Capital One Bowl Pep Rally

On Thursday afternoon, we decided to go to the Capital One Bowl Pep Rally.  It was held at an Orlando outdoor mall.  They had face painting for the kids, balloon animals being made, music being played and an all around fun atmosphere.

While we were waiting for the fun to start, one of the photographers for The Decatur Daily took a great picture of Alex and Larry.  It was even published on their website!

Going into it, we knew that each team would have their band play, cheerleaders cheer and the head coaches talk for a minute.  Fortunately for us, they also had a few players for the teams show up as well and Eli Gold (the voice of Alabama football) was there to introduce Nick Saban and the rest of the team.  It was so neat and something great to be a part of!

Here are a few pictures from the Pep Rally:

Ok, these pictures are pretty funny....Alex is checking out his face make-up in Larry's glasses:

Unfortunately, we didn't stay for the part of the Pep Rally for Michigan State University.  Alex didn't nap all day and he was getting cranky and we knew that we had a 2 hour drive ahead of us to get to Tampa to see my family!  We had a great day and loved all of the Capital One Bowl festivities.  

We can't wait for the game....we are so excited!
