We took Addison to her very first Auburn experience on Saturday for the Auburn A-Day game. We knew it may or may not be a challenge depending on how she decided to act that day but we wanted to give it a try so we did. Laura, Keith and the kids all came as well and we had a great day together as a family. We started by going to Kinnucans in Auburn to see Tommy Trott and Ben Tate and let the kids take pics with them and get autographs. They were both so nice and generous with their time. Then, we headed to find a parking place. We were afraid that would be a challenege but we actually got a great parking place that had a grassy area with shade for our picnic. We then headed to the practice field so the kids could enjoy the inflatables for a while before eating. We had a picnic in the shade and the weather was phenominal. We sat on blankets and in chairs and just laughed and had the best time. After lunch, we packed up and headed to the new Auburn Basketball Arena to take a tour and I must say, it is wonderful!! We took lots of pics so daddy could see it since he and mama could not be there. We then proceeded to the stadium to get a seat with about 20-30 minutes until kick-off. The kids were a little tired at this point but held up well throughout the day. We then left and went to get yogurt at a new place in Auburn called Tutti Fruiti......it was FABULOUS!!! The best yogurt I have ever had....ever!! The kids loved the refreshment and so did the adults. After a little shopping at J&M, we headed home. I knew for certain that Addison would fall asleep on the drive home, but she didn't. However, she slept wonderfully that night. Addison was an angel all day and had a blast watching Aubie during the game......that was all she was interested in was Aubie......and the cheerleaders. We had the best time and I cherish ever second of ever minute we have like that as a family. Those memories are what life is all about!!
