Rockin' Kaitlyn's World

I'm an Okie - yeah, I'm a Boomer Sooner too - don't hold it against me, in fact, I married a Nebraska Cornhusker so I guess we're a divided household, but our youngest daughter has my passion for The University of Oklahoma!

The lead trumpet player of the OU band was the ring bearer in our wedding! He is an amazing, absolutely amazing trumpet player!

This year as part of Kaitlyn's Christmas gift, we were able to purchase tickets to the game. But that was nothing, we were able to connect with Tyson (lead trumpet player) and attend the band warm-up, the pre-game band concert, etc. SO. MUCH. FUN!!!

We were blessed to stay with my cousin and his family and not have to get up at and hit the road at 2:30 a.m., instead, we only  had to get up at 4:00 a.m. to head out. :D We arrived bright and early for band practice from 5:30 to 7:30 a.m., it was so much fun.

It was very cold, windy and lightly rained throughout the day but that didn't dampen our spirits. Again SO. MUCH. FUN!

Here's a few pictures from the day:
Everest Indoor Training Center - where the band warmed up. 

OU logo on the floor of the Everest Indoor Training Center -
couldn't resist taking Kaitlyn's picture on the logo!

See that guy? He's on the side of the SEMI-TRAILER that carries the band's instruments AND he's the lead trumpet player that was the ring bearer in our wedding. :D It was raining so Kaitlyn was well protected, but we think it's amazing to see him on the side of the truck!!
This is Tyson leading the trumpet section during warm-ups!



Sitting in the stands prior to the start of the football game!

AND to make it a perfect day, the SOONERS won. Great day, great fun and AMAZING MEMORIES!!

Hugs,
