Going to California on A Big Jet Plane

Well let me re-phrase that.  It should actually read went to California on a big jet plane...and it should also  specify that Stephen was the one doing the going, not me.  That's right.  Three weeks ago Stephen packed up and headed to Pasadena for the BCS National Championship.  I had promised my blogger friend Amanda that I would post pictures, because she too is a Alabama fanatic, but I hadn't gotten around to it.  Better late than never. 

As a little back story...Stephen could possibly be one of the biggest Alabama fans of all time.  (In fact he is reading over my shoulder right now to ensure that I adequately describe his level of fanatasim...otherwise known as checking my grammar and spelling.)  I on the other hand was raised a Gator fan.  My mom went there, my dad went to medical school there, my little brother goes my Florida ties run deep.  I grew up going to all the games.  I went to a small private univeristy that was not a football power house by any stretch of the imagination, so I had always kept my Florida ties...until I met my husband.  I am now a converted fanatic and love AL football.  We have had season tickets for the past four years and we love going to games.  We both are just huge college football fans and it is something that we really enjoy together.  I guess it comes along with the territory of being born and raised in the south.

Anyhow, back to the real story.   Stephen had an awesome time and went with a big group of friends.  Perron and I got to stay home for the coldest weekend since the 1980s and have some mother son bonding time.  We did great together, but we were really excited to have Daddy home.  If you will recall, that was the weekend of no sleeping, no napping, and a trip to the pediatrician. 

Getting into the game

Remember the Rose Bowl We'll Win

Trying to get a picture in front of the Rose the TX team is driving in.

I asked for a picture of the Game Day crew hoping
for a picture of Herbstreit and Stephen comes home with a picture of Lee Corso

A happy and victorious bunch!
