Mine and Jack's First Professional Football Game...Too Bad it Was a Chargers Game!!

I absolutely love that I have an AWESOME baby who we can take everywhere with us!! This weekend both Jack and I attended our very first professional football game!! Danny came along too, but I didn’t mention him because it wasn’t his first game.

We got up early; packed up Jack along with all his accessories and headed towards San Diego (did you know in German San Diego means whales vagina?). We were running a little behind schedule, which seems to happen a lot these days. In fact Danny even mentioned it on the way down there…that we need start getting earlier starts because now that Jack has arrived we usually run about 15-30 minutes behind everywhere we go!! I was happy to hear that he said it was because we need to divide the “Jack tasks”. Usually I get blamed for us running behind!!

It was a quick drive down there and we parked right in front of the stadium at a cost of $25 for parking!! This was the cheaper of the options…to park in the stadium was something like $45!! For a savings of $20, all we had to cost one street and pass a very strange man selling a Heineken keg he found in the bushes, a bargain to me!!

We tried to meet up with our neighbor, Kacie at her tailgate, but when I asked Kacie where they were located, she said, “In the parking lot.” What!?!? You mean you are tail gaiting in the parking lot!! Who does that? And I mean this football STADIUM parking lot is so small, I could probably totally find you in the like no time!! It is a good thing you are so nice Kacie, I'll let this one slide. Hehehehehehhe. By the time we figured out which section of the lot they were in, which was the complete opposite side of where we were; it was too late to meet up so into the game we went.

Thank goodness we had good seats that were in the shade, because it was hotter than hot outside!! As the guys sitting two rows in front of us put it, with out the cover of any shade, “even my ankles are sweating”!!

Since we were in the shade the heat wasn’t my main problem, my main problem was that the game was the San Diego Chargers vs. the Baltimore Ravens. Why is this a problem you ask? All right…I will tell you. I despise the Chargers and have no feelings what-so-ever for the Ravens, so this left me with no team to root for, just a team to root against. Oh well, what can you do, it was still my first professional football game and I had a great time. Although I don’t think Danny really wanted to go, I am pretty sure he just went because he knew I was excited to go.

Jack did AWESOME at the game. He really is amazing, he only cried once when he got hungry and he even took a few naps during the game. This kid really can sleep anywhere…people were screaming, music was blaring and fireworks were blasting…none of it bothered him!!

There was one song they kept playing that he did NOT like, but I can’t really blame him as it had this super strange sound. It was scary.

On the plus side, the Chargers lost!! Hehehehhehe. Hopefully the next game I will have a team to root for!!

Jack Is Already A Disneyland Pro!!

I may be thirty years old but I really do think Disneyland is the happiest place on earth!! EVRYTIME I go there I get giddy with excitement the moment we hit the road!! I hope that I never loose that excitement for it and I really hope that Jack will share my love of Disneyland!! He may only be four months old but he has been to the park at least four times, and that isn’t counting the times he went while he was in my belly!!

This is one of Jack’s first Disneyland trips!!

(my awesome

This weekend I was missing Disneyland so I sent Danny a calendar invite to take me and Jack on Saturday. Yes, people I really do send Danny calendar invites to do EVERYTHING!! It isn’t that we are super schedule oriented and never do spontaneous things, BUT the calendar invite is the only way I can guarantee that I can get him to do something. Jack and I felt extra special this weekend because Danny went along with us even though it was the first “real” week of college football. Of course this meant some scheduling of time at ESPN Sports Zone and Jack wearing one of his MANY USC outfits was a must.

Jack ready to go for his day at Disneyland!!

This weekend was one of those perfect days at Disneyland…I could feel fall in the air, just barely but it was there, and the park wasn’t too crowded, at least while we were there. Jack, being the Disney Pro that he is, added three rides to his Disney resume, bringing the total up to FOUR! He had already been on Small World, which we went on again, and he also went on Pirates, Buzz and Flick’s train. I know what you are thinking…we are getting crazy, I mean Pirates does have two HUGE drops but Jack is just a daredevil baby. I think the next ride will be Space Mountain; he should make the height requirement any day now.

Here is Jack in line for Buzz Lightyear, please disregard how ick my arm looks, but do notice his USC outfit!! He was ready to go for that afternoon’s game.

Jack beat his Mima(Grandma Bonnie) at Buzz…don’t be too impressed if you knew Bonnie’s skill level at Buzz this wouldn’t impress you. Hehehehehehhe.

Jack also rode on Flick’s Train, so did Mima, Mommy and Daddy. Danny refused to ride solo on the train, he didn’t want anyone thinking it was his idea to be on it, because of course if you saw a 30-year-old man on the ride you would think he was riding it for his own entertainment!! Hahahahhahaa!!

We didn’t get any pictures on Pirates because there is no flash photography allowed…which generally isn’t a rule I follow but I decided to be a good girl!! I know, I am not sure what got into me.

Jack was such an AWESOME little guy all day. I don’t think he even cried once…he did get a little tuckered out by the end of the day.

Now all I need is holiday time at Disneyland!! There is nothing better than bundling up, heading to Disneyland and enjoying the holiday atmosphere, all while drinking a hot chocolate. Oh my gosh!! I am getting excited just thinking about it.

Back in Business!!

So this time I have decided I really am back in business. I haven’t been sure about my blog, hence the lack of posts, but now I know I really miss it. Proof that I am back in business… I have packed my little camera in my purse so that I can document all my adventures with photographic evidence. If the little camera is in my purse or my diaper bag, trust that there are good times to come!! Plus now Jack will be added into the mix of my crazy adventures and let me tell you that Jack is one funny guy!!
