Go Bucky!!!

Note to self:  95 degree heat for a badger game can cause serious toddler melt-downs.   Now that we know that fact we will never go to another UW football game during a serious heat-wave!  

The morning of the game, we arrived at Union South for the pep rally around 9:15 am.  This part of the day was awesome.  There was a live band, bounce houses, games, a Bloody Mary bar, a huge Bucky balloon and cotton candy.  At 10 am, the UW marching band and cheerleaders arrived to pump up the crowd.  It was a great time for kids of all ages!  But when game time arrived, the heat index kept climbing and it felt like 100 degrees (with no air circulation) inside the stadium.  The kids were hot, tired, whiney and crying for most of the 1st quarter.  We were forced to make the executive decision to call it good and embark on our 2 hour car ride home (translation:  2 hour nap time).  If you ask Cullen and Simone, they had a great time and loved seeing Bucky.  As we were walking into the stadium, a rowdy college kid pointed to Cullen and yelled "future Badger!".  I think it actually brought a tear to Dirk's eye!
