A Tar Heel Family Outing!!

Continuing my blog posts from last weekend....After our busy morning at Reagan's birthday party and then a soccer game (more on that later), we headed home for a quick change into our UNC attire to head to the UNC vs. ECU football game (10/2/10).  

We were supposed to meet our friends, the Hermans, there and mill around Tar Heel Town a bit before heading to the 3:30 kick-off.  But we were running a little late and they had done most of Tar Heel Town, so instead we met them under the Bell Tower for some fun.  

Emerson was very excited to see Ivie and Macie and to cheer on the Heels!!

Love this picture of the Bell Tower, just wish the people weren't at the top.

Our little Tar Heel, all decked out for the game...and all smiles considering it was going to be 
a "no nap" Saturday!!

I love this picture of Emerson and Macie, it completely captures the girls' personalities, silliness, friendship, and bond!!

 All three of the girls, as Amy put it, are pretty impossible to get a great shot of, but our quest continues and I know Amy and I are determined to one day get that winning shot!!  

A quick lemonade break!!

Emerson really wanted to get her face painted like Ivie's, but when it came time to sit in the chair, she wasn't having any of it.  So she opted for the Tar Heel on her hand instead.  I still love her little wrists that are losing their baby fat so quickly...ahh, she is growing up so fast!! (TEAR)

After the bell tower fun, the Hermans headed back to their car, as the Herman girls were all headed home for a nap.  Danny, Emerson and I headed towards the gate to grab our seats and enjoy some people watching before the game.  

Emerson loved watching all the pre-game excitement.  She immediately picked out the cheerleaders and stated, "they are dressed just like me, Mommy!" She had a great time chanting TAR, HEEL, TAR, HEEL; shaking her pom pom; and dancing to the pre-game band music.  

Go Heels!!
 

TAR.....
(can't you just see her saying it in this picture!!)

Here come those Tar Heels!!!

The fireworks were a bit loud!!

About five minutes into the game, maybe even three, Emerson decided she was bored and begged to play the matching game (her new favorite game) on Danny's IPhone!!  When she was bored with that, she got a major case of the wiggles, but luckily she had three laps to go between; mine, Danny's and Birdie's.  

She spent a fair amount of the first half on Birdie's lap, playing with his sunglasses and wondering what he was yelling at the whole time (if you know my dad, you know he is very vocal at Tar Heel games).  

Birdie's sunglasses kept Emerson occupied for awhile, even when she should have been cheering!!!

Back to paying attention to the game!!
 

One of my favorite shots of the day...I am sure this was a special moment for Birdie, his two favorite loves Emerson and the Tar Heels!!

Back to her seat, a pretzel was surely going to be the cure for the second quarter jitters!!

That didn't last long, Emerson was back out of her seat, but this time it was for all the right reasons...to cheer her Tar Heels on!!  

Although we only lasted for the first half of the game, it was a good thing we left when we did.  We were losing when we left, but by the end of the 4th quarter, the Tar Heels pulled out a big win.  What a great day, the weather was perfect, the Tar Heels won, and I got to spend a few hours with three of my favorite people.  

Go Heels!!
