Chloe's First BYU Game

On Saturday, we took Chloe to her very first BYU football game. When we left the house there wasn't even a hint of blue skies and in fact, one couldn't even see the mountains for the thick, gray clouds...so we obviously took cold weather clothes for Chloe. Well, about five minutes into the game the clouds gave way to clear skies and 80 degree temperatures. It was beautiful, but with no sunscreen and no hat for Chloe, improvising shade to protect her from getting sunburned was needless to say an interesting adventure throughout the afternoon.

The Cougars offense didn't play their best football in the first quarter, and this made Chloe quite grumpy. However, things started clicking for the Cougs in the second quarter and throughout the second half and this put Chloe in a much better mood...it was either that or the bottle and nap she got.

Overall, she did great despite a rough and fussy start and it ended up being a very fun family outing. We hesitated to buy season tickets this year, but I think Chloe did good enough at the game that next season we'll consider it. By the way, for those of you living under a rock, the Cougars completed their second straight shutout by smearing Wyoming 44-0 in front of a sell-out crowd.
