that I found.

Hopes were high as we prepared the week before to meet our rivals, the Utes. We wore blue all week, egged Utah cars and ate blue brownies. Okay, we didn’t really do any of that, but we were excited for the game against Utah. We got to the game 40 minutes early and watched as the teams prepared. I went down to the field to sign Matt up to shoot the cannon. We got the second score. I was excited. At last, my love would get to shoot the cannon on what was sure to be a good game.
We found our seats on the other side of the field and enjoyed watching and talking before the game. While I was signing Matt up to shoot the cannon there was a giant line of ROTC men holding the flag. The line went all the way up the stairs in the back. It was a cool sight. Because it was so long, if we wanted to go through that area we went under the flag. Hopefully that was not disrespectful!
They then did this big thing about our Independence! And we all sang the national anthem. I thought there was supposed to be a flyover, especially since my students and I saw them preparing the day before, but alas, I guess it was a no go.
I thought it was cool how they refolded it.
Since it was the Deseret First Duel, Deseret Bank sponsored Pom-Poms for a majority of the student sections. It was kind of neat to see them flicking at the same times to the songs. Matt, of course, LOVED his. I couldn’t get him to put it down ALL night!
And, of course, since the theme this year is to “Rise Up,” there were a million banners saying jut that.
And I was pleasantly surprised to have fireworks! They were really cool looking!
It was definitely a great start to the game. Probably the best I had been to. We, the fans, were pumped and ready for the game…
That Started Bad.
And Ended worse.
So instead of talking about the game, I will talk about the highlights.
Number One: The beautiful sunset behind Lavell Edwards Stadium.
Number Two: We did score. And Matt got to shoot the cannon.
Unfortunately, I was too busy jumping up and down in the air to get a picture of Matt pulling the rope. sorry…
Number Three: The BYU Marching band. By far, the coolest part of the night. They made a man on the field and had him walk. It was SO cool. I forgot to take a picture and couldn’t find one on the internet.
Number Four: Good company.
This must be after 5 fumbles.
Some friends from the pool.
Anyway, the game was four hours long…and it felt longer, unfortunately. It was only embarrassing when we were losing by 3 touchdowns. After, that I was just numb to it all. But, being the awesome fans that we are, we stayed the entire game.
Pretty much sum s it u.
7 fumbles. Whoops. Better luck next year I guess.

Jon trying to get everyone together and smiling…
The best one…I can’t tell if my eyes are open though.
I don’t know what my husband is thinking.
hmm. Not very successful.
Excuse the giant bare midriff in the middle.
If this picture described our personalities…what would it say?

Her present pile…hey it was bigger than it looked.
One of my favorite wedding presents. Last one from Costco.
Posing with Matt’s new shoes he was showing off (by leaving them in the front room and saying “Oh whoops, did I leave my brand new shoes out. My Sauconys? My bad—oh did you want to look at them?”)
Eating some food.
We love presents…and we make good faces too.
Matt really wanted to get in one.
