First Football Games

Fall has finally arrived and in the Burton house that means FOOTBALL! For those of you who don't know, Lee is a huge Carolina fan. Yes, we went to Clemson (and that's where we met so you think that would mean something, but his blood runs garnet and black and thus so does mine...and Tradd's and Jackson's.
Their first football game, however, was not of the Gamecock variety, but rather to see their Uncle Bryson at Presbyterian College. We packed up half the house and headed to Clinton, SC for the first game of the season August 26th. We tailgated with Mom, Dad, Mimi, Pops and Uncle Taylor before the game. The babies love to be outside, so tailgating is a treat for them. The atmosphere at PC on gameday does remind me a lot of Clemson on a MUCH smaller scale, but that adds to the charm. The field where we tailgate is dotted with hundred year old trees and is a stone's throw away from the stadium. During half time we usually mosey back to the car for a cold drink and a snack (you don't need a ticket to get back in here)...after the game we walk down on the field to give Bryson a sweaty hug. PC Football will certainly be a part of Tradd and Jackson's childhood.
They also went to their first Carolina game last weekend. We met up with our friends Cindy and Jacob (Aunt Cindy and Uncle Jacob to the boys!) and again had a great time. My plan was to tailgate with everyone and then bring the boys home when the game started and traffic died down...but Cindy ended up not going into the game and we sat out with the boys. It wasn't the same tailgate that I'm used to.....it was better.


We have teeth!

TEETH!!! We've been cutting these bad boys for two months now! Jackson's bottom two are in and sharp as razors...Tradd only has one. (I guess just because he was born first doesn't mean he'll do everything first!) The baby food is going Ok...sometimes they are more interested than others. They both know how to spit it out and have been practicing their aim. I have actually thought about wearing a bib myself because I get just a dirty as they do!
Lee and I just returned from a cruise on Monday the 11th. I guess you could call it a "business trip" because we went with Lee's work people, but I only heard them talk shop a few times. We had a great time - maybe a little too soon for me where the babies are concerned, but we both had our moments and talked about them constantly.
We had their six month pictures taken a few weeks ago and they are online at www.bridgetclarkephotography.com You will need to go into client galleries and find our last name. Our password is 08272006. Tell me what you think! Love to you all!
