We take the boys to at least one Auburn game every year (and have since they were babies!). Homecoming is usually the best one to take them to because it's typically a blow out and you don't feel too bad leaving at halftime. So yesterday was their first game to attend this season! It was so fun!
I have to first say that these two are going to have an arranged marriage one day...
Joel scored a parking pass from a co-worker and it ended up being right next to the stadium so we decided to tailgate there with the Bridges and the Stephens. The Bridges came to our house before the game and loaded their stuff in our car so they didn't have to carry it from wherever they parked. It worked perfectly!
We got there pretty early and had the best day! We were in a great location with a lot going on. The kids had a blast playing and the adults relaxed! The weather was incredible. It was a nice change!
This is what really went on...
It was actually the best game experience we've had with the boys since we started taking them. We sat in our seats the entire half, and got to see every play. In previous years, we've had to take turns walking with the kids in the tunnel, but not this year! Now, we might have been wrestling a kid or kindly telling them to be still, but they were good! I smuggled in snacks and the boys knew they could have one snack in the first quarter and one in the second, so that helped. Harrison watched videos on my phone for part of the time too! And there was always the "who can find Aubie first game" that was always fun. Anything to keep them occupied and still!
It was great that Hudson is actually playing football now because he was telling us who was on offense and defense and we could talk to him about the game and he understood. He's really growing up!
Oh and Auburn won! Woo hoo!
