A True Packers Fan


Colby and I spent this last weekend in Atlanta. Colby was dying to go to the Packers vs. Falcons game and he couldn’t find anyone to go with him. I had photography sessions scheduled and I didn’t know who would take care of the boys while we were gone. I decided to re-schedule my photography sessions and give my mom a call. She agreed to come stay at our house for a few days with the boys and thanks to my awesome photography clients I was able to re-schedule them so I could go to the game with Colby!


We spent all of Saturday in downtown Atlanta walking around and hanging out at the CNN center. We ate at McCormick & Schmits and it was delicious! We sure got a lot of smack talk because we were Packer’s Fans, but that didn’t seem to bother Colby one bit!


The Georgia Dome was awesome! I was a little nervous to go on the trip because I knew it was going to be freezing. After I found out the Falcons played in a dome I was good to go!


Thanks to an awesome co-worker, I was able to wear a Donald Driver Jersey! He is my favorite player!


We had some awesome seats! We sat on the 25 yard line just ten rows up! We could see everything! The only bad part….We were the only two Packers fans in probably that whole section!

Our section sure got quiet when the Packers took the lead! We were pretty excited!


I love this picture! It was just a random photo, but after I got looking at it, a fan is pointing to Rogers at just the right time! The view wasn’t too bad either!







This was probably the best part of the night! Cullen Jenkins started joking around with the Packers Fans and posing for pictures! He had all of us laughing!



I made Colby smile for one last picture! This was near the end of the game.


After the game, the Georgia Dome was completely full of Packers Fans! Everyone was shouting, “Go Pack Go!” I couldn’t believe how loud it was!


We had to ride the subway to and from the game. Can I just say I hate the Marta! It is dirty, smelly, loud, and there are a lot of scary people around! I am glad I live in Utah!


On Sunday morning we had to get up WAY TOO EARLY to make our flight! We only had about three hours of sleep! This photo was taken at about 3:30 am. We were so tired!

Colby and I had a lot of fun on our quick little trip to Atlanta and I am so glad we were able to go! Colby laughed because every game I have been to with him, the Packers have won! Maybe I should go more often right? I have became a true Packers fan and I love going to the games with him!

I can’t thank my mom enough for coming down and spending the weekend with the boys! I know how hard they can be at times. It was so nice to have a fun weekend with Colby as well as have a small break from the boys. As much as I love them, sometimes I just need some time away from them! Thanks again mom! I love you!

Glad you had such a fun trip. It was fun to be there when Easton had his “first tooth” appear and help Trevin play in his sandbox. I enjoyed being with my grandkids. I hope the Packers make it to the Super Bowl! Love you all!

Oh my goodness! I can’t believe that Colby is still a Packers fan! I remember he was a fan waaaay back when we were little…possibly Elementry School times! Looks like a fun trip. :)
