Hawkeye Football

This past weekend Tim and I went to our first Iowa Hawkeye football game! I feel like we are officially  Hawkeye's now...although...not really...I will ALWAYS and only really be a COUGAR!

We originally planned on taking Kate but after finding out they required that a 16 month old have her own ticket and some friends offered to watch her, we decided to turn it into our weekly date. We had a great time and Kate enjoyed taking her afternoon nap and playing with a friend. Thank you Lowes!

We really had a great time. The weather was perfect and the Hawks even won! I've never seen so much school spirit and was totally amazed by the sea of Iowa gold. Kinnick Stadium, which holds 70,585 people, was totally filled. Man, these Iowans sure know how to support their team...even if they are lousy.
