BYU vs Airforce

So once again, I am behind.
As a family, we went to the BYU vs Air Force game at the Air Force Academy. It was Brad, Tyler and Katie's 1st time at a college football game. We got there late for 2 reasons. 1st, I thought the game started later and 2nd, Tyler had a soccer game....but anyway, we got decked out in our BYU shirts and off to the game we went. We sat in the middle of Air Force fans but they were really nice.
We had a great time cheering for the cougars and Tyler absolutely LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it! I think he is a true blue thru and thru BYU fan.
Unfortunately for BYU fans, we didn't fare so well. BYU lost 14-35.

The game was played on September 11th. During half time the cadets and marching band brought out this huge USA flag. Tyler and Katie both kept saying, that is the American flag. I am glad our kids recognize our national symbol.
We sang "God Bless America" during half time. It was very touching to remember those men and women who are serving in our armed forces to protect our lives and our freedom. Also, to remember the tragedy that happened 9 years ago. I remember where I was when my sister Kelly called to tell me what was going on. I was in complete shock as she was telling me.
Thank you to all those who serve!

Don't ask me what that look it on my face, I have NO IDEA!!!! Katie was pretty tired by this point. We didn't last much longer but we had a great time. Can't wait to do it again. Hopefully next time we will be at Lavelle Edwards stadium in Provo Utah cheering on our BYU Cougars.
