Rewind: 2013 BU HC

REWIND...

To October... 

for Baylor Homecoming...

aka ...

third most sacred Holiday...

Behind Christmas...

And Easter, naturally!

We had a super fun time and enjoyed our time with friends and family! It always feels good to come home!

This year we were fortunate enough to attend the Bonfire on Friday... the Parade, Saturday... do some tailgating before the game and then most of us got to go to the game too! It was a full weekend of Baylor Proud! And we could NOT be more proud of our Bears this season. It's always ben fun to be a Baylor Bear, because I really do believe there is not another school quite like it, but when you have a winning football team, it's a REALLY FUN time to be a Baylor Bear. It brings us all together under one HUGE roof of excitement and joy abounds!!

Saturday morning the parade was C-O-L-D!! Like SOOOO cold! And I always try to do my best and be prepared, but when you hear 50 degrees you think one thing and then when you feel 50 degrees you think quite another... and we were definitely in the quite another category! It was our first true cold snap and our blood was a little thin, but we enjoyed the festivities nonetheless!

First up... the Golden Wave Marching Band... soft spot... big heart... tear! :)



Caden insisted on wearing his helmet most of the weekend which in hindsight probably kept him really warm... :)


The crew... you'll notice Kaki is more concerned about how many donut holes she has left than the parade... donut holes are GOOD!! Thanks Nana and Bop!


And here they come... 

Here come the Bears... bah, bah! Here come the Bears... bum, bum!


And the Bruiser Balloon... a crowd favorite!


And Dr. Packard... and his lovely wife... he was one of my professors and my Dad had him too... he's old! (Happy Birthday Albi... 58!! What, what!!)


Caden in his spot...


And Kaki in hers... all bundled up!!


Selfie.... eek... not our best... but good enough! :)


Fam pic... we're growing!!!


After the parade we usually walk through campus, get a Dr. Pepper float and the like, but this year we decided to head home and thaw out... we needed it if we were going to be up for some tailgating later that afternoon!

And as luck, fate and the Lord would have it... it warmed up to be a beautiful day! Couldn't have ask for a better one!! We had homemade Gut-Paks in the backyard and watched some football on Nana and Bop's fancy new porch TV and had a fun time relaxing!

Then is was up and out and to the stadium for some tailgating!! This girl was pumped!!


And it goes without saying that this boy was too!!


Caden loves playing "bean bags," but Kaki seems to enjoy the "slide" functionality more than anything...


Look at that handsome hunk of a hubby tossing that bag... such skill!

So Kaki... likes to slide... down, down, down...


Then crash on the grass... 


And then do it all over again...


She is a NUT!! Our comic relief ALWAYS!!


That girl!!


Determined... 


She was annoying the ever loving tar out of her brother who kept saying she was IN THE WAY!! Welcome to life with a little sister, dude!! Welcome!


Thankfully, before C could level K with a well-formed tackle it was time for March of the Bears... HEY! OH!! We pumped!!


CYRIL!!!


BRYCE!!


HANDS OUT...


Still rockin' the gold helmet... 


Cuite Coach...


My cuties...


ART!!!! COACH!!! 


LA-CHE!!!!! Not to be confused with the spanish word for milk... Leche!! Ahem!


It's Bruiser... 


Well, we won... duh! :) It was another fun victory for the Bears! We could totally get used to this being good stuff... it's SUPER FUN!!! But we want to be sure and keep our heads about us... it wasn't that long ago when we remember being beat by the same margin we are now beating teams! We get it! 

Sunday morning before hitting the road after a fun weekend in the Wac... we attempted some cousins pumpkin pics... right...

Having three on the move is tough... especially a cute boy in a puffy vest... he's always out on an adventure!!










Stinkers!! Maybe next year!!! :)

Thanks for a fun weekend in Waco, Baylor!! And Nana and Bop! Until next time...

HEEEEEEEEEEY Sic 'em Homecoming!!!
