After naps we headed to the zoo. Madison has a free zoo and it was great. We saw a lot of animals and we went on our first carousel ride and hit up the kiddie train.

The team seemed much bigger this year. Now you can play where's Neal...
After that we decided to walk around downtown Madison. They had a huge farmers market. It was very nice.
The babies sporting their OH - IO shirts.
After that Neal headed to basketball practice and the babies took a short nap in the car. Next thing was a tailgate and the opening ceremonies. Grandpa Moustache did quite a few laps and finally got the babies asleep at about 8:30 (typically they go to bed at 7). We positioned them so we could see them from the stands.
It is quite inspiring to see all of the lives that were saved by transplantation. I again had tears when the living donors and donor families proceeded out. It truly is a miracle the sacrifices these people have made, not to mention the fact that they are supporting the cause. I believe there were over 130 living donors in attendance. I immediately thought of how lucky we were to have Ryan make the decision to donate to Neal. This is my favorite event at the games.

We left at 5am, so I figured we would have some more sleeping in the car, but really only 2 very short naps all day.
After arriving at the hotel we decided to take the babies swimming so they could enjoy themselves a little. If they were not totally exhausted before swimming they were after.
The babies first kiss! Ok, it was a little staged since we did not have the camera ready for the first one, so it is really the second. They are just starting to kiss and wave at one another!
Gwen is our fish, she loves the water!
After this long day. the kids and the adults were out before 9!
