Fun outing with family: Seeing the Patriot’s play at Gillette Stadium!

In wasn’t until about 9 years ago that I began watching football. My mom loved to watch football and was a big New England Patriot’s fan.  Leao surprised me two years ago and took me to my first Patriot’s game at the Gillette Stadium.  I couldn’t stop talking about it.

My ticket and it’s going into my scrapbook!

I was more than excited when Leao bought tickets for his brother,dad and I to go to the game.  His dad is a big football fan and both he and my brother–in-law had never been to a game before.  I was happy for many reasons but one big one is that Leao was able to provide such a great memory for his dad who is getting older.  Being able to create these special memories with family is what I like most and I know Leao will always feel happy that he did this.

It was great to see all the  aspects of the game live as opposed to on television.  Like how the players come out early to stretch and then run drills.  It was fun to see them interact and some of them even dancing to the music that the stadium played. Then they go back inside to wait to be announced for all of us and the TV watchers to see.

Seeing them upclose was so much fun.

It was a cold day but the sights and sounds of the stadium and the crowd keep your mind elsewhere.



The first half  the Patriot’s played poorly but as they have been doing, the very last minute they pulled out a win.  So a sweet ending to a very frustrating game. Win or lose I was so happy to be there and will definitely do it again.

I hope to make it a ritual to attend at least one game a year.  I am grateful for the opportunity we had to spend with family and look forward to more in the future.

Have a blessed day!
