This was Catherine Ellis's second trip to Tuscaloosa (the first was for Coco's wedding in March), but her first Alabama tailgating experience! She had a blast! We were fortunate enough to join the infamous Reamey tailgate on the Quad and Catherine Ellis had just as much as we did people watching!
David has been to a couple of games - but I've not been since the Auburn Alabama game back in November of 2008 - the stadium has expanded and is beautiful - they've done a great job! David was excited to finally see the new south end zone and of course we had to take Catherine Ellis on the Walk of Champions - she was in awe of the stadium - certainly the biggest building she's probably seen in her short life!

Now who is this man?
Catherine Ellis and Aunt Coco - oh how CE loves her Coco!
The other fabulous part about trips to Tuscaloosa are the wonderful friends that I have that either live there or visit during football season - what a joy it was to meet up with Erica, Corrie, and Brandi - all fabulous women that I love dearly!
Brandi, Me, Erica and Corrie - thanks Dave Crutchfield for the awesome pic!
And too soon it was time for the girls and Daddy to head in to the game. Catherine Ellis was partied out and you all know Tuscaloosa is good for a big party! Catherine Ellis and I headed back to Birmingham while Daddy cheered on the Tide - what a fun weekend indeed!
One beat baby!
