Flashback to Tuesday of this past week. Our friends met up for lunch at our restaurant and they pow wowed with John and realized that if we wanted to go to a Hog's game together at all this season then this Saturday was our one and only shot. I honestly didn't think we'd be able to go. We needed someone to watch our little friends for about 15 hours to really make it worth it. With doubt in my voice, I told John and Court that I would try to find childcare.
Lo and behold, I found someone who was thrilled at the chance to spend the day with our kids. (At least, that is what she told me. And, she did seem to have a great day with them, though there were some down moments as well. Bless her heart.)
Saturday morning, we set out for Fayetteville. John brought us all CFA breakfast and a cooler full of drinks which he served before we set off. He really does know how to travel. Love him.
Basically, the whole day was dreamy. We did lunch at a Thai place (Taste of Thai) we had all enjoyed in college.
We headed to the game, and our seats were 10 rows up on the 50 yard line. It was so much fun to be so close to the action!
It was a hot day, and we were all little sweat balls - especially during the first half. However, during the second half, we got some shade and relief. And funnel cake, which makes everything even better.
The woman next to me was apologizing for her son almost knocking over my drink, and I said that it was fine - I have four kids and totally understand. She made my day by acting shocked at this fact and going on to say that she thought we must have just graduated college. It's probably because she only saw me with the sunglasses, but I will still take the compliment.
We had so much fun, really and truly. We've known the Heads about 7 years now, and the friendship just gets better and better. There were too many laughs to count. Dinner was at another favorite restaurant - Noodles. We also did a walking tour of campus around dusk which was a fun treat. It was neat to get a better understanding of their college experience and see more of the U of A. We went to school only 30 minutes away, but it might as well have been another planet for how different it was.
We've become Hogs fans, because when you live in our state, it really is the only and best option. Everyone is Hog wild, and it is quite fun to be all united in something as Arkansans. Woo Pig Sooie! Getting completely out of daily life and routine was a wonderful break from reality - thanks for sharing in the fun, Adam and Court!
