This weekend we drove to the LBK. I love going to Lubbock and visiting my sweet Nana, stopping by Texas Tech campus, tailgating, the football game, cooler weather, and fun times with my family. This year Ally and I were fortunate to ride up with the Warrens and these two cuties had a blast in the car. Apparently all you need is a watch and a pair of sunglasses for hours of entertainment.
After lunch they were out. Lila and Ally both had their puppy and blanket the whole way.
Nana has some great toys at her house. Ally especially loved the piano, matador, and mini trampoline. Thank you Nana for hosting us this weekend!
Around 9:30 my little man made it. It is so different this year having to factor in Friday school. I have to remind myself constantly that Ryan can't leave town until 3:30. He rode up with Honey and GP and Mark followed soon after. Nana was very happy to see her oldest great-grandchild.
The next day was Game day and my crazy brother-in-laws put on a great pre-game tailgate. Mark and the boys played a mean game of red-neck golf and Ryan and III were fascinated by the smoker. (click on this pic to see the pig they cooked...)
The Will Rogers statue is wrapped in Red every game day and the kids thought it was way cool.
Some future RAIDERS! I remember taking pictures like this growing up and I cannot believe that now I have children taking the same shot. Amazing.
We have a few running jokes of comments made during TTU games. Mom has the famous,"Do something Spectacular Tech!" and Dad's, "We were there!" and I think a new phrase can be added to this list. "For 33 years I have been cheering on the Raiders, I love' em!"-he he. (I realize that probaby doesn't sound funny to anyone other than my sista Caryn.)
A little pretend football on campus
These two are very funny when they're together. Constant smiles.
If only Tech had won it would have been the perfect weekend. Thanks again Nana, we love you very much and we can't wait to see you again soon.
