The Day for the Emerys

It was surely a beautiful day even though it was a bit windy. I felt autumn in the air! We went to Sport's preseason football game and I was actually a little cold sitting in the shade. The game was exciting, but our boys finally went down with a 12 - 6 loss. I'm of the opinion that sometimes losing the preseason game is a good idea. It keeps the boys from getting overconfident.

After the game we made our way to Prospector Park where the girls were helping with the carnival for the Emery family that I posted about a couple of days ago. There were lots of people there and the kids loved playing the carnival games and jumping in the bounce houses.

Most of the kids rode the mechanical bull. Bean Dip was especially good at it, but Curly was upset when I told them to up the speed a little and he fell off.

They had a huge silent auction and I just couldn't resist putting in a couple of bids. It is such a good cause! Anyway, I won two things, a Dr. Seuss set for $15 and a birthday party from Menchies! I'm thinking that might be the perfect thing for Crafty's birthday next month. It makes my life a little easier, but her only dilemma will be which 10 friends to invite.

Even the Dog Walker found something he was interested in buying, a big indoor light set for Christmas! It was only $10 and he felt like he got a great bargain. You  know how he feels about his light displays...

The high school teams gave great support to this event too, and we watched the Football team and the Baseball team in a tug-of-war. After a while the football team performed the Hauka and that was really fun to watch. We ate lunch from Texas Roadhouse and just enjoyed the feeling of being part of something good.

Scout has no fear when it comes to these kinds of things!
We went on another field trip I will tell you about tomorrow, but when we got back my sweetie took Sport to the football game at the high school. Everyone was excited because the game was actually broadcast on ESPN! I guess we are finally making the big time here in our little town.

At least the football team is.
They won, by the way.

Another wonderful adventure with your family and one with a good cause.
We also attended the game for our Grandson who plays for a team in Idaho that played Bingham high; and they are way good and we live in the boundaries. Of course we had to cheer for our grandson's team. They played a great 1st half but lost in the end. We had a good time.
