KSU vs. KU

When we got tickets for the K-State/KU football game a few weeks ago, we were really nervous about the weather.  Little did we know it would be a beautiful, sunny, 70+ degree day!  What a fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon!  And this time we took a few first-timers along.

As we neared the stadium, I told Finn to watch for the "castle."  When we rounded the corner his eyes got wide and he said, "You're right, it DOES look like a castle!"  It was fun to share this experience with the California crew and our friends, Pat and Jake.  The day was even better since K-State totally dominated from the get-go!

Did I mention that it was really sunny?
Did I also mention that we had to stand almost
the whole game?  Luckily for the littlest fans, there
were some strong arms around!
This guy was busy doing a lot of push-ups!
K - S - U Wildcats!

First-timers!
It was Senior Day - which meant it was Weston's last home football game.  We'll always be cheering for K-State, but it's definitely not going to be the same next year.  We've gotten accustomed to watching for #17 during the kickoffs and punts.  Thank you, Weston, for being somewhat of a small-town ambassador during your years at K-State.  You have represented your family and your community extremely well!  And you have been an example for us to point Caiden to when it comes to hard work and persistence!

I wonder what Coach Snyder had to say!
The families all lined up to greet the seniors - Weston's family is in the
middle.

The whole team made a lap around the stadium after the game.
The kids got to high-five all of them!

The highlight for the kids may have been playing on the field after the game.  Weston's dad told us that in their experience, K-State has been the only Bix XII stadium to allow people onto the field after games.  Caiden's dream is to play on there for real someday!  :)  For now, he'll settle for tackling his cousins!
