BYU vs Notre Dame

Last minute, Curtis got a call from Chad Lewis asking him if we wanted to come on the Legacy trip to the Notre Dame game.  I had to work the whole weekend, so I scrambled and found people to cover my shifts and off we went!  I'm SO glad we did!
Our Itinerary:
Thursday, October 18
Flight out of Provo Airport to South Bend, IN - Tour Notre Dame Campus - Visit Bookstore - Dinner at College Football Hall of Fame - Check in to Downtown Chicago Marriott

Friday, October 19
Free time in Chicago touring the city - Dinner & Cruise at Navy Pier

Saturday, October 20
Breakfast in Ballroom - Game at Notre Dame Stadium - Chartered Flight out of South Bend to Provo

BYU took such great care of us!  All the people who joined us on the trip were amazing.  HUGE BYU fans!  It was really cute to see.  It was one of the best trips I have ever been on!!  :)  

 Our plane, the grotto, the chapel, the gold dome.
 Lake on Notre Dame campus.
 The grotto.
 Beautiful trees.

Love him. 
 Outside of the stadium.
 Touchdown Jesus.
 Love the colors! Notre Dame has a beautiful campus - especially this time of year!
College Football Hall Of Fame.  Curtis spoke at dinner and pumped up all the fans for the upcoming game.

 Good ol' LaVell.

Such a nerd.

 We set the timer on my camera to take some pictures.  We laughed SO hard when we saw this pic haha...

The bean.  We met up with some friends in Chicago and toured the city with them!

Freezing cold!!
 Our view!
They gave us BYU gear for the game.  So cute!
On the bus ride to the game they gave everyone a BYU blanket and a BYU poncho just in case!  Thank goodness it didn't rain!

We got sideline tickets to the game!  Best seats in the house for sure (except you have to stand the whole time - which was totally ok with us)!  

 Packed house. EVERY seat was taken! 80,795 people.
Notre Dame is such a great university (next to BYU). All the fans were so nice to us and really respected BYU.  It was really cool to see.  We had SO much fun!!



Must be nice to be a FOOTBALL STAR! get the ROYAL TREATMENT!..
Glad you had a GREAT time!
