Football Frowns :(

Well the weekend with friends and family was fun but both of our football teams left us frowning by Sunday's end... :(

We headed up to Waco for the first BU home game this weekend... It was our first time to take Caden to a Baylor event... needless to say we were super excited but also a little weary of what our first experience would be like.

All week we had been seeing the glorious weather forecast for Game Day... 85 and cloudy... no problem! We could totally handle that... Caden would be cool and we would surely be able to make it to half time right?!

When we woke up Saturday morning the weather was gorgeous... cool, breezy, sunny... so we got dressed in our first of two BU outfits for the day and headed to eat breakfast at Cafe Cappuccino for Nana's birthday! YUM!!

After breakfast it was becoming increasingly warm outside. Still having faith in the "weather man" we were assured that the clouds would soon be rolling in and the temperatures would come to a halt... 

So we headed home and did a little pre-game workout before nap time...

After nap time Great Poppa and Great Gran had arrived and it was time to get the party started... 

(This is the guy Caden gets his GINORMO head from... see the resemblance??!!)

The rest of the Cox crew headed to the stadium before our little family of three. They were tailgating before the big game, but we decided that the game was all that we would be able to handle, so we put Caden down for his afternoon nap and waited... and waited... then we couldn't take it anymore... the excitement was too great. We woke him up, got him dressed and hit the road. Almost an hour later we were inside the stadium with only one meltdown so far!!

So I know you're all curious about the weather... the clouds? The temps? NO CLOUDS... RISING TEMPS! SWEAT!! LOTS OF SWEAT! And red, RED, RED cheeks for the Cade-man! Poor, sweet thing... he was pretty miserable! Between the sun, the Bjorn, and his Daddy's body heat he was "cooked!" We did the best we could and entertaining him in the stands and were successful for about 1 quarter...and thankfully that was the most exciting part of the game... Baylor scored right out of the gates and we all cheered...

Well Caden didn't so much cheer... he cried... but can you blame a kid? His Daddy jumped up in the air with him and the CROWD WENT WILD... and Caden decided that football games were not what he was wild about... 

We were able to see a few friends and feel the electricity of another football season, so all in all game day was a success... as much success as it can be with a 8.5 month old on a HOT Saturday afternoon! 

We are keeping our fingers crossed for cooler weather by Homecoming... surely... right??!!

After the game we picked up some dinner and headed back to the house... stripped down the Cade-man and let him cool off!

It was early to bed for lil man that night and for Mommy and Daddy too... 

And hopefully for the Bears also... they have lots of work to do before next game! We're still hopeful for an improved Baylor football season... notice I say improved... just improved... that's all we ask... Sic 'em!

And as many of our fellow Cowboy fans out there know, Sunday didn't go much better for us... BUT Caden was sportin' his Romo jersey that his Uncle Josh and Aunt Emily got him all day yesterday...

I would hate to think that Caden is the bad luck charm?!!! :) Not possible!! Look at that face...





This morning we decided to turn our frowns upside down and smile about a great week at home...

Happy Monday!!
