Wooo Pig Sooie!

We took a short weekend trip to Fayetteville to celebrate Stacy!  My parents came to out house on Wednesday and Thursday and we all drove over on Friday afternoon to meet up with Stacy. She was in town for their 20 year golf program reunion and for the Hall of Honor dinner where she was being inducted and honored. 

All of us but Cate went to the dinner. We think there were probably 600 people attenting the dinner to honor the 9 athletes. 

Cole did an awesome job at dinner and made it through the entire thing eve though he didn't like the food served. He did have rolls and cake!
They showed a video of each honoree and then each of them gave a short speech about their time at the University of Arkansas. Stacy had the best speech, of course, and she was the only female of the two inducted that was there to accept the award.  So many people wanted to talk to her and take pictures with her. We are so proud of her! It was cool to see her video of all her accomplishments and to remember how far she's come since she was in college. 

The next day, we went to the Arkansas football game. It was a little rainy in the morning, but by the time we went to tailgate it was pretty much clearing up. We ate lunch with all the girls in town for the golf reunion. Cole just had the best time hanging out with Stace!
Cate did great too!  She missed her afternoon nap, but was not very fussy and loved watching everything going on around her. 
The tailgate was outside of Barnhill Arena, which used to be the old basketball arena, but now houses most of the women's athletics offices and volleyball court. We went inside to check it out and take a few pictures. 

We had to take a picture of this!  She's kind of a big deal! :)
We headed into the stadium for the 3:00 kick off. Stacy's college coach had arranged an awesome suite for us to hang out it and watch the game. It was at the center of the south end zone. Pretty much the best view of the game!  It wa awesome!

The suite was the perfect set up to watch a game with two little kids!  Snacks, space, family and friends around. The Razorbacks scored tons of points, so Cole got to do a lot of "Wooo Pig Sooie!" He had it down!  Here are a few other pictures from the game. 

It all went by too fast, and everyone was on their way on Sunday morning. We had breakfast with my parents an got to see Stacy before she left for the airport though. It was such a special weekend, and we were so glad to be a part of it!
