{BYU Basketball}

My good friend, Tiffany, arranged for a large group of families to get tickets to the BYU vs. University of Portland basketball game in February.  When the Cougars play just 2 hours south of you.... you go!  We had SUCH a good time.  We left in time to get some yummy pizza in downtown Portland before heading to the game over in UP.

BYU fans travel to see their team!  The Cougar fans filled at least 2/3rds of the an AWAY game.  We also saw a lot of familiar faces that traveled from Seattle and Vancouver for the game.  BYU fans unite!

I'm glad I printed off these BYU signs before I left...the kids loved them.  

A bunch of fun ladies at the game who share the passion and love for BYU.  

The Cougars WON, which was awesome.  But then we stuck around after the game to wait for the players to exit to the bus.  A lot of fans had the same idea, so it was crowded, but we did manage to get a few pictures. {I promise Carson was with us...but he was off with friends and is clearly missing from ALL of these pictures!}

Addy with the coach, Dave Rose.  

And this one made her giddy!  Tyler Haws!! He was being swarmed by fans, but she was persistent and got a picture with him and his autograph! She was on cloud nine!! 

It was a late night traveling back to Puyallup, but what a fun night!

Fun! Love these little BYU fans!

Crazy enough, I grew up with one of the families in the background of one of your photos!

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?
