Tailgating on the Quad




We had a great, yet busy time tailgating on the Quad Saturday for the Alabama game! It was humid but not too hot, thanks to the cloud cover! We had good food, good fellowship with great friends, and lots of fun! Emma Claire had a great time with one of her best friends Mary Alice, whom she went to the game with and had a fabulous time - thanks William and Ashley!!!!
She also had a great time on the bouncy things - but she was disappointed that you could only go on them one time per ticket - we're used to having "unlimited" time on them at birthday parties/church functions, etc. Maybe we can bypass the "dollar drainer" as I like to call it next time :).
Fearless Wilson was terrified of Big Al - he clung so tight to Will and buried his head in his neck - only when Big Al was driving off in his golf cart did Wilson finally look up and cheerfully say "Bye Bye Big Al!!" Emma Claire loved him of course!
We didn't lose Wilson, but it was tough keeping up with him - I'm sure I was a sight over at the bouncy things with Henderson asleep on my chest in the baby bjorn (thank God for that thing) chasing Wilson through the 10,000 some odd people out there - he can weave in and out of people much better than I could with a sleeping baby attached to me!!!! Next time I will do like a brilliant friend of mine did and write with a Sharpie on his bicep my cell phone number - or better yet, I will just keep him strapped in a stroller and listen to him scream the whole time =)

Henderson was wonderful - doesn't it look like he's doing a cheer??? Roll Tide Roll!!!!

That IS a brilliant idea about getting writing your number on their arms! I may have to do that the next time we go tailgating or to the fair. He terrified me last year at about 18-20 months old just taking off into the crowd.

Kellie! You not only surived... you actually had a good time! I love the pictures... even though those precious outfits say "Roll Tide!"!

That last pic of Henderson is adorable!!! Sorry we missed you guys on the quad. Yeah, I made EK stay in her stroller despite many protests. It was loud anyway, so people didn't pay much attention to her whines and screams.

Oh you brave one!!! We only took Mary Mac to the Quad and the game, but we stayed on the side away from the bouncy things. She kept asking to go play on them (she couldn't see them, but knew they were there) and we told a little white lie - the bouncy things were closed today!!! I know, it's bad, but we really didn't want to fight the crowd or spend the money!

Kelli,
The kids are so precious in their outfits. Glad that y'all had a great time and I like the tip about the phone number on the child's arm. Roll Tide!
