A few weekends ago the boys and I packed up our finest orange and blue gear and headed to Auburn, Alabama for the spring football game, women’s softball game, and some good ol’ family time with Mimi and Pops.Growing up I loved going to Auburn in the spring with my mom and dad. There was a different pace to the weekend that fall just doesn’t allow for. In the fall it’s all about the game and tailgating #turndownforwhat but in the spring you can slow things down a bit, walk the streets of downtown and enjoy the shops and restaurants.
Plus, this trip was extra special because it was the first time we were taking Brooks to Jordan-Hare Stadium to watch the Tigers play. Geoff and I were so excited to share one of our favorite traditions, as a family of three. 🧡
Friday night we had tickets to watch the women’s softball team take on the Vols then we headed back to our hotel room to get B settled and have a wine party with mom and dad. 💃🏼 Saturday’s weather was slightly less than desirable for outside activities but we came prepared in our raincoats and umbrellas. The university put on a fun little family fun zone before the game (seen more in the video I put together!) with an petting zoo and bouncy houses.
After some time exploring it was time for the main show. I was so excited y’all! I had my camera ready to watch B’s face light up with wonder as he entered the stadium. He even gave the ‘gate keepers’ his ticket to scan like a big boy. 😍
It was such a special weekend for us and so glad we got to spend it with my mom and dad. Auburn has always been such a special place for Geoff and me and we were (emotionally) excited to make new memories with our B!
Here’s a little collage of the weekend taken with my iPhone!
I hope y’all enjoyed reading our family trip to Auburn! I put together a little video of our weekend getaway to The Plains below!
Lemons to Love (and War Eagle)!
