Unexpected



Working on the house, and day-to-day kid activities have consumed us for the last few weeks.  It took free tickets to get us on a family outing today.  We were able to watch the Real Salt Lake (our professional soccer team) play in their first playoff game.  It is only the third game to be played in this new stadium, also.  

We were spoiled and hung out in the coolest suite full of really great catered food.  We had a great view and enjoyed the fast-paced, exciting game.  Some of the fans were crazy.  Banging drums.  Setting off fireworks in the stands and even smoke bombs.  We just sat in our seats and screamed a lot.  

The kids both finished their soccer seasons this morning, so it was a big soccer day.  Besides the joy of being together in a fun environment - I think the best part was that the whole event went smoothly and easily.  Half the time we won't go places because we don't want to deal with the parking, etc., but this was all easy.  

Even if you don't know anything about soccer - I highly recommend going to at least one professional game.

I'm jealous--I'm a big soccer fan (well, football--I follow the English Premiere League), and I'd love to go to a game. Once the new women's professional league is up and running, I plan to really try hard to make it to one.
