Weagle, Weagle

Today was such a fun day! We took Adair to Auburn for the Homecoming game and she couldn't have loved it more. Every Saturday, she "watches" football with Daddy, so all week long, she talked about going to the football game on Saturday...she was so excited. So excited, in fact, that the two hour drive to Auburn was torture for her. If she asked, "are we at the football game yet" once, she asked 1,000 times! She couldn't contain herself, she couldn't wait to get there.

She was so worked up about the game, that I was a little bit afraid she would be let down when we actually got there. Oh, no! She was thrilled. She LOVED it, all of it! She really got into the cheering, the "waaaaarrrr eagle, hey" during kickoff and the wave. And she LOVED the band, much to Daddy's dismay, she loved it more than the football game. She paid such close attention to them that she had to know where their hats were when they were sitting in the stands. And even more than the band, she LOVED seeing Aubie live and in person. I think if we could have gotten close enough to hug him, her day would have been made perfect. Obsessed might be a good way to put it..."Mommy, where is Aubie?"..."Aubie (yelling) come over here!"

After the game (okay, really after was Homecoming, after all), we walked over to Toomer's Corner for her to witness the long standing tradition of rolling the trees with toilet paper when Auburn wins the game. She was in awe and thought that toilet paper in the trees was so awesome.

On the way home, Hank taught Adair the bodda getta cheer. Which she thought was a hilarious combination of words. Needless to say, we laughed the whole way home as she tried to pronounce the cheer.

Bodda getta, bodda getta, bodda getta, bah
Rah, rah, rah; Siss, boom, bah
Weagle, weagle, waaaarrr eagle
Kick in the shin big blue

(Note: words have been changed to those appropriate for a two-year-old.)

It was a perfect day! A little on the chilly side, weather wise, but all-in-all a perfect day in one of our favorite places. I hope you enjoy a few pictures from our road trip to Daddy's alma mater.
