(Preparing and loading up the truck the morning of the big game)
(Savannah showing her spirit as well....a little bit of a color-leaking problem)
When you tailgate, your new neighbors (your temporary best friends) are the people that drove the pick up trucks parked on either side of you, who kindly share a group of porta-potties in the distance. Tailgating fans will sit outside together eating, playing games, telling old football stories as they re-celebrate past wins of their team. Some fans tailgate for the ENTIRE game (never intending on going inside...I am thinking that our neighbors- pick up truck to the left of us, were those such people (never planning on going into the game), as they DID bring their big screen TV along. These die-hard tailgaters will be there even in terribly cold weather. It is the living and breathing essence of the "Tailgating" excitement that keeps them warm!!
We played games and threw the football around, in our tiny parking space. As our family played games and relaxed, we enjoyed the sounds of loud and joyful music coming from the other trucks in the parking lot, but muffled a bit by our "neighbor's" GENERATOR.....that he needed for his HUGE big-screen TV
Jeremy so happily drug out his portable grill, some kitchen utensils, and packed grocery bags full of game day foods, and coolers full of steaks, onions, cheese and sodas. Jeremy made philly cheese steak sandwiches with a side of Au Jus for dipping!
Ahh...the smell of grilled onions in the air)
The sandwhiches were delicious!
The set up and take down, took hours in itself, while the actual meal was only about 12 minutes long.
I guess that it's all part of the experience
Into Cowboys Stadium we go....Sunglasses for all of the fans!
I love Rascal Flatts!! What a great day this is!!
Thank you, Lord for our amazing Daddy! The world has been greatly blessed because of him. He is such a great husband and father!
