The one with the Samford slaughter...

Well Faulkner opened it's season with a 62-0 loss to Samford University. As heartbreaking as the game was, we had a wonderful time!! Izzy and Adam decided to do the weekly tailgating ritual, so they headed to Birmingham around 10am (about 2 hours later than planned). Lindsey and I headed out about 10:30 to take Maddox to my parents house...the first time I left him for this long!!! I teared up a little, but got better! :) We had to stop for gas, and the gas station attendant didn't know ANYTHING about how to help me when the pump wouldn't go!!! He finally said just try another pump, and so we wen't to another station all together!! We got some gas and then were called by Izzy and told to get a power strip (#1 forgot item), and then got a little lecture about how late it was and the fact we were still in Montgomery. Thank you Lindsey for taking this call! :) We went to Wal-Mart, got the strip, and were on our way. When we got to Birmingham, we realized we needed a can opener to open the baked beans! (#2 forgot item) All was good until I started making the rotel dip and discovered I had forgotten the rotel cans at home!! (#3 forgot item) Big Thanks to Taylor, Neil, and Ashley for getting these items for us! After all that, the meal was on! We had a crowd all day, and had a blast. It feels like work to get all this together, but it is so much fun in the end! We can't wait until Huntingdon!!! Go Eagles! A few pics to share...

A small shot of the admissions/alumni tent with free drinks and chips...hey Joey! :)
A shot of our tents and the crazy people who wouldn't get out of the road...you know, we were threatned to have the police called on us because we were in the "road" of the parking lot!! :) Those Faulkner people are so rowdy!!
Some more views of our tents

Oh, this post takes me back to the first UK football game I attended with Joe after Carson was born. A friend watched him for me, and I was so eager to get back to him. I wound up showing his picture to the other people sitting around us at the game. Then when we picked him up, I had to fight the urge to jump out of the car to run to my friend's house when we got stuck at a traffic light on the way.

But those little times away are so good for moms to recharge and reconnect with Dad. And those happy reunions afterward are wonderful!

WOW! I finished undergrad at Samford, but grad school at Bama, so I have kind of quit following Samford football. That was a very high scoring game for the Bulldogs! Kinda like the time my freshman year when we Samford folk traveled down to the plains to play Auburn......
