you won't read this for a day or two but as i type, my beloved tigers are working on pulling a win over ole miss. go big blue! jay and i took the girls to auburn last weekend for the girls' annual trip to the plains. it was mallory's first opportunity to visit mom and dad's alma mater; i think she had a good time. this morning hadley asked when we were leaving for "the big game" and audrey randomly announced at breakfast that it is "game day"...i think they had a good time!
the weekend didn't start out so well though. we headed for montgomery on friday afternoon so we could meet our dear friends alex and susan and their boys for dinner...traffic had another plan and we ended up at a stand still on hwy 80 just before i 65 and that added a solid 45 minutes, or an hour, to our drive time and we missed dinner. but i took this picture when i had climbed in the back seat to give mallory (barely visible in that mirror to the right) her bottle.
saturday was great fun but also hot as blue blazes! i don't really care for day games; our seats are in the sun all day and it is just hot, hot, hot. we did manage to stay through the 3rd quarter. i'd say that is impressive even if much of it was spent in the "cool zone".
hadley learned the star spangled banner at school and was so very excited to sing along; it was precious.

hadley is still DEATHLY afraid of the most wonderful mascot in the known world...audrey got a little scared but managed to take part in the photo and mallory seemed to enjoy aubie's whiskers! as much as i enjoy taking those sweet girls to a game, i am looking forward to going back in a few weeks and actually watching the game.
