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:
