The Sollenberger Classic

The MV Pirates got invited back to the Sollenberger Classic this year, and we had lots of fun visiting them at the Biltmore Hotel and swimming.

I'm glad that I have such good swimmers!

Isaac really liked the hot tub.

Their slide is lots of fun, and the pool workers are a lot more laid back than at our resident's pool.

Cute little Finney Lynn!

The splash down.

Lexi started cheering and yelling "Woo-hoo!" When I came off the slide once, and we started doing it for everyone after that. The person coming down the slide would then make a pose. It was pretty fun.

The girls in the pool. Minus Grammy Jo. It was kind of sad, because Isaac really wanted her to go down the slide with him. The first day she said she didn't want to get her hair wet, but she would go the next day. Then the next day, she realized she wasn't going to have time to wash her hair and leave to where the team was going, so she told him she couldn't do it again. He thought dripping water all over her hair would solve the problem--her hair was already wet, so then she could go down. :(

Cute kids in front of the slide pool.

Here is our group ready to cheer on the pirates. My friend Lauralyn was here this year with her husband Kelby. It was so fun to see her! We grew up together, and we were roommates together in college, so it is always fun to catch up.

The coach.

We had field passes, so we went down and took a picture of the line of scrimmage.

Lexi was totally embarrassed that I made her take this picture, but I thought we needed a picture of us on the field at Cardinal's Stadium. Also, I noticed that we seem to be taking after my kids here--faces pointed the right direction, eyes were looking at the camera screen...

Even though the Pirates lost this year, it was a super fun time! Hope they get to come back again.
