After a busy Saturday with the Jags, we spent a little more time with our team when we headed over to Fan Day on Sunday afternoon. Football players, cheerleaders, music, autographs, & Jag gear filled the Mitchell Center & the Bowens Bunch was excited to be there!
My youngest son is probably more excited than anyone...he lives & breathes football year round...& the start of a new season has him especially giddy! Tanner's been hanging out & working out with real football players, he started drinking Gatorade so he can be big & strong & have energy like the real football players, & he even wore a jersey & his football helmet to fan day! His helmet is an Alabama one, but he really wanted to have one on. Everyone got a big kick out of seeing this little football player; all of the coaches & players were cracking up at him. He got to run through the cheerleaders, dap up the players, & pose with SouthPaw & Ms. Pawla (our mascots).
Here are some of the runningbacks. They loved seeing the boys, especially the little football player!
Kallie waved to Ms. Pawla,
but she did not want her to get too close! :)
And guess who else was there?! Tanner's teacher, Mrs. Burkett! The real football players, the mascots & coaches, & his teacher??? What a great day!!
There sure are some cute Jag fans...
Tim & I had talked about Tanner having a South helmet. Some of the players gave him a hard time for wearing a Bama helmet & our HC's wife mentioned that maybe our equipment guy could paint his Bama helmet to look like the USA helmets. We left with plans to maybe do that at some point.
Well, surprise surprise...when his daddy got home Sunday night, he had a Jag helmet for Tanner!!! Coach Hewes sent one especially for him & Tanner was beyond thrilled!! Now he has 2 great helmets & I'm sure he'll have his newest one on at all of our games...

Our last scrimmage before the season officially kicks off was this past Saturday morning. I spent most of the game trying to keep me & my kiddos cool...it was a scorcher! Each coach's wife had made cookie bags for players, trainers, coaches, & GAs, so the kids helped us hand out cookies & Gatorade as the players came off the field. They were all very appreciative of this sweet little treat. And, despite the intense heat, the kids had fun & this final scrimmage got us pumped up for the start of the season!
If left unattended, nothing edible is safe in my house,
hence the note...

Tanner came off the field with his daddy.
He was out doing some post-scrimmage "exercise"
w/ the runningbacks!
A couple people thought Timothy was Tim when they saw him in passing. Isn't it amazing how close in size & looks they are?!
Firstborn & lastborn :)
The boys loved this job...they were covered in ice/water
& stayed very cool!
