blazers first home game!

last night, the UAB blazers hosted their first football game of the season at home versus Florida Atlantic (yeah, i've never heard of the school either...). kickoff was at 7:00pm, but we arrived early to tailgate like always. this year, the BFFs came along for the home opener as well since mitchelle is currently enrolled in classes there. say it with me, "GOOO BLAZERS!!" hehe. of course the other BFFs were there as well completing the tri-winkie perfection as we all walked over to blazer village. the girls and cousin carson jumped around in the bounce house and then later grabbed some hot dogs and chips at the tent. here are some pics...and why yes, YB is even wearing some game day green with aviator sunglasses and some pearls. i love that woman.soon it was time to walk into the stadium where the kiddos held hands the whole way. we met up with lola and pawpaw inside. we cheered and groaned as the blazers do what they do best...SUCK. **snicker, snicker** at least we can admit it. at the end of the night, we asked the girls what was their favorite part of the night. the mabster immediately replied, "going to walk with pawpaw and he got us some chocolate raisins." well of course it was. the man has the sweetest heart around and it was no surprise when he came back with a box for all the munchkins. thanks, pawpaw! overall, the blazers lost. we're quite use to this, but it certainly doesn't stop us from bleeding green and gold. here are some pics...
