Like I said in the previous post Mrs. Ann offered to keep Walker the entire night (all the feedings!) So Kenny and were pretty excited to be able to relax a little bit and on New Year's Eve to boot! I cannot remember the last time I actually went out for New Years or was even awake at midnight. Our good friends Jay and Margaret came down to Fairhope to stay at the Grand for a little vacay so we met up with them at a bar to watch the Orange Bowl. State was playing Georgia Tech in Miami.
The bar wasn't too crowded during the game and they were giving out fun New Year's accessories which we had to take advantage of photo wise. The game ended up not so great. We didn't win but we still had so much fun! The bar got more crowded as it got closer to midnight. Fairhope has bands that play downtown and the businesses all set up kind of a tailgate situation and then they have a ball drop. When it was close to midnight we walked over to the main street to countdown and watch the ball drop. And of course get our New Year's kiss in!
Beginning of the night. Still hopeful for our Bulldogs.
Enjoying some of the props the establishment was providing.
A group shot. We tailgated every weekend of this football season with Jay and Margaret so it was only appropriate that we watch our Bowl game with them!
Getting ready to watch the ball drop. You can see it in the background back there.
So we watched the ball drop, gave each other big kisses and headed home. We were home by 12:30 AM and it was perfect. New Year's Eve is not one of my favorite holidays but this year it was tons of fun! A great way to start 2015!
