Date Night - Real SLC

Salt Lake has a soccer team - the REAL Salt Lake (pronounced REE-ALL). Our friends Jeff and Kristin have season tickets. They couldn't use their tickets this weekend and kindly offered them to us. Grandpa Gray was more than willing to babysit (game started at 8pm - kind of too late for Zach to go). We had a great time!

They "dedicated" the new stadium (that was finished October 2008) before the game - they had the air force drop some sky divers down - one was even carrying the American flag!

Then they had this whole "Charity starts at home" theme going. So David Archuletta sang the National Anthem and was hosting a concert at the end of the soccer game. The boy can sing, but we opt'd not to stay for the concert - too many high pitched screaming teenage girls were in attendance and we feared for our hearing.

The game was awesome. Salt lake started the second half by scoring the first goal of the game. Unfortunately - Colorado was able to also score a goal in the last 5 minutes of the game. So it ended as a tie 1-1.

Dustin was in charge of pictures during this date and here are the snap shots he keeps laughing about:

Notice the lady behind Jen? Dustin took this picture and then when he looked at it on the camera he started laughing out loud. He showed Jen the picutre and Dustin kept looking over at the lady next to Jen and laughing. The lady caught on we think...because she proceeded to change her seat. The reason Dustin was laughing is the look on the lady's face is her normal look...she didn't pose.

Dustin tried to get a "couple shot" and Jen tried to sneak a kiss for the picutre. She was a bit too late but Dustin couldn't stop laughing about Jen's eyes in the picure.
