Go Utes! ...well, at least for Women's Soccer.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, BYU's biggest rival: University of Utah. But, we are definite fans now since my sister plays on the Women's soccer team. We've had a few years getting adjusted to wearing red. We don't get hung up on the rivalry...I mean, Trevor has a degree from each school so we can totally claim both. So, move on. We're over it. :o). But last weekend, we came to see HER:

And we came out in full force at the 2 game tournament at the AMAZING Nike campus in Beaverton, OR. The team plays about 6-7 'friendly' games in the spring, and these were the final two before time off for summer. Gorgeous weather, beautiful field, major family, and Trevor's first Saturday off in months...we had a blast. And thanks to Bryce and Beck for hosting the whole crew. Erin took a medical red shirt last year due to an ACL injury, so we were all pumped she was back on the field, and she managed to spoil us with 2 amazing goals in the second game. She's awesome and continues to pull up the athletic average in our family by being such a rockstar.
My mom tricked out all the grandkids with new duds. We were the only Utah fans in attendance the first game...but you couldn't miss us.

Ry Sporting the crazy Ute hair.

Major signage.

A rare smile from my sicky boy.

The sweetest the kids were all day....the cousins love being together...even lunch on a blanket is exciting!

And we snuck over to waterfront park in Portland to play in the fountain. We just couldn't pass up the good weather. The kids can't get enough of Aunt Erin.

Here's hoping to more Northwest games on the Ute schedule in the next 3 years!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
