My Very First Chicago Bears Game

Whoo Hoo, I'm going to the Bears Game

our front of Soldier Field 

cool ivy 

found our seats
can you tell how giddy I am? 

announcing the Chicago Bears players
fireworks also,
so cool 

opening kick off 

a man in front of us had this on his hat 

at half time we walked around
this is a view of the Harbor

neat structure 

memorial honoring our soldiers 

This is my very first time at a professional football game. Tom surprised me and bought tickets for us, I was glad he picked a day that was early enough in the season so I didn't get cold. The weather started off a little rainy, but then the sun came out and we had a marvelous day.

I don't know how other fields work, but I loved how at Soldier Field, they honor our Military.  During the game, they would take time to announce individuals and groups from our brave men and women who fight for us.  I was always so impressed how they ended up getting a great standing ovation and cheering from the crowd.

The Bears lost, but thats ok, I had a great day.

Sounds like you had a great time:) I'm not a football fan, so I don't think I'd fare to well in the US!

Your football looks like it was great fun! The ivy on the stadium is spectacular!

I absolutely love Ava's Russian dress you have her in in a previous post. She makes it all the cuter too. :-)
