The West Marshall football team made it to the semi-final round and that meant a trip to the UNI dome. We were matched-up against Spirit Lake on Monday afternoon. That meant a day with no school. Aaron has been my "ace reporter" :) for WM football, so he covered the game from the sidelines. It was nice to sit in the stands and just enjoy the game. Some photos I snapped at the dome, aka marshmallow as Brody calls it.
The blue icees! The kids shared one and Jenna kept making me take photos of her blue tongue.
The kids did reallly well for awhile, but I was sure to bring other entertainment. Jenna drew a picture of the football game and Brody played the DS.
The action on the field. I don't have very fond memories of Spirit Lake when we played against them in high school. That seemed to carry over when we played them Monday. I will say, they were one hard-hitting team! Wow. I was cringing sometimes at how hard our boys were getting hit. It made me have that moment where I wished my boys would run cross country or just play fall baseball. :)
Our friend, Mary and her sister, Amanda and little Miss Cailyn sat by us. Cailyn was super cute in her black and gold!
When all was said and done, West Marshall's season came to a close with a 35-14 loss. They guys did great though! 12-1. Pretty impressive. I snapped one more photo of the kids so we could remember our first trip to the dome and state football.
If you happen to be wondering where the twins are, Grandma and Grandpa Burdorf were kind enough to come down and hang out with them for the day. What a huge help that was! :)
