Carolina Homecoming

On Saturday, we took the girls to Chapel Hill for the Carolina/Ga. Tech football game. It was also Homecoming. Our blood definitely runs Carolina blue and we're making sure the girls know it early on. It was very gray and rainy when we left Saturday morning, but by the time we were making our way into Chapel Hill, the sun started peeking through the clouds and it turned out to be a gorgeous day....perfect football weather. On the way there, David told Madeline that God was a Carolina fan....that's why the sky is (Carolina) blue!

Having three girls doesn't mean they only wear pink.
I think this shade of blue is just perfect on them!!

Our 'lil Tarheel! Isn't she adorable?? She did great at the game!
She caught a few naps and just took it all in.

This was Lydia's second football game this season.
She cheered the Heels on to a victory.

Madeline took this picture of us. I'm sure neither of us imagined 16 years ago (when we first met) that we would be bringing three little girls to ballgames and showing them the dorm we lived in, etc. etc. And I'm quite sure David never imagined himself pushing a stroller through Kenan Stadium with a "Max and Ruby" backpack flung over his shoulder!

Madeline was full of questions (as usual) about college. We showed her our dorm, the Pit, the libraries, the Student Stores, the Old Well and several other things around campus. After answering several of her questions, she told me, " I think I'll go to this college". Atta Girl!!

Every time we go back for a game, we realize how much things have buildings where parking lots used to be, high tech stuff everywhere you turn, college kids that keep looking younger and younger. But at the same time, things are still the same. David and I always get very nostalgic and recall memories of our college years. As we were riding back to the parking lot on the Tarheel Express, the hum and smell of the bus seemed all too familiar in just an instant. Oh, and the traffic!!! We rounded out our day with a visit to U-Mall and breakfast for dinner at Breadman's. It was fun to go "home" to Carolina!

Gina! I saw you at the game. It was after the game and we were walking down a path back towards our parking lot and I looked through the trees and saw you and your family! As soon as I saw you, you disappeared behind the trees so I couldn't say hey (it would have been more of a yell actually!). Anyways, what a great game! GO HEELS!
