FSU vs. Virginia

Since we went to the the FSU game last year, we've been talking about going again.  It's really something that we enjoy, and we talked about how we thought LL was old enough to go and enjoy it, too.  As soon as football season started to roll around, we started talking and planning to go.  We talked with LL and she was excited to go with us.  We also talked with Kayla about it, and she was down to come, too!  We sat down and looked at dates, and decided to go with the Virginia Cavaliers game in early November.  The main reason that we picked November is because we did not want to be sweltering hot.  And the beginning of November can go a lot of ways (weather wise) in Florida.  We actually ended up getting a pretty cold weekend for the game.  

I was pretty nervous about the time.  Because game times depend of TV schedule, we weren't going to find out the game time until about a week before.  Since LL was going with us, I did not want it to be a super late game.  I knew that if it was an 8:00 game, we would probably end up not being able to take her even though we bought her a ticket.  Thankfully, it ended up being a 6:30 game.  Even though that was still going to be super late for her (her usual bed time is 7:30-8!), it was going to be workable.  We left right around 3:00 and got there in perfect time to take some pictures outside of the stadium and then sit down for the start of the game!

LL's first Seminole game!

It was also Kayla's first Seminole game!  ;)  I was proud of her for pulling some garnet and gold out of her closet to look the part!  We're trying as hard as we can to convert her!

I was so proud of LL!  She did so good and really had a blast!  Luckily, the two seats next to us stayed empty, so we had a pretty good bit of room for the 4 of us.  LL enjoyed eating and watching everything around us.

It started to get very cold, and LL started to get pretty tired, so we started to get silly.

By the start of the 3rd quarter, LL was pretty over it.  I think if it hadn't been so cold, she would have done a little better.  She snuggled us for the 3rd quarter and then we left.  By then it was 10:30 (and she had done fantastic AND we were winning), so we decided it would be best to call it a night.

We changed LL into her pajamas before we left the parking garage and gave her a big blanket.  Sweet girl was out before we made it out of Tallahassee!  She slept the whole way home and had no problem going to sleep when we took her inside.

It was so much fun to take LL to her first game and to have Kayla along!  I really hope this is something that we start to do yearly now that LL is older.
