Baylor Homecoming

We had such a fun Saturday at Baylor University. I have been attending Baylor Homecoming since I was a little girl. Green and gold just flows through my blood. This is hard for my Texas Longhorn to the core husband to understand. I finally was able to drag him to BU Homecoming for only the second time since we met. He was a trooper and even wore a green shirt, but he said that was as close as he could get. As we arrived on campus my heart began to swell, full of happiness. When I am there I feel like I am "home", sounds silly, but true. Now that we have a child (and hopefully more to come), attending BU Homecoming will have to become a regular occurrence, that I hope Adam will eventually embrace. As an alumni, there's nothing like going back to BU with your lil' bear in tow. I enjoyed showing off my baby to friends and even family members that had not met him yet.

Michael watching the bears at the bear pit. He got a kick out of watching them and they were very active. Michael gave them his best "ROAR!" Too cute, wish I had it on video.

Baylor Friends!

We went to a fall festival at a local church. They had "trunk or treating" where the church member volunteers decorated the back of their SUV's or car trunks and you walked around to each to get candy. There was also a hay ride (minus the hay due to the drought), which Michael enjoyed. Other activities were inflatable jump houses/slides, a mechanical bull ride, free food (hot dogs and popcorn) and fun people/costume watching (Michael's favorite of the evening) and fun music. Thankfully the mosquitoes were not too bad last night.
