got the cops called on us

Last night a friend on facebook posted he had 2 free tickets to the game today.  I was the first to respond so we got to go.  Can you SAY SUPER COOL! he was even nice enough to deliver them to my house!

We got a neighbor to watch the girls, put on a lot of layers since it was raining super hard, and drove on over.  We got to our seats in time for kick off.  Well and we stood.  I grew up right, was taught at games you stand and cheer.  When your team needs you this is even more important (and this is SO BYU right now they need all the help they can get) plus the players are constantly trying to get the fans to stand :).  We stood up, and then the yelling started.  People telling us we needed to sit.  People telling us we needed to live our religion, people telling us that its not Christ like to stand when they want to sit, people telling us we are jerks, an old man even swore at my husband.  All because we wanted to stand (this was all during a scoring drive mind you).  One of the people told security on us.  They told us we could stand if we wanted.  This did not fly with the old man, so he went to the cops.  The cops told us we could stand and he understood our want but said we could move down lower as not to cause a fight....which i am pretty sure some of those people were ready for. 
I saw a guy from my work, so we went and sat with them.  (this was about 6 rows down (we were 1st row upper bowl)  but in the lower bowl not upper) Got to stand the whole game and cheer.  I kept looking up to see our wonderful friends up above....i never saw cheering, they never stood.  seriously lame fans! So we had a lot more fun down there so i guess it turned out good in the end......still I think its funny they told the cops on us for standing.........

but who cares my cougars won, we had a BLAST, my husband was soooo nice to those mean people, and the above story happened in the first 6-7 minutes of the game

So what i learned is, some BYU fans are horrible and have no idea how to cheer at a game, or well be nice to people.  But don't worry in their eyes we are the horrible people for standing to cheer......

My current FAVORITE thing EVER!

This pass is my favorite. 

As in my super super favorite.  For $45 (they are all different prices for some weird resaon!) you get a season pass to seven peaks (next year of course) unlimited actives at Lehi and Orem trafalaga (everything but the arcades) plus a ticket to each Owls and Flash game (the minor league baseball and basketball team)  for 12 months! 

That is not even the best part, kids 3 and under are free to all the above events.  So we only needed 2.  We got these on Saturday when Derek and I went on a date.  I took the girls that night, and we went yesterday for FHE.  Jackie thinks they are the coolest places ever. (yes she does need to go to Disney land)  I am pretty excited about them, even more excited for seven peaks this summer!

If you live in Utah country you should check them out!

a wonderful perfect day!

Today was just a wonderful day.  Every part about it was great.  Miss Abby started it off great by sleeping from 8pm-7am. 
Then we got to take the girls to grandpa's house to which Jackie told us, "just give me kisses and leave!" and off to the temple to see a great friend go through for the first time. 
Man it had been a while since I had been to the temple to it was great to go again and just feel that spirit! I did not want to leave!
After we got our girls and made our way home i got to go to the football game with my friend and neighbor Analane.  I even got to go to the cougar club pre game show it was pretty sweet!
we loved the game i mean a WIN for BYU! it was wonderful!

We had great seats and really enjoyed seeing BYU win! I came home to happy girls who had their had fun with their "Aunt brenana cakes" 

I think I really needed a day off, a break from the normal.  I am sure my house might feel different but I really just don't care :) I had a great day I feel great.  I had a ton of fun with my hubby and friend! thanks everyone who helped make today so wonderful! :)
