UAB vs Troy

saturday, the blazers played troy at legion field and kick off was at 3:00pm. we arrived at the tailgate around 1:00pm where we met up with friends and family. upon arrival, tita karmie showed the girls and cousin carson their surprise early christmas gifts...their very own pair of keens. abby got a purple pair while lyla got a lime green pair and carson's were black. the kiddos absolutely love them, and tita karmie also surprised lyla with a cute little skirt in which we quickly changed her into.

this tailgate was different than the usual ones that came before it. this time, everyone has decided to do a potluck theme inside of just a couple of people cooking and supplying the food. it was perfect. there was so much to pick at throughout the entire day, and the munchkins never went hungry. one thing is funny though, it was so hot that all the guys were shotgunning the kiddos juice boxes because they were too dehydrated for beer. seriously though, it was hot. c'mon fall, where the hell are ya!? nonetheless, it was a great outing with friends. here are some pics...lastly, we love our blazers no matter what, but we all know we suck at football...always have. and that's okay with us. because in all honesty, we pretty much go just to tailgate. ends up though, that UAB took home the "W" against Troy in a nail-biting game. Gooo Blazers!! here's a tweet just to sum it up...

RT @UABathletics: In a comeback for the ages, a last-second hail mary capped one of the largest football comeback wins in school history. UAB 34, Troy 33.
