Last night Robert, Vivian, Dots and I went to the SMU football game. (Sadly Will was over in Fort Worth cheering for our purple rivals.) We didn't tell Vivian ahead of time where we were going lest she get anxious and upset and refuse to get in the car, but she figured things out and cried out "I don't like SMU!" as soon as we pulled onto the campus. Robert was able to entice Vivian out of the car and into her stroller with a promise of a Sprite. After we found our seats in the stadium, Vivian did great - even clapped occasionally and cheered, "Go SMU!"
I'm proud to say the Mustangs won their home opener 28-7 which made for a happy and successful family outing.

Vivian pointed to the Jumbotron and said, "Look! The football game is on the big TV!"
Vivian and Robert (Dots is WAY too cool to sit with her parents when there are friends her age to hang out with in the end zone)

I unintentionally contaminated all of the pictures on my blog when I changed my privacy settings on Flickr. I am working backwards to correct them all, but it is quite a tedious procedure! If you encounter a post with error messages from Flickr where the pictures should be, then I haven't gotten to that post yet. Please let me know and I will update it immediately. Thanks for your patience!
