So, here is a rundown of his 3 activities of drollery and joy:
1. The circus. Too long, too loud and too frenzied, but mostly too long. The boys liked the elephants (for some reason they have both always been elephant freaks) and Lincoln enjoyed the motorcycles in the round cage thing. Personally, I enjoyed the overweight, corny ringmaster singing the National Anthem while a girl in a red, white and blue swimsuit carried an American flag on the back of an elephant. If my heart had tear ducts, it would have been dripping huge droplets. The amount of pride I had at that moment, knowing that I was an American watching an elephant carry a flag with a woman in a swimsuit on it's back is unmeasurable. Fortunately, hearts don't have tear ducts. I'd hate to have a sticky heart.
Thank you Grandpa Yospe for the tickets!
2. The Mayan. Yep, the Mayan. This was actually Lincoln's reward. He loved it and even described it as "better than the Tikki Room". Okay, not exactly a glowing review as the Tikki room is uh... eh. However, it was fun enough for him to continue talking about it for the rest of the day. Now if he would have described it as "better than Splash Mountain" then we would have really had something. The Mayan is known as having some of the most beautiful plastic trees in the world, and it's true! They are lovely.
Thank you Grandma and Grandpa for meeting us there for lunch!
3. The U game. Steve invited Lincoln and I to go to the U game with him and his son. I happily obliged as this was one of the games that I did not have reserved tickets for. Steve brought his son, who happens to be Lincoln's age, and we sat in his company suite.
The suite is fine, just so stinkin high, with windows that seem to separate you from the action. Lincoln and his newfound friend had a great time with all of the free treats and soda. It is nice to sit in the suite every so often, but I would much rather sit down with the blue collar fans like myself, whooping it up and throwing a tizzy in the North end zone.
By the way, the game was well - anti climatic. We'll see what happens on Thursday. It's a huge game Thursday. I'll be back with my peeps in the Red Zone. I have a seat all by myself, but I make friends with fellow Ute fans rather easily. Get ready new, yet to be met Ute fan peeps in the North end zone... Get ready for the Cheeseboy!
Thanks Steve for the tickets and the ride!
Go Utes! 5-0!
