We left last Saturday morning, about 10 minutes after 8am, and I was really proud of starting out on schedule! We drove to GG's house and enjoyed a wonderful lunch and some sweet family time, and then we headed to Tuscaloosa. We have been looking forward to introducing the girls to The University of Alabama campus since before they were born. We were so grateful for such a wonderful homecoming!
On the way to the Quad, the center of campus, we swung by the business building...HOME!
Unfortunately, Hubby didn't realize that he only captured half of Baby A's face in each of the pictures he took. Sigh. Guess we'll just have to go back!
The day was a little on the crisp side, but the trees and flowers were in bloom. It was gorgeous!!!
|My favorite picture!|
And they stopped to smell lots and lots of flowers!
In front of the President's Mansion...
More flowers in front of the main library...
|Love this close-up of B!|
A few months ago, my BFF emailed me a picture of a plaque on campus with Hubby's name, a credit for having started the women's soccer program. When we pulled up in front of the newly constructed Champions Plaza, we had no idea how HUGE it would be!!! WOW!!!
One more picture in Champions Plaza...love my Bama Belles!!!
|A sweet close-up of Baby A!|
The following morning, we headed to breakfast at another favorite hang-out, the Waysider. I remember the first time Janko took me there, after we'd been dating a few weeks. It's a place we always revisit on every single trip, so it was really special to finally introduce the girls.
|B gave her breakfast an enthusiastic "two thumbs up"!|
|For a brief time, this building served as the state capitol of Alabama.|
This picture was taken on the block before the City Cafe. I love the verbiage on the window..."Real Living"...yes, indeed!
Some of the posters on the walls date back more than 30 years...as do the waitresses!
Heading out after an amazing breakfast...
And I couldn't resist taking pictures of a couple of signs.
|Notice they open at 4am!!!|
