It’s the day after the game and little Stone is rocking himself to sleep in his porta-crib cheering, “Yeahhhhh Eagles!!!! Yeahhhhh Eagles!!!”
What a phenomenal experience we had at Lincoln Financial Field when it came to the Eagles vs. Colts pre-season game! We came up to our seats just as the entire Rocky Balboa/Philadelphia Eagles
beginning fever frenzied pitch began…I have to say…Holding Judson’s hand and experiencing that with all my boys watching the players run onto the field is probably one of the biggest highlights of our trip!
I watched as my good friend Kelly Parkey’s son Cody (Eagles player #1, NFL rookie scoring leader of 2014) kicked off the start of the 2015 season. I prayed so hard last summer and enjoyed living vicariously through Kelly as her boy made his way into the NFL! Now I was getting to see him kick off the 2015 season! As if that wasn’t enough, we got to watch Tim Tebow debut in his first NFL game since August of 2013…It’s been a long two years waiting to see our favorite player back out on the field!
We had promised our boys an NFL game. What they got was the opportunity to watch two of their favorite players on the same field, and enjoyed it all in the middle of a city where Rocky Balboa – the fictional epitome of the American dream– and the genesis of American history collide. What a day. What an opportunity. What a road trip to remember!
Sisters who play together, stay together!
Ryli really loved the game too!
Ransom prays for Tebow’s pass…
And Tebow runs in a touchdown! Look at Judson’s face!
Best Dad in the world. He held this baby the entire game!
