It's my favorite time of year. I love football season. I love our tailgate "family". I love getting to visit my baby brother in college. I love The University of Alabama. I loved my time there and I love going back to visit. I also love football. I love pee wee football, high school football and college football (I'll watch the NFL but I wouldn't say that I love it).
This year we had a new spot. My parents sold the house we'd been at for the previous 5 years and moved John into an apartment. We've never been in an apartment so we were a bit anxious at how it'd all work out. John's place isn't big by any means but I think we had enough room.
We drove through a monsoon and I just knew it was going to be raining the whole time but it didn't rain a drop once we got there. It cooled off a bit and actually turned out to be a nice day. Hope sat by me and John came over from the student section to join us. I am so thankful for my tickets but that climb to the top of the upper deck proved to be a bit more of a challenge than it has in previous seasons. I'm thinking its the extra 15lbs I'm carrying but it's so worth it.
All in all I think our first tailgate at the apartment was a success. I'm looking forward to the rest of the season.
