For Christmas Max and Tyler got tickets to the Holiday Bowl from my mom and Max was just beyond shocked that he was going to get to go see the Bears play!! (Unfortunately he had to watch them get beat embarrassingly by Texas although he didn't seem to really notice and was just so excited that "CAL SCORED 10 WHOLE POINTS!!).
The game wasn't until 5pm but all day he wore is Cal t-shirt with his Cal jersey over it and his Cal hat. And he would have worn his new Puma light up shoes but they had red on them so he opted for his Vans (his idea). He was SO SO excited!! Tyler said he was just beaming and loving every single second of being there. He even got to meet Oski!! I wish I could have been there, too, but Lia would have never lasted.
They sat with one of Tyler's friends from Cal, another diehard fan, and he taught Max some cheers. Max was ALL over the cheering!
Seriously, this was 100% a dream come true for this little kid. He just kept saying it was the best thing ever. He came home exhausted but the happiest I think I've ever seen him. Such a funny cute boy! Too bad he didn't get to see them win. But like I said, he didn't really get that they didn't! He was pretty psyched that when they did score their ONLY touchdown he got a kit-kat.
Tyler said he never got tired or whiny or bored or anything at all. I think we have another lifelong diehard fan on our hands!
