Super Soul Day

In honor of the Superbowl yesterday, we spent the day celebrating with football and food.

First, there had to be a game of football in the yard. Little Buckaroo has a strong arm and is very smart, he will be in the NFL as a quarterback soon.

Littlest Buckaroo will play on the same team as wide receiver. I don't know how Olivia Manning does it when she has to watch Peyton and Eli play each other.

Little Buckaroo is so good to play with and teach his brother, he is very patient.

And, this is the thanks he gets, tackled by Littlest Buckaroo.

Backyard football just wears you out. Actually, Littlest Buckaroo loves playing "Walker, Texas Ranger". After being shot he lays there until someone kisses him to wake him up.

We over-indulged on football food. The first course was seven layer dip while the...

...bacon wrapped jalapenos with onion and cream cheese were cooking. Yum!

Then, Hot Wings with freshly made Ranch dressing. Are you getting hungry? I am not because Big Buckaroo and I ate WAY too much! We also has Kielbasa sausage cooked on the grill but I was so full I could not get up to go out and take a picture of those.

I am very sorry for you die hard Patriot fans. We pulled for the Giants, of course, since we had a Mississippi boy (Eli played at Ole Miss) quarterbacking. Mostly though, the day was about being together as a family and making some wonderful memories. Operation Super Soul Day complete.

Until tomorrow,
The Park Wife

Looks like a great day & the food looks fabulous! We were happy with the outcome too, though we have some heartbroken family members this morning.

Loving the Texas Ranger thing. That really made me smile. We pulled for NY too, but don't tell Hallie :) I didn't actually watch the game though because we don't get that channel and we felt like staying in.

Just wanted to say "Hey." Enjoying your blog, and bookmarked it, so I'll be back!

I'm a former southern gal, now in the north. My mother grew up in Mississippi, just outside of Jackson. :)

Those boys have so much fun! That is a good thing. :)

Your food looks great, too.

Did you get to make your trip to the new land over the weekend?

We are going from 75 degree weather today, to rain/hail tomorrow/then snow! What's up with this crazy weather?

Take care and kiss all your men! (One BIG and two LITTLE)

I too am so full, just looking at your photos. Are those PW's jalapenos? It all looks fabulous.

Littlest Buckaroo waits until someone kisses him to wake him up? Enjoy it while they are young. One day they will say, "Yuck, Mom."
