Fall 2012

Fall 2012
[learning to live a perfectly imperfect life]

Fashion Statement

This is where we wear our skirts... so why wouldn't the tree?

First Time

First time walking to the Metrodome for his very first Vikings game

First time posing in the cold weather just outside the dome

First time watching the players come in from the parking lot
(spotted Adrian Peterson, Jared Allen and Kevin Williams)

First time at the official "Vikings Locker Room" purchasing his first game souvenier

First time seeing the field

First time finding his seat

First time discovering that kisses are nearly impossible wearing a helmet

First time showing his "tough face" and getting psyched up for the game

First time watching the Vikings ship inflate and the fireworks explode for the introduction of the players

First time cheering the players on one by one as they come onto the field

First time taking pictures of the action with Mom's little pocket camera

First time watching a pro-football game live and in person

First time munching on popcorn in a very large and over-priced popcorn tub.

First time realizing that the 1st half of the game is intriguing, but that he's only four, and he still gets bored for the 2nd half and needs his Mom's phone to keep him entertained. (At least her phone case is purple, so he still looks supportive of the team.)

First time covering his ears when the crowd gets a little rambunctious

First time falling asleep in the car after his very first Vikings game

First Vikings loss of the season.

Okay, so maybe that last one wasn't a first.


Cards have been written (and adequately covered in stickers),

(Adding his name was an afterthought... so he squeezed it in where it fit!)

smoothie cups have been decorated and labeled,

and the cake has been frosted and bowls of cake batter have been licked clean ,

(Any guesses on the cake?!)

all in preparation to celebrate THIS DAY!
