Jazz Game

A couple weeks ago we decided on the spur of the moment to go to a Jazz game as a family. I was quite nervous to have all 3 kids at the game. With Alex's non-stop temper tantrums and Nelson constantly needing to be on the go, I thought we were crazy to attempt it! But it ended up being so fun! The kids were so excited the second we got to the hotel. Nelson was just in heaven exploring everything. He insisted on walking everywhere. He would just run up and down the halls laughing. He hated the elevator though, just like his brother Alex. We didn't get as many pics at the game as I would have hoped. We had 2 kids that needed carried and they were giving out big bear mugs at the entrance, so our hands were pretty full!
Jaxson was so fun. He knows all the Jazz players names and numbers so he knew who it was when they would make a basket and he would cheer really loud for them. Alex just stared at the game with a big grin on his face and when everybody would cheer he would turn and look at me and smile. He started chanting "Defense" a couple times but then got embarrassed and covered his face. It was really cute.

Nelson was interested in the excitement for the first couple of minutes and then he got pretty restless and just wanted to eat food off the floor. I was able to get him to last until halftime and then me and him went back to the hotel.
Before the game their were a bunch of team mascots there for the Jazz Bears birthday and they were autographing posters. The kids thought they were so cool. You can't really tell, but Alex fell asleep looking at his poster and he is still holding it right above his face.
Jaxson wanted me to take this pic of him and Nelson. He was like"Mom, look how cute me and Nelson are together. Take our picture!"
After the game we went swimming at like 11pm. Jaxson and Alex LOVED it, but Nelson was a bit tired and cranky. It was so nice to just get away and have a fun family outing even for just one day. We really needed it.
