Ohio State Spring Game

Sunday, April 26, 2009

On Saturday we traveled to Columbus, OH to join Mike's family at The Ohio State University's Spring Game. On the way we picked up my brother {Uncle Tyson} and he joined us as well.

It was a beautiful day, very warm {85 degrees}, sunny, with a strong breeze that kept the hot day comfortable.

95,722 Buckeye fans showed up for the Spring Game, setting a new attendance record.

Here's a slideshow of the momentous day.

Before we opted to take Cayman out for the whole day, I called the Neurosurgeon's office just to make sure it was OK. I talked to the receptionist and left this message with her:

We would like to attend a college's football spring game and wanted to know if it was ok for Cayman to go with it only being 12 days post-op for her.

Notice I only said, "a college's football spring game." It felt a little awkward to call U of M and ask for "permission" to attend an Ohio State game. So I decided to leave out the extra details and go for the bare minimum. However, my plan did not work out so well.

A few hours later when the nurse practitioner returned my phone call, she asked where we were going.

She just had to ask.

The nurse practitioner had a good sense of humor and chuckled over my awkwardness.

She told me to have fun, Cayman was great to go, just keep a hat on to protect her scar from the sun, and she hopes both sides lose! :)

Great video Kristen!! I'm really impressed with how you timed the music seamlessly into the actual live band music! Looks like you had a great time and I'm happy to see Cayman looking healthy and happy (and looking really good in a BUCKEYE outfit)!
