gooo blazers!!

saturday, we awoke to rain. that's okay though. nothing can stop a hardcore tailgater. so we get the girls ready in their matching uab cheerleader outfits and head out the door. football season is finally here along with uab's first home game. the blazers played rice and kickoff was at 3:00pm. we got to the tailgate around 1:00pm and enjoyed chatting with friends and playing with the kiddos in all of the wonderfully ginormous water puddles. when life hands you lemons, bring on the lemonade! it was pretty fun watching all the kids (both big and little). everyone was in shock at how much the girls have grown up in just over a year. especially little toshy. i think she stole some hearts that day.that last pic is of our dear friend, stinky, trying to intoxicate my sweet baby girl. he thought it was pretty funny that she went after his beer, but i can promise you that that sweet girl will never refuse something that is within grabbing distance. the gal has a mean grip too might i add. so we get most of the kids together and head to the blazerwalk. they loved watching the band, cheerleaders, golden girls, and of course, blaze himself. these are mostly family pictures...also, harper had his school bus there, and it was awesome. we piled all the kiddos inside and couldn't resist taking some pictures in the back of the bus.so we head inside the stadium to watch the game. the great thing about having kids is sneaking some booze in their lunchboxes. that's one place security doesn't care to check. game on. our blazers played surprisingly well, and we won with a score of 44-24. also, at halftime, tom was awarded "best tailgate of the week." damn skippy. i lurves me some football season. goooo blazers!!
