We had only been to the Melbourne Cricket Ground once before so it was fun to be back. The place apparently holds 100,000 people.
I took this picture off of snapchat of us waiting for the game to start. It was COLD. probably about 50 degrees, but it was pretty windy and it felt a lot colder than that to us.
The traditional footy game experience consists of beer and a meat pie for dinner. I don't like beer much, so I left that to Peter, but I did enjoy a meat pie!
Richmond was actually predicted to lose the game to Hawthorn, but they pulled out a win and we got to see a pretty close game.
Lauren took this picture of Matt, Peter and me toward the end of the game. One thing I like about footy is that it's pretty easy to follow and the time never stops so the game doesn't seem as long. I generally like watching American football, but the games can go on FOREVER; two minutes of play can take a half hour.
Overall, we had a fun day celebrating and a relaxing weekend. We once again played some virtual golf on Sunday and I'm pretty sure Peter is eager to hit the actual golf course come spring.
On Thursday, we are ditching the end of winter here in Melbourne for some warmer weather in Brisbane and we can't wait!
