Who? NLV

We love the football season when we start out 2 - 0! The year of the fiesta bowl win after win, I started to forget what it was like to lose. I am hoping to forget what losing feels like again this year. It is crazy how much our life revolves around such a silly game. Every time I think about Jays profession and the existence of it (of course I over think the whole thing) it just amazes me. None-the-less it is our life. Jay goes to work Sunday morning at 6 am so he can come home for his meetings before church, make Sac meeting and then leave right after to go back to the office until 10:30 or 11pm, Monday and Tues he does the same in the office by 6am home 10-10:30 Wed he gets home a little earlier about 9 maybe just before and Thursdays we try to get up to the facility to eat dinner with the team around 5. Unless Ashtyn has a soccer game, then Jay tries to make it for the last half. Fridays he gets to sleep in and take Ashtyn to school but then he has to stay with the team until 10 or 10:30pm and is back up to the Hotel first thing in the morning. So we do not see much of him this time of year. The kids are in bed when he gets home sun-wed. It is nice when we have night home games because they give everyone a few hours during the day to spend with their families. This past week I took the kids up to go swimming at the hotel with Jay while I had some "ME" time. The kids loved it. Ashtyn let me know that Jacob only almost drown 2 times....


A few days later Jay had spots on his back and after another day of me begging him to go in he went to see Dr. Ron and apparently Jay contracted some sort of something from the hot tub. EWW! It has made me think twice about going to the pool again....


After swimming we went home put the kids down so they could be happy for the game. Earlier in the week I got a text for a girls night out and since my life revolves around utah football, I suggested we do it at the game. It sounds crazy to have a GNO at a football game, but it was a ton of fun. This year I after worrying about 3 mobile kids at the game I had an the brightest ideas to take a babysitter to the game with me. Carly showed up right at 5 and was SOOO much help. I love this girl! She just takes the reigns and goes. She even had Jacob sitting still in her lap for an entire quarter. The next day at church, I was missing her tremendously! It was so nice not to have to haul 3 kids up and down those stairs for every potty break, drink, hunger pain or boredom break. I have found such a gem in Carly and I am so excited for this season with her!Ashtyn cheering Jacob and his funny clap.
All the girls (Carly, me, Angi, Tara and Katie in front)You can't see him very well, but there is my oh so hot husband with his headset on. All of us girls got a good laugh when after a play Jay and another coach jumped and did the chest to chest bump thing and Coach Sitake almost knocked Jay over...
Now on to Utah State....

I bet Carly's not too sad about he game gig either- what better place to babysit? Way better than wandering around the house with the kids asleep eating stale pretzals.

I just got nostalgic for back in the day! How I loved those Friday nights when we wives would get together. Getting to sleep in our bed alone was pure heaven! I'd endure his phone call home telling me who he was rooming w/ and listen to his complaint about the person. Saturdays were so much fun . . , getting there early, feeling a rush when they'd run out on the field, swearing at the dumb QB each game. Inevitably there'd be a season ending injury while we both question 'is it worth it?'. Sucks that you never get to see him but how fun to know that he is helping these young guys and their families make such terrific memories!

I miss living in Utah, especially in the fall. I hope we can come sometime next month and see you guys and hopefully catch a game.

How I did not catch the junk pose I don't know- I guess I was also so memorized by the mysterious boy in the black:) It is SO funny though, I can't stop laughing at how everyone thinks that's what Katie's trying to grab! Thanks a million zillion for one of the best GNO ever!!!
