Zach & Lucy experienced their first football game last Saturday. And I’m not talking about a pee-wee or HS game. We started them out right- a home NCSU game!

We enjoyed years of season tickets pre-babies but didn’t make it to a game last year. I really hoped we could make it work for a game this year.

When my dad, as a former football player, received the info on their annual Varsity Club game weekend, we jumped on it. With the help of my parents & aunt, Lucy & Zach experienced our traditional tailgate {if you sub milk for beer :)}. Friends stopped by, they saw the band perform the fight song & cheered for the players as they got off the bus. L&Z tried Bojangles chicken for the first time {big fans}, practiced saying hi & loved walking around checking it all out.

We left one ergo in the van, so Mom wore Zach while my aunt & I took turns with L inside the stadium. Seeing it all through their eyes {when they weren’t napping through the game} was so awesome. I might’ve teared up as the players came running on the field while she clapped at the fireworks. Sharing something you love & have waiting so long to experience as a parent is just the coolest thing.

Arriving at CFS, Chi O friends with our babies & baby-on-the-way, Lucy & Zach taking in the tram ride, entering the stadium excitement, crappy pic of 3 generations of TOMS wearers.

I laughed with my friend Melissa that we had a goal of making til half time with all our kids. Not sure about her, but we were back snacking in our tent in the rain of halftime & the 3rd quarter.

We decided the day had been a success & made it home in time to watch the Wolfpack lose. So L&Z might’ve not been the good luck charms the pack needed last week, but it won’t be our last game for sure!
