Time for football game number two! Last Saturday, I traveled to Corvallis for another OSU game. Roger was on a hunting trip for the weekend, so I asked Cody if he wanted to attend the game with me. To my surprise, he said yes! (Cody isn't usually a huge sports fan) I did a short detour to Mt. Angel to pick up my son before heading to Corvallis.

This particular weekend was Father's weekend. Denise had her entire family come down - except for her father! She joked that Cody was her dad substitute and we were going to have to paint a mustache on him.

With two minutes left of the game, the score was 31-14, WSU. There was no hope of a win. OSU fans were leaving the stadium in droves. I told Cody to call Denise and ask her if she wanted to leave. About that time Cody's cell phone rang. It was Denise and she was ready to go!
Even though the game was less than perfect, it was still a wonderful day. I got to spend time with both Cody and Denise. Any day I get to be with my kids is a good day! It's so nice that they are both close by. I'm really looking forward to having them home for Thanksgiving.
