A-Day!!! Roll Tide!!

We had a great weekend! A-day (the University of Alabama fotball scrimmage) was this past weekend and the weather was beautiful! We started out the morning at a tailgate...yes...for the our friend Bill's new law office downtown. He has done an amazing job restoring a historic building into his new office. We enjoyed visiting with he and Niccole and their new baby girl Sally. Then we headed over to the Ezell stadium house to visit with some friends. The picture below is of Jennifer Hitchner, me and Dee.

Then we headed down to the stadium for the scrimmage. We were lucky enough to be invited to sit in "The Zone" club level with our friends Liz and Leon. It was so nice to be able to go in and out of air conditioning! We watched the scrimmage and were excited about the progress our team has made during Spring practice. We had the number ONE recruiting class this year so we know that two years from now we will be in the running for a national championship...we hope! :-) One thing I love about Alabama football...there were over 78, 000 fans in the stadium for a SCRIMMAGE!!! Last year we set the national record at 92, 000 and they had to close the gates when the stadium reached capacity. Gotta love the south!!

Of course we managed to pick up some goodies for the kids (that still seems so weird to in... plural!). A cute little bubble for Lydia and a big boy windsuit for Anderson! I can't wait to see them both dressed to support the team!!
