On the Plains

We took a weekend trip to Auburn back in the end of February. We had been wanting to go to a basketball game all season and found a weekend where there was a basketball game and the first home baseball game. So we headed down and spent a beautiful Saturday afternoon at the baseball park. It was the first weekend of spring like weather. I was so thankful we got to spend so much time outdoors.

Then we walked over the the coliseum for a basketball game. I am glad we got to go since it was the last season in the coliseum. Auburn was actually good in basketball when we were there. We got student season tickets for a few years and enjoyed many good games in the coliseum.

We were able to bring Maggie with us on the trip. Apparently the conference center allows your pets to stay with you, which was fun. At night we took walks around campus.

Picnic lunch

We ended the weekend with a nice picnic lunch in one of the fields. My favorite all time favorite Auburn menu item: Turkey roll up, sweet potato chips, and a side of honey mustard. It was a wonderful relaxing weekend just spending time together. We were so thankful to finally have spring like weather and be able to spend so much time outdoors. Hopefully we can make it back for one more overnight trip and baseball game before peanut comes.

Let it snow

Yes, I am majorly behind in blogging. Honestly this is the last thing I feel like doing when I get home from work. So, we had some snow back in February. We had a horribly cold winter with lots of freezing weather and snow threats. I am not a big fan of the winter months. I do not like winter clothes, coats, and being cold just are not fun to me. We finally had some snow stick. Thank goodness we got out of school early so that we could get outside and play in the snow. We have had Ryan's childhood sled in our attic since we got married and we finally got to use it. We have a nice little hill on our front yard that Ryan and Maggie had fun sledding down. After almost running into the mailbox, I decided one trip down the hill was enough for me.
