I thought we would be going to a bunch of football games this year, so I delayed posting this one from September 28th. We missed all of October due to other fun events. Since we also "tailgated" this past Saturday, November 9th, I thought I would go ahead and post. The weather changed, the fun did not! The kids have a great time seeing campus, jumping on the bouncy houses, eating junk and playing in Nicholas's building. It happened back in September after getting back from tailgating, my friend called and asked if we wanted her two tickets on the 20 yard line. We took her up on it. Olivia and I went for Olivia's first ever game! She had a blast!!  Here are the highlights:

September 28 -- UA vs. Ole Miss:  25 - 0

Just out of the car and ready to Roll Tide!

Bouncy houses, here we come!! It was hot, hot, hot that day, but the kids had fun!

We met up with our friends whose kids are our kids' best friends at school:

Then, later at the game, Olivia did great! It took a long time to get into the stadium, but once we were in there, she enjoyed (1) the band, (2) the cheerleaders, and (3) watching the ball. We were close enough to be able to see it!

November 9 -- UA vs. LSU: 38 - 17

It was a perfect tailgating day as it was cool, the fall leaves were gorgeous, and when we got to campus around 11, the bouncy houses weren't totally crowded yet! 

After eating lunch, we stopped by the Natural History Museum on campus. We had done that last year and had a good time, and the kids had a good time again seeing the dinosaurs and other "old things!" It was totally worth the admission cost of zero dollars since kids under 5 are free and it is also free to faculty and staff of UA!

We hit the bouncy houses again and then went home. The kids took naps, and Nicholas let me take a nap while he fought them to take theirs! We had pizza delivered later and watched the LSU game after eating the cake Nicholas baked for my birthday! I only had a small emotional meltdown about getting older!

  1. Sounds like a nice birthday! Especially the nap!! Glad it was just a mini-meltdown ... I hope I didn't start the trend :-P
