War Eagle!!!!

If you know anything about me, you know that I adore everything Auburn University. One day I will become an Auburn alumni. It may be when I'm 90, but hey if the old noodle is still working by then so be it. At least I can have "Auburn Alumni" put on my headstone. lol.

Anyway, I took my girls down to the Vandy game on Sat. to tailgate. We don't go into the games because it gets too loud for Pooh. Their friends-kinda-cousins weren 't down there so it was a little boring for them at first, but things got better. We walked around a little before the football game and went in to see the baseball team practicing. That is until Pooh started climbing over seats and hanging on the bars. Urggghhhhh! So we went back across the street to the RV.

Eventually, Pooh went inside and stayed awhile. Sunshine had kept asking me if we could go back and watch the baseball team. So I asked some of our family to keep an eye on Pooh while I took Sunshine back over to the park. The only other people there were the players' parents. One batter hit a foul ball into the stands. Sunshine asked if she could go get it. I told her to let the player who was in the stands get it. Then when another foul ball hit the other side of the stands, a pitcher's mom(Ms. Emily), got up. Well lo and behold, she had gone to get the ball for Sunshine. Sunny was so amazed. Honestly, so was I. She was so proud of that ball. Then after practice, Ms. Emily took us down to where the players come out. She made sure all, but I think two, signed Sunny's ball. She thought it was the coolest thing EVER!!! By the way, I believe my child has a huge crush on Paul Burnside now. lol.

I remember before the park was built, waiting for the guys to come out so we could all go home, eat, take naps, then get ready to go out. (Some of my friends dated some of the players. One eventually married one of them.) Anyway, watching the little kids run up to them asking for their autographs was so touching. I looked forward to the day when I could do the same with my child. Well, one of my dreams came true on Saturday. Thank you so very much Ms. Emily. We look forward to seeing you this spring. Sunshine is so very excited about baseball season now.

As for Pooh, she was Princess of the Day while we were gone. lol. A little later her friend in the next RV came out of the game. So they got to play for awhile. That made the day all better.

And to end the day on campus, Kodi Burns (The QB for all those who don't know.) was coming down past the RV. Well, I asked my cousin who it was because he looked so familiar. It took Jordan a minute but then he kinda gasp and said, "That's Cody Burns!" So off he and his wife, Brandi, and Sunshine go to meet him and get Brandi and Sunny's shirts signed. I think Jordan was more excited about it than the girls were.

After the game we went back to Mr. Rick and Ms.Jamie's. The girls adore them. And Sunshine thought their big lab, Ally, was the sweetest dog ever. She's been talking about her ever since. Which says a lot since it is a big dog and she's terrified of large dogs. This is because of a German Shepard trying to attack her when she was 2. Anyway, thank you for your hospitality Mr. Rick and Ms. Jamie.
