Labor Day Weekend

Labor Day weekend is always so much fun. Our family always takes a trip to the lake and we celebrate my dad's birthday, which being on September 5th, always falls on or around Labor Day. We, also, usually go to the first Auburn game of the season. This year was no different. It was Charlie's first Auburn game. Now, if you know me and you know my family, you know that my family is big Auburn fans but my husband is a big Alabama fan. I honestly do not care. I feel I have the best of both worlds. I can cheer for both and no one can be upset with me. I have seen too many people act really ugly to each other over football. There are just too many bigger fish to fry than football. I'm sure it is all in fun but it does not come across that way. Anyway, back to the game.

Charlie was in awe of all the screaming people in orange. He did have on this really cute little outfit my friend Andi let us borrow. Unfortunately, in true baby fashion, he pooped all in it right before the game started. So much for that. Andi, if you are reading this, it all came out:).

So this was who we were really there to see. My niece, Mary Grace, is an Auburn cheerleader this year. We are so proud of her! We have a slogan in our family,"Family before Football". My husband and my son, the Alabama fans of my crew, wore their Auburn attire to the game in support of MG.

After the game, we went to the lake and celebrated my dad's birthday Sunday. My dad is my hero. Not because of his success or achievements but because he loves the Lord. God comes first then his family. I have no doubt of his love for the Lord and I feel truly blessed to be able to say that. I also know he loves us. He loves being with his family. I can look on his face, when we are all together, and just see that he would not want to be anywhere else. I love him so much!!! Thank you Jesus for giving me a godly father.

My brother and Charlie relaxing after a fun but busy weekend. I think Charlie wants to be like his uncle:). That would be ok with me.
