Go BIG BLUE- Blue and White Weekend

Braiden had and exciting weekend on April 10th.

On the 9th, we were invited to an awesome b-day/tailgate party where some BYU Football players
were invited to be the center of attention to 30+ prepubescent boys, including Braiden (there were a few grown men that were pretty excited to be there too).  Braiden was completely impressed and
inspired that evening. He loves football and he especially loves BYU football.  These guys were really awesome to Braiden and all the other boys there that night by signing footballs, t-shirts and
other stuff and taking hundreds of pictures.  Its great to have local role models for my son
that have achieved goals that he thinks in his young mind are impossible.

He left that party feeling completely on "CLOUD 9".

BYU QB Riley Nelson and Braiden

The next day, BYU had their pre-season Spring Blue and White Scrimmage at the Cougar Stadium.
Although the weather was cold and wet...a typical Utah Spring day, Eric and Braiden went to watch some of the players he had met the night before play.
He was so excited to see one player in particular that he spent a while talking shop with...Riley Nelson. 

That was a good weekend for Braiden.
Go Cougars!
