(Just a little family vacation stuff here at the beginning...if you want, you can scroll down to see my latest "sewing" finish). In my last post I mentioned we went away for the weekend. Well...this is where we went...
The University of Phoenix Stadium, home to the Arizona Cardinals, the Fiesta Bowl, and a recent SuperBowl. Actually, I'd never seen, let alone been inside an NFL stadium before this weekend...
I was pretty amazed at how big the stadium was! We weren't at the stadium to see the Cardinals play, though; my son (who just might love football as much as I love quilting) was playing in the Sollenberger Classic, a two-game event which pitted the Arizona 5A state champions (Chaparral) against the Nevada 4A state champions(Bishop Gorman) and the Arizona 3A state champions (Show Low) against the Nevada 3A state champion runners-up (that would be us--Moapa Valley High School)!
We were excited to win our game 28-26--it was a very exciting game which kept us on edge until the last minute. My son scored two touchdowns for our team, including the game-winning 32-yard run for a touchdown in the fourth quarter!
This was one happy group of boys and fans! It was the first time in history that a Nevada team beat an Arizona state championship team at this annual event (Bishop Gormon went on to become the second Nevada team to do this later that night)!
It took me a while to get his attention...but here's my not-so-little son...still smiling!
I had quite a bit of hotel-time the day before and the morning of the game...it was great to finish the Sarah Jane stitchery I started earlier this summer. I was thinking about framing it, but right now I'm leaning towards making it into a pillow. Either way, I love this little project. I can't wait to start another one of her designs.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
