Notre Dame vs. BYU

We were lucky enough to get tickets to go to the Notre Dame vs. BYU football games a few weeks ago!  My Dad was kind enough to get them for us when he found out that they would be playing and how close we lived!  Its about a 3.5 hour drive from our home- not bad! 
The best part was that a few of Zack's siblings and his Mom all decided to come out for the game too!  We were able to spend some time with them in South Bend as well as Chicago; it was a great weekend!
Here is a picture of Touchdown Jesus as they all call him.  Unfortunately, more touchdowns were made in ND favor than our this game, but we still had fun! The campus at Notre Dame is really pretty and for how large a school it is, it's very close together!  We had fun roaming around the campus to the bookstore and other places.
It was a beautiful day and perfect weather for a football game!  It was fun to be at an away game (neither of us had been to one before!) and to sit among all the other BYU fans who came out to support!  The game started off great!  We just won't talk about the rest....
After the game we decided to do the true "Notre Dame experience" and eat at Legends Grill.  Let's just say it wasn't that legendary...but we had a fun time with everyone!  We loved having Zack's family out for a visit- thanks for coming guys!!

Glad you got to go to a BYU game this season! That will be the hardest thing for us when we finally leave Utah - no BYU football. Although I have already told Rog we have to make it to at least one a year.
