{Soccer Trip #3: UW}

The final game on our trifecta of trips to see Erin play was close to home at the University of Washington.  After a whirlwind trip to Pullman, we had a one day break for my own kids to play two soccer games on Saturday, and then on Sunday we headed up with the fam to UW campus.  It was pouring buckets as we left, and I was slightly panicked about leaving our big golf umbrellas back home by mistake.  But by the time we made it to Seattle the clouds had burned off revealing a beautiful, sunny afternoon.  After peeling off our layers, and putting on our sunglasses, we were ready for the game!

The whole group!  Another great cheering section!  And another tough loss, but they bounced back and beat #18 Oregon State last week in OT, by a game winning header goal by none other than, Erin.  Sah-weet.

I believe at least one of my parents have traveled and attended every single game she has played in during her 5 years at the University of Utah.  Only the newborn grand-babies kept my mom from a few games.  Major fans and supporters, I tell you what. My Dad is even a member of the Crimson Club.  Yah. Seriously.  And we all have enough Utah red gear to keep cheering for years to come. 

Erin, thanks for being such an awesome Aunt to all my littles.  They love their Aunt Erin to pieces!!

The season continues for a few more weeks, and we are cheering her on from afar.  Good luck Ern! 
Love this sweet pic from the Daily Utah Chronicle.  See the article here too.

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?
