2012 Blazer Fanfest

saturday we headed down to UAB in preparation for a tailgate in tent city for the blazer fanfest spring football game at noon on the west campus field. luckily, the predicted rained held out for us as the kids enjoyed the inflatables, face painting, a balloon artist, food, and live music from "the beatlads" (a beatles tribute band). we all wore our game day green for the occasion as well as miss kitty (the stuffed animal that lyla got to bring home from school for the weekend. this is always a special treat for her class). we all had so much fun playing with friends. here are some pics...

after playing around on the inflatables at the tailgate, we all walked over to the football field where the spring game was being held. we stood on the sidelines and watched as the kids chased each other and had races down the long nearby soccer field. later, we ran into blaze for a quick picture as the game was slowly coming to an end. on our way out, the girls stopped by the presidential tailgate for a UAB football shaped sugar cookie for the ride home. all in all, it turned out to be a great event. go blazers, can't wait for our upcoming season with a new coach!!
