Saquon Barkley And Daughter Redefine Cute Lion Shrine Pics

No Penn Stater’s trip back to campus would be complete without introducing their children to some of the most iconic sites, and a stop at the Lion Shrine for Christmas card photos is nearly mandatory.

But if you think your family is going to take cute pictures at the shrine, you might as well stop trying. Saquon Barkley’s family has set the bar exceptionally high for that.

In town for his ProCamps camp, Barkley took his daughter Jada to meet the symbol of our best, and she seemed to love every moment of it. Barkley shared pictures of he and Jada with the shrine, cheesin’ it up and melting the hearts of followers around the world.

This isn’t the first time Jada has taken the internet by storm during her first 13 months of life. Last spring, the announcements that Barkley and Anna Congdon were expecting a baby and then that Jada was born right before the NFL Draft went viral. On Jada’s first birthday last month, plenty of Barkley’s former teammates posted Instagram stories for her, including Uncle Chico Hendrix, who it appears she enjoys FaceTiming.
