Whew.... It was a Close one!




Well, the Tide has another victory under their belt, but that one was too close for me - I like to win BIG!!!! We had a great time (again) on the quad. This time my SIL, Ellen and another friend thought to bring riding toys (skooters) and we let the kids ride them on the side street (it was blocked off to all but the occasional bus). It was great weather and so much fun - we had so many children at our tailgate! You could find us just by looking for the tent with all the strollers parked by it!

Emma Claire absolutely loves dogs - she kept coming up missing (no telephone numbers on their arms with a sharpie this time - I forgot =( and we would always find her at a nearby tent playing with a dog - I think I'm going to subtly push Veterinary Medicine for her, though that would probably mean a stint at Auburn so... maybe not --j/k=)!!! I mean, there were a lot of dogs out there on the quad... little bitty ones, like the PIT BULL puppy in the tent next to ours that was only 6 weeks old (thank goodness), or EC WOULD NOT have been holding him and letting him lick her. There were some BIG ones too - I mean 150(+)# mastifs and great danes - Wilson calls them horses!!!!. It was crazy, none of them seemed to bark or poop (or maybe their owners were very respectful and picked up after them)- b/c believe me, had they, my children ( Wilson) would have stepped in it or played in it!!! =)

My parents came in town for the game and my sister and her boyfriend and his parents and brother and friends of friends of friends - it was such a great time of fellowship, fun and food (oh it was good food!)! My parents were a great help with the little ones! Thank you mom and dad!


Wilson had a great time playing with his cousin, Mills, and his best friend, Lee. (Mills and Lee's shirts courtesy of http://www.thepattonpatch.com/ ) Check it out! Wilson had his dump truck out there and was running (and when I say running, I mean running - man he is fast) it up and down the street fully loaded with chips, so he could re-energize every now and then - at least he was eating something! Grandaddy Bud was doing a great job keeping up with him!!!

You can see 2 of the 6 strollers in this picture!!!

Kelli,
Once again the kids look precious. I do have a question. Do you do all this smocking? I just wondered who was so talented. Also, I am impressed with all the different UA stuff. My mom has done a few things for the kids but decided to buy a dress for Zetta Grace at the game last weekend. If you don't smock it, where do you buy your stuff? Thanks. I really think we should get Wilson and Granger together. I think they would definitely entertain each other since they seem to have the same high energy level.

Well, we were on our way to come by (we even saw Wilson and Will), but we kept getting stopped and eventually the heat got to me and then Ellie Kate was a whiny mess! Maybe one day, we will make it to your tailgate! I really want to get together soon! Love all the pics.
