funnest stuff!

I'll buy you lunch AND icecream if you come to visit us here in Utah. We could try to squeeze in a BYU game when we'll actually win. It was a bummer watching it on TV.

That is so cool you have a picture of Ty Detmer!! I met him while I was in high school. He and his brother, I think his name is Coy, came to Round Valley for a football camp! What a fun trip for you guys!!

sweet new wallpaper. Isn't Ty Detmer just a dream come true? He's so sweet . . . it's too bad he had to play for BYU.
