This weekend we traveled to Oxford, Mississippi with The Dixon’s, my parents, and my brother. This makes the third year that we’ve gotten together with the Dixon’s for the Ole Miss/Alabama game and this year was, I’d say, the best so far. Maybe it was because we had two adorable little girls to help us celebrate or that we had so much family in town, I don’t know, but despite the rain and cold we had a really great time!
We left early Friday morning because the guys were going to play golf in the afternoon. That turned out to be such a blessing because we got to drive almost the entire way without rain. We heard that some areas that we drove through even had tornado’s later Friday afternoon. The rain did start coming down not long after we arrived in town though so the guys golf outing was cancelled but that allowed us to have an afternoon together and gave Kelly and I some reinforcements so that we could leave to get groceries for The Grove.
Tripp has a cousin who rents out her house in Oxford for game weekends and we were lucky enough to get the house this weekend. It was a dream come true! With two little girls it was so nice to not have to have them holed up in a hotel room all weekend. We got to hang out as a large group and Caroline got to run around and have fun throughout the house. It also allowed us to do all the prep work for The Grove and gave us the ability to eat at home each night instead of battling the crowds with two children.
On Saturday it was a cold and was raining off and on but we battled some traffic (and a very stubborn person in an Escalade that almost gave all of us blood pressure problems!) and made it to The Grove in one piece. And that’s where my pictures start!
