Game Day! ND vs Navy, October 10th 2015
Marcus and I "won" (in the lottery) the right to buy 6 tickets, and we figured the lucky spectators would be my parents, Marcus, and the 3 kids. But Linda offered (insisted!!!) on watching Celeste while I went to the game. My dad bowed out and let me take his ticket. It was so much fun to be back at a Notre Dame football game!
The weather was absolutely perfect, couldn't have been any better. We really lucked out! The kids loved hearing stories of our band days and what football weekends were like for Marcus and I when we were in college.

to me 18 years ago....)
|Dad walked with me to the outskirts of campus to meet Bob|
and Linda, so they could take Celeste after I nursed her one
|ND never misses a licensing opportunity....|
|I met up with Grandma, Mariposa, and Bunny who were already|
in the stadium. Marcus and James had different seats.

|Notre Dame won of course ;o)|
|Grandpa waited in line for the bus back to|
the parking lot, so we just "cut" and didn't
have to wait at all! (crowded bus)
|Celeste was an angel for Linda!!|
With the weather, my family, the win!, and Bob and Linda's generosity, this trip was everything I could've wanted! I am so glad the kids got to see ND and I'm hoping to make this a more regular occurrence.
