Our First Football Game

On Saturday, we were able to attend the last ECU home game of the season at our very own Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium. They played against the UCF Knights (my husband, however, thinks the mascot resembled more of a Darth Vader). What made this game extra special was that it was the first game for both Bridget and myself (lived here 7 years and had never been). But earlier in the week when my husband found out that student guest tickets were only $5, he snatched them up. That way if the weather was too cold/windy/rainy, our pockets wouldn't hurt by deciding not to go.

I'll first start with a family picture, even though it was technically the last picture taken that night:

Bridget did not want me in the picture. When she is with her daddy, nobody else is allowed to touch or get near him. He belongs to her. Lucky for me, the picture got snapped before she attempted to push me away again.

See how much she enjoys being in daddy's arms?:

Here's the ECU marching band coming out before the game got started:

Bridget is a lover of music, and she actually has good rhythm for a 2 year old. She didn't get it from me. But here she is, clapping right along with any music that was played. She kept looking at Daddy and I to see if we were also clapping, and if we weren't, she'd grab our hands and make them clap. She was full of Pirate spirit.

She did so well, considering the game started at 7 p.m. and didn't get over until after 10:30! She caught on to a lot of the hand gestures the other students made (with the exception of 'the bird', which was made a few times at the other team but I tried not to let her see). After much effort, she was able to make her very own pirate hook, and sounded so cute when she said "aarrgghhh!" (with coaching from daddy, of course).

One last picture of the field right before the game was to get started:

ECU won, 38-31.
