On June 24, one hundred underprivileged children were invited by the Dallas Cowboys, in collaboration with Ashley HomeStore's "Hope to Dream" charity and The Salvation Army, to enjoy the 'ultimate' sleepover experience on-field at AT&T Stadium.

Lined up on the field for every single one of the 100 kids invited was an individual bed, outfitted with blue and silver Cowboys bedding, quilts, teddy bears and other awesome swag.

Needless to say, it was the cutest event to ever take place on a football field (sorry, Puppy Bowl.)

The best part of the whole affair?

After a fun night of eating pizza, hanging out with NFL football players and cheerleaders and watching movies on a giant projection screen, the children were told they would get to keep the beds -- how 'bout them Cowboys!

Mary Ann Downey Kirby, who attended the event in Arlington, Texas, shared some beautiful photos from the event on her Facebook page that have since gone viral.

"These kids don't have beds of their own....and now they will," she wrote in her accompanying post, which has already been shared over 130,000 times.

"I'll be the one standing off to the side, bawling."

So will we, Mary Ann. So will we.
