Daddy's Day Out

Sunday I surprised this special guy:

with Club seats to watch this Pro team:

It was our first time in Raymond James Stadium to watch the Buccaneers and it was pretty cool. Their record of 0-5 made good seats very available, and we enjoyed the high life at the Club level. Leather couches & armchairs, big screen TVs, food that ranged from hot dogs & beer to sushi & gourmet coffee awaited us... plus a nice view of the field.

Pro football is amazing- it's a super suped-up version of what I'm used to watching on college fields. The players are faster, the stadium bigger, the cheerleaders are skimpier... the fans don't always cheer as loud as I'm used to, but they are certainly committed to their team if they pay face value for those tickets! (I only share this pic of the cheerleaders b/c they were actually a little "covered" for the first half with pink shirts to support Breast Cancer Awareness- those came off for the 2nd half!)

We enjoyed watching Cadillac Williams do his thing on the field, but ultimately the Bucs extended their record to 0-6, losing to the Carolina Panthers in the last minutes. We did get to hear the canons blast a few times from the pirate ship in the end zone for touchdowns...


It's a true-to-scale ship, complete with talking parrot and giant skull...



After the game we ran by the house to clean up and change, and continued our night out with dinner and a movie. It was nice to spend the day together, experiencing some of the fun our new city has to offer, and treat my hardworking husband!

Wow - a whole blog with not one kid picture!! Must be a record! Shows granddad and I must be doing our job to help with the transition! We had afun day with the babies and went TV shopping with Uncle Wes. Georgia got to open about 10 new refrigerators and we checked out the new sytle of appliances while Linc, Grandad and Wes bargained for TV's. Then U. Wes came to dinner and was amazed by noisey baby Linc. The babies had a blast in Grammie's tub and were fast asleep before you 2 made it home! Great fun for all. Hugs!! Grammie

I am so glad that the two of you were able to explore your new home town! You guys are still AU fans, though, right? I think that orange is your color - not red.
