Iron Bowl Weekend

We were so excited about the Iron Bowl this year. We had a hotel to stay at and Will came with us.

Will talked about "going to Auburn" for days.  He was so excited. He loves Auburn and he loves football!

Friday, we spent the day walking around downtown and getting ready for our tailgate on Saturday.  We did some shopping and went to Toomer's Corner. 

Saturday, was the big GAME!  I was glad that it wasn't too cold.  Our tailgate was crazy. We had 6 tents, 4 tvs, 40 friends, and lots of food!

ESPN's GameDay was there so we walked over to see it. I don't think Will had any clue what was going on. But he got some free sunglasses and Cheez-its so he was a happy camper.

It was also an exciting day because Will was going to the game with us.  The last time I went to the Iron Bowl was 2007, so I was so happy to be able to go and take Will with me.  Not very many two-year-olds can say they have been to an Iron Bowl.

Will did great in the game.  He loved the band and the football team. He also kept an eye out for Aubie at all times.  The highlight of his day was when he saw Aubie dressed as Superman! 

I prayed that Will would not have a meltdown during the game, and he didn't.  We spend the 2nd quarter on the concourse eating popcorn and then at the end of the 3rd quarter, Will took a little nap in my lap.  Who would have thought he could sleep with all that noise.

The outcome was not what we would have wanted, but we were so proud of our team and we were excited to make a wonderful family memory.

Sunday, we got up and headed home. With Thanksgiving and the Iron bowl, it was a long couple of days but we got to be together and that is all that matters.
