We are back from our Notre Dame Football weekend!! We had a great time, but it went way too fast. That is always the case.....isn't it? I love going away, but why do I hate coming home.......or should I say, what I come home to......
LAUNDRY.....I am still digging out from under a huge mountain of it.......we all wore lots of layers to keep warm all weekend, which means LOTS and LOTS of clothes to wash....UGH!!
In addition, I have tons of pictures to go through, and just have not had the time to spend organizing and fixing them. I took a couple shots on Game Day, but most of what I have to go through was from the day prior. We spent Friday on campus walking around. We visited the bookstore and the basilica, then attended the pep rally Friday night.
Nick was in heaven the entire time we were there and was in total awe of the university. How could he not....it is such a beautiful campus. Both Pat and I told him he better start hitting the books a little harder if he has his eye on ND.
I will be doing another post in a day or two when I have a chance to sort things out, but for now, here are a few of my favs......
Nick showing off his "Fighting Irish" tattoo, while Pat and Sarah are packing the cooler in the background. You know, the cooler is one of the most important items on game day:)
Attempted to get my three ND fans together for a photo. Someone was not cooperative and this was as good as it was going to get.......
Nick showing off his new shirt........he could have gone HOG WILD in that bookstore. I definitely got a couple great ideas for Christmas.....little does he know that I can order anything he saw there online:)
The house that Pat's family rented was only a few blocks from campus so we could all walk to the stadium on game day, but the problem was bringing food and drinks along to tailgate in the parking lot.
Pat and his brother were determined to find/buy a parking pass from someone so that we could at least take one car stocked with all the goodies and then the rest of us could walk over.
My BIL worked it like no other and ended up scoring us a parking pass. We ended up just outside the stadium in section one......which was extra lucky for us. As you can see, Pat was loving every minute of our time out there getting primed for the game:) Not the best photo, but I had to include it. It was really the highlight of the day....especially since they lost the game:(
Just as we were getting ready to head into the stadium, Sarah decided she needed a nap in the back of the car. She snuggled up with her ND blanket and of course her Nuk, which we have yet to get rid of at naptime and bedtime, but that is a story for another post. Supposedly she is giving it to Santa on Christmas Eve....FINGERS CROSSED. Anyway, when we all looked over, we saw that she was surrounded by adult beverages......had to capture this one!!
Sarah did sleep for a good portion of the game....but she popped up in the fourth quarter for all the action and decided to cheer on the team!!
That is all I have for now. As I said, I will post the rest of our trip in a few days. I still have a lot of catching up to do around here. I will be back to blogging again in a day or two.........today is actually my birthday and I plan to spend it with my family:) I won't tell you how old.......let's just say that I am inching closer to the big 40.
