Charlotte is rocking this awesome dress that our friend Enga found in Spokane. I had to spend a night in Spokane on my trip over the weekend, so Eric delivered it when we met up Friday night. I have to admit, if I had known we wouldn’t be able to get great kids clothes like this in Seattle, we may not have made the move!

After a few days of fun and shopping in LA, it was time to get down to business and see our beloved Cougar football team take on the hated Trojans of USC. The morning arrived cool and damp with some pretty heavy rain showers, but we hoped things would get nicer as we got closer to game time. We hung out around the hotel in the morning, then got to the LA Memorial Coliseum about 2. We met briefly with my younger brother Jon, who is a student at nearby Biola University. After that, we hit the WSU Alumni party where we connected with a couple of guys that I work with in Seattle, Curt and Paul.
Walking from the party to the stadium, I noticed something about USC fans: they’re like the Borg. They realize you’re team is no threat so they just completely ignore you. I guess it’s better then being spit on…
We finally got inside the stadium about 4:45, and the game started quicky after. The Cougs gave it a good fight in the first quarter, but clearly the Trojans are from another football planet, and they killed us pretty quickly. It rained a little during the first half, but not too bad. Charlotte was pretty tired as the game ended, so we hurried back to the hotel to get her back to bed and pack.
Tomorrow we fly back to Seattle, but first we’re going to go visit Grandpa Bill, Charlotte’s Great-Grandpa!

The Cougs got a number 3 seed into the NCAA Men’s Basketball tourney today, and Charlotte was dressed for the occasion in her WSU cheerleading uniform. Thanks Scott and Tami, and Go Cougs!
