Wrapping Up Miami in January: Game Day

Last Miami post!  Game day!

It was fun seeing all the Bama fans in Miami.  It felt like Tuscaloosa.  But with palm trees. :)

It's kinda crazy that M has traveled to every bowl city with Bama since she was born (as young as three weeks old - which makes us her daddy crazy). She's been to bowl cities as close as New Orleans and as far away as Pasadena (CA).  Of the five trips, three resulted in a national championship.  She even attended last year's game. I'm pretty sure when I was four years old, my biggest trip was to the zoo.  Or maybe the beach.

Anyhoo, I am so glad that, through my sister- and parents-in-law, M has gotten to experience such exciting history.  She can always look back and say, "I was there!"

M, my mom, and I watched the game from the hotel room, but my husband, his parents and sister were there:

They've taken a picture like this for every recent game national championship game.  That's kinda cool.  

DK w/one of the players (Cooper) and a his new favorite hat.

The game ended late, which means they got back late.  There was a post-game celebration at the hotel that I was too exhausted to get out of bed to attend (I told y'all I'm no good after midnight)...but mama didn't mind.

Which was great since she ran into this guy: 

Speaking of which, there were a couple of other faces we spotted at the hotel that week:  Dick Vitale, Braylon Edwards, Sean Kingston, and Scottie Pippen.  Odd mix, huh?

Anyhoo, this wraps up the trip, folks.  We had a great time.  Other highlights from the trip include M's plane ride.  She's flown several times, but I guess it fascinates her more as she gets older. It was fun watching her pure excitement over all the planes at the airport.

And just spending time with fam and friends was wonderful.  We're really blessed.

Thanks for re-living the trip with me!  Be back soon!
