It was fun that Dan and Sarah were in town for the Homecoming game as well. We planned to meet them and Amy, Chris and Jane at Cornbelly’s for a couple of hours and had so much fun. My kids were so excited to be with their cousins on the big gunny sack slide, racing rubber duckies, playing in the corn room, riding bikes, watching the pigs race and getting lost in the corn maze. It was a fun place to hang out and the weather was great. After several hours we headed to Amy and Chris’ new place in Provo to check it out and eat dinner. So fun to see where they’ll be for the next year. They can see the Y on the mountain from their front door!

One of the most exciting things about being back in the States, and especially in the West, is our relatively close proximity to PROVO! Chris has been waiting for years and years to have Season Tickets to BYU Football games and decided, with a great home game schedule, that this was the year. We
The first game of the Season we hosted a BYU BBQ with the Gillespie's, Pattersons, Wilhelms, Abbots and Cooks. It was a great time… except for the two hour delay and the loss against Virginia.
Emily, Megan and Dad took off on Friday after work for the first home game of the Season. Even the drive to Utah was pretty exciting for the girls. They got to stay at Grandma and Grandpa’s house, see some cousins, eat at Café Rio and then head down to the BYU Texas game with Dad, Grandma and Grandpa. It was a great win. Chris said that after the game was over the girls were so excited to go down and high five the team.
Two weeks later it was Katie and Luke’s turn to head to Provo for the weekend. They got the BYU/Utah game and since they were calling for a CLASSIC ROYAL BLUE crowd, the three of them got new gear for the game. They went with Lindsey and Haylee who were dressed in Red and cheering for the Utes. Luke and Haylee talked and talked and made each other laugh the whole game and then the whole way home even though it was midnight when it was over. It was a depressing loss – but fun for Katie and Luke to be at the Stadium. Love that Cougar Stadium!!
The whole family travelled out for the Homecoming game against Georgia Tech. It’s a lot of driving for quick weekend and a BYU game but it sure was worth it. We ended up seeing Nikole and John and family on our way into town, met Dan and Sarah and family and Amy and Chris at a fun Cornbelly’s the next morning (post coming), headed down to Amy and Chris’ new place for a great dinner and then headed to the game. This time Grandpa Johnson, Chris, Ryan, Katie, Matt and I got to go. Matt and I took a little walking tour of the stadium at half time to go see Scott, Elisha, Dan, Sarah, baby Kate, and then over to the student section to hang out with Amy, Chris and baby Jane. It was such a fun game and a good win!
