Caroline's 1st Clemson Game!

Several weekends ago Jay and I made the trek down to South Carolina for our annual College Friends reunion weekend. This year was different though because Miss Priss got to join in on all the fun.

Let me just tell you that I was pretty darn excited for her to experience her FIRST EVER football game {I am fully aware she won't remember it, but I will!}. It was a big "Caroline's First Milestone" for me because I love football {clemson football in particular} so much, mainly because of all the family memories that we made centered around football over the years. My sweet Daddy loved adored Clemson football, and I know he would have been thrilled to take Caroline to her first game, but I am pretty confident he had a front row seat looking down on our joy-filled weekend from heaven.

We rented a lake house for the weekend, and enjoyed lots of yummy food, went hiking, had the most perfect weather, and pulled off a Tiger Victory! It really was such a refreshing weekend. Just something about catching up and laughing with dear friends, and enjoying God's beauty in a place that we love that just makes things close to perfect.
On our way down to Clemson we stopped in Charlotte to meet precious 3 week old Baby Braston! Caroline wanted to get her hands on him so bad. It is always special when the three of us Roommates can get together.
This beauty LOVED her day outside hiking to Whitewater Falls. 
 {In case you're wondering, that is sweat on my shirt. HA! Not even going to try and deny it. I wore Caroline in her Ergo carrier the couple miles there and back, and it was hard work!}
 My stud of a husband. Man, I am blessed. 
They were doing search and rescue training at the falls while we were hiking... These helicopters were flying around the whole time. It was great hiking entertainment! 
The morning of the game was chilly, and the perfect excuse to wear her Clemson Hat from Rachel
 Caroline's first Tailgating experience! 
And C got to hang out with another friend Tillman! 
 Cheering for the Tigers with the Spanglers!
Death Valley on a perfect Fall day! 
Great Fall memories for our little Family and lots more fun {Adventure?} ahead at next years Clemson Game weekend when Caroline will be running all around!

{All pictures are thanks to my trusty iPhone, and our great friends Adam, Leigha, and Spangler! Jay and I decided keeping up with Caroline and all that involves was more than enough, and there was no need for a camera bag too! Thanks friends for great pictures of our girl!}

Pin It!
