This past weekend was a super fun one. Earlier in the week I heard from Annie and she wanted to bring her friend Caroline to the football game this weekend because she went to a small school and had never been to an SEC game. And this weekend's game happened to be a huge one. We were playing LSU and were already 2-0. So this would be the moment where we truly found out how our Bulldogs were going to be this season.
The game was a 6 o clock kick off so sadly we had to get a sitter for Walker. We weren't even sure how Elle would do for the game. So we all went to the tailgate and spent the day there before we met the sitter on campus to give Walker to her. The tailgate was super hot. It was just a hot day. So it wasn't as much fun as the game before. Hopefully the weather will cool down for the next one. But Annie was able to take Caroline to the Dawg Walk and they took Elle to the jumpies. We had plenty of food and drink so we just made the best of the hot weather. So at 5 or so we met the sitter and she brought Walker home and gave him a bath, gave him dinner and he went to bed at a reasonable hour.
Kenny took Walker to Starbucks one morning and Walker was so excited because Daddy got him a chocolate crescent and they shared that together. Just wanted to include the pictures.
"Horsing" around Saturday morning since we didn't have to rush to the tailgate.

we are so happy to have him with us!

Walking with Daddy to meet Holly. We were so sad to he couldn't stay and he even asked us if we were walking to the game as we were walking. Then he bawled when he realized he was leaving. I might of bawled too. It was really sad and Kenny and I have said we may not be able to do it again.
So the game. As I mentioned this was a huge game. Obviously we always want to beat LSU. We got in early so Caroline could see some of the pregame stuff and kickoff and it was so loud. Elle got a little overwhelmed and cried some. She was saying she wanted to go home. We had given her the option to go home with the sitter and Walker and she had said no. So we nicely had to tell her that we weren't leaving the game. We helped her feel better and also put some headphones on her which helped and let her play a game on a phone for a little while. That seemed to help. After a while she got caught up in the energy of it all because it was so exciting and her caffeine from the coke she drank kicked in and she was cheering and ringing her cowbell right along with us. The Bulldogs were amazing! We came out on fire and trounced all over LSU. We won the game 37-7. We stayed until the very end and had the best time! The game and all the fun and of course the win made up for the hot tailgate!
Watching kickoff and pregame stuff with Daddy. Already feeling a little nervous.
Caroline loved ringing the cowbell.
I'll give it to Elle. It really was very loud. I offered her some earplugs I had but she
turned them down. Can't imagine why.
During halftime Elle and I saw some kids eating pizza and it looked so good. We talked Kenny into trying to find some and it took quite a while. We felt bad and were so happy when he returned and it was so so so good!
Sister time! Looking a little sweaty and tired but woo hoo!

Walking out and pumped about our huge win!
