While my computer was down, we took the twingles to their first ever football game.  I received four free tickets to the Hamilton Tiger Cats, Labour Day classic, in exchange for helping Momstown hand out Backyardigans stickers before the game.

The day was actually quite chilly and we bundled everyone up in long pants and sweaters.  Then off we went to Ivor Wynne stadium to hand out stickers.  The twins were super excited and couldn't wait for the game to start.  Mr. Twingle and I thought their enthusiasm wouldn't be long lived as the game didn't start until 1pm and we had to be there for 11am.  However, what we didn't know is that there were going to be activities for kids to keep them occupied.

Even Pickle got in on the action, trying out her first bouncy castle!  Which, by the way, she thought was AWESOME.  She really got mad when we had to leave.

Boo decided he wanted to be a TiCat fan unlike me.  I'm an Argos fan so it's probably a good thing the TiCats weren't playing the Argos as they usually do on Labour Day.  Instead they played the Montreal Alouettes.  

When it was finally game time, we learned that we had seats in the VIP tents in the end zone!  We got free food and a great view of the game.  Here Boo & Pretty pose in front of the gate separating us from the field.

The TiCats set up a play.

Pretty was SO excited to pose with a TiCat cheerleader.

Overall, we had an awesome day.  We had to leave with about 7 minutes left in the game as Pickle was overtired and super crabby.  It was probably good to leave early and beat the crowds all trying to get out at the same time.  
The kids are already asking when we can go again?  Maybe next time I'll take them to an Argos game instead :p
