On sunday, after breakfast, Ben decided he needed to take advantage of the free face painting in our hotel lobby.
We decided to walk to the stadium from our hotel about 3 hours before the game started. He kept getting more excited the closer we got.
I really don't know that I've ever seen him so happy.
I was excited too.
Here he is kicking a field goal at the budweiser station. He made his second attempt, and was so proud! And since I signed up to be a designated driver, I got all my beverages at the game for free.
This was a throwing game. Ben made 3 out of 4, and won a shirt. I was surprised that I made 1 of 4. Definitely didn't expect to be able to make it at all.
Ben's first time in arrowhead stadium. They kept reminding us on the screen that it is the loudest stadium in the NFL. We were in the first row, and it was fun to watch all the goings on before the game, that you wouldn't normally notice.
The team warming up.
The new coach. Ben really likes him, though he doesn't seem to be doing too great a job so far.
We were so close to the field. When we went in Seattle, we were in the front row too, but it was higher up, so you couldn't quite hear what was going on. But here, we were barely up a few feet, and could see and hear everything.
It was really so much fun. We sat next to a guy in a sombrero, and everyone was shouting at him to sit down, and one guy even started throwing popcorn! but when Ben got back to our seats, he told them, we are standing, and they should stand up too, if they want to see, and they didn't throw any popcorn after that. Another reason it's good to have a large, intimidating man around. The Chiefs lost, and the second half wasn't as exciting as the first, but we still had so much fun, and can't wait to go again!
One last cheerleader shot.
Last night, Ben made a tiny hamburger for Evie, and wanted a picture of it, so here ya go!
