The morning of the game and Nathan is awake, showered, dressed, and packed up by 8 a.m.!!
Whether the Bears win or lose (hopefully win), the hours before the game actually kicks off is Nathan's favorite part! The rest of us got up and got ready, then we headed downstairs for breakfast. Nathan wanted to head to the stadium by 10:30, but Peter and I lagged behind a little and enjoyed breakfast. The walk over to the stadium is so exciting....everyone is in full football mode!! The tailgating parties look like so much fun...maybe we'll try that someday.
It was a gorgeous day for a football game!
We went down near the field with Nathan and Kayla. Nathan had bought 2nd row tickets, right behind the Bears bench! :0)
He had already gotten Kyle Long's autograph before we got there. He also got autographs from Tim Jennings and GM Phil Emery (who Peter gave some unsolicited advice to....LOL)
We bought cheaper seats in section 522, row 11, seats 19 & 20 (end of row). Great seats!! To me, in the Bank of America Stadium, there are really no bad seats. Love that stadium!
Even though we weren't as close as Nathan and Kayla!
The National Anthem was performed by Kat Perkins from last season's The Voice.
