First Trip to Neyland

This past Saturday Cooper and I went to watch Tennessee play Alabama at Neyland Stadium. This was Cooper's first regular season game. Earlier in the year we didn't think it was worth taking him to a game. But since we took him to the Orange and White game in 2009 and he cried when we left, we thought he may do okay. This time I am pretty sure he was more excited about seeing the cheerleaders than he was about watching the game. We had a lot of fun. He watched movies on the way to Knoxville and fell asleep about 10 minutes before we got to where we were going to park. We stayed through the first half and most of the 3rd quarter. When the game began to get out of hand I asked Cooper if he wanted to go home. He said yes and since it was already getting late and we had a long drive home we left. I usually don't advocate leaving a game early, but this was a special circumstance. He fell asleep about 45 minutes into our drive home and we got back around midnight. Overall it was a really fun trip and I think Cooper enjoyed it also. Hopefully it was just the first of many trips we will get to take to see games.

All dressed up and ready to go!

Not looking at the camera. The cheerleaders were right in front of us.
