On a Sunny Saturday

In October, Adam was asked to help referee for an LDS Institute Young Single Adult flag football tournament.  It included teams from Tacoma to Bellingham.  (If you're not from here, that includes a swath 120 miles long with a whole lot of people in the middle.)

Adam loves to referee (why, I can't say...I would rather do just about anything) so he immediately said yes.  I asked him if he knew how to referee flag football (he'd only refereed basketball as far as I knew).  He said, "No, but it's at Husky Stadium."

That did add a little something.

Our children and I went to watch him for the first couple of hours (he refereed for over 6 hours with a 12 minute break).  It was my first time being in Husky Stadium at the University of Washington.  Apparently the wave originated there at a football game in 1981.  Who knew?  The kids figured out that if they navigated a short wall they could get to the Tyee Club which is where the luxury seats are.  We sat there and watched Adam boss around flag football players.

The view was stunning, the day was sunny with a perfect not too warm, not too cool temperature and we had the Tyee Club to ourselves.

Lake Washington...people tailgate at the football games in boats.  (People that own boats do at least.)

What was not to love?

That's so great. I love the shot of Adam on the field. I'm jealous because we have snow.
