Season opener Redskins-Saints Weekend

Jordan and I decided that the kids and I would move to DC by the second game of the season. This gives me time to pack and find a place to live so that hopefully there won't be any hotel living time during the transition. So after finding out he made the team last weekend (woohoo!!), we started working on relocating. 

The season opener for the Redskins was in New Orleans this year which is super close to Houston! I couldn't resist making the day trip for the game and seeing him again in person. It worked out so well because our friends the Niswangers were in town for the LSU game on Saturday and when they realized Jordan would be playing there on Sunday they decided to stay for that game too! I had our sitter come over at 5:45am on game day and she took the big kids to church, put them down for naps and played/swam all afternoon then she fed them dinner and had them back in bed by the time I got home that night. They had a blast and it worked out perfectly! 

Audrey and I took the first Southwest flight (free again) in to NOLA, a quick 45 min flight. We landed around 9:15am and the Niswanger's and Rudy's sister and Brother in law came to pick us up at the airport and head to the game. It was a noon game. 

We had been warned this would be one of the loudest games we'd ever been to so I brought out the big gun Peltor ear muffs this time. 
We arrived in time to watch warmups. The o-line warmed up right in front of us.
Audrey did her thing....ate, slept and played on various peoples laps all day. While we all enjoyed a WIN against the Saints! It was a VERY loud game.
Patricia was 33 weeks pregnant with number 4! This was my last time to see her before Noah arrives.
We were able to talk to Jordan for a quite a while after the game. We had such a fun day and it was so good to get to see the Niswangers one last time and of course see Jordan again! We leave on Friday for Washington!
