Chandler was all snuggled up on the couch with me last night watching the Kentucky game, so I decided he needed to have some blue on, too. In case you missed it, the Wildcats are now on their way to the Elite Eight!! In the words of Austin Powers, and Dick Vitale,

Nick, filling out the winner's bracket
Throughout the evening, we met several other UK fans, and made some new friends. We also mercilessly harassed the North Carolina fan who was sitting at the table next to us with his wife, who was from Kentucky, and there to watch the UK game.
Checking out the competition. Nick is a Syracuse fan (the name of the sports bar is New York Nick's), so we had fun harassing each other all night.
Yeah okay, so he kind of has the dirty old man thing going on in this picture, but really, he was a nice guy!
I snapped a picture of this peacock, with his tailfeathers up on display.
"Pretty bird, pretty bird"
Bradley loves getting to feed the animals at our zoo. The goats were particuarly enthusiastic about the feed today.
Check out the giraffe's tongue!
Grandma Anna and Baby J feed the giraffe
Daddy and B take a break
The cougar with the cougar! ha ha
The Kangaroo mama and her Joey
First cousins, Bradley & Baby J
Thanks Grandma Anna for letting us ride the carousel! (Weight limit, Schmeight limit!)
Brian got this monkey to eat out of his hand. I loved the little baby monkey hanging onto its mama. Apparently, these are spider monkeys, so Brian and I had to quote our favorite cheese-tastic line from "Twilight,"
"Hold on tight, spider monkey."
And thanks to Grandma Anna, Bradley now recognizes Bella and Edward from the movies and can name them. Great... Another Twihard in the family! Speaking of, Jaelynn is a spitting image of Brian's sister Heather! She sat on my lap almost the entire time Sunday evening while we watched New Moon. I stayed awake for it all this time!

Even Grandma Anna found some blue & white to wear!
Nevaeh- check out her Wildcats cheerleading outfit!
With mommy's permission, Bradley gets a cupcake!
Our little cheerleader. He stood at the tv and shook his pom pom!
UK alums befriended in Florida: Amanda & Kim
Group Photo- the only person we're missing is John (Anna's husband) who came early, then had to leave and come back later. We had such a great time hanging out and watching basketball together with everyone. Have I mentioned that I am simply mad about March??!!

I have aptly titled this blog post "A Season of Blue" after my favorite blog about UK sports A Sea of Blue. Watching games with friends and family this season has been a blast, and I love recruiting new fans all the time, especially turning my husband and son into Wildcat fans whether they like it or not. Here is a season's worth of our UK clad family and friends:
Bradley with Grandma & Grandpa B in Tennessee after the Louisville game
Freshman roommates Amanda and Ellen, with the littlest Wildcat at Christmastime
Blue Orleans: Conley, Ari, Bart, me, and Bradley during the Vandy game in January
Kim and I lead the old foaggies in the C-A-T-S Cats Cats Cats cheer
My boys in blue
Has anyone else noticed that getting your kids to say cheese does not result in the most natural looking smile?
One lone guy at our table, a friend of a friend, was a Florida fan, and this is what we do to Florida fans' hats
Our friends Matt and Shannon and their son Braylon came to spend a few days with us, and were here to watch the UT game. Matt is a Kentuckian by birth, Shannon is a Wisconsin convert like Brian, and Braylon doesn't have a choice at this point!
Kim took and edited this picture of Bradley- we discovered that pickles are a good distraction and keep him occupied for a while!
Family photo in Blue taken at Pensacola beach after the UT game. Even the sun couldn't cheer us up after that tough loss.
Finishing up the regular season, we watched the Florida game at Buffalo Wild Wings. Ann took this picture with her phone, so it's proof that she was here rooting on the Cats to a victory this day, along with Kim and Greg as well.
Yesterday's nail biter we watched at Helenback's in Navarre with Tyler, Felicia, their friend Bill, and their daughter Nevaeh. Bradley was cranky by the time the game went into overtime, and so all the screaming when Demarcus Cousins made the last shot to send the game into OT made him cry! Otherwise he was a good little cheerleader.
Babies and Mamas: Felicia and Neveah in her pink UK gear, and me and Bradley in our blue
It's just been announced that we're a #1 seed going into the NCAA tournament, and the Florida chapter of Big Blue Nation is up to the challenge of cheering on our Wildcats to victory! In fact, I think we just decided to host a party at our house on Thursday night to watch the first game. Anyone got any great ideas for blue and white foods??
