Anna's First Georgia Game

We decided Anna was ready for her first Georgia game this season but decided that we needed to wait until the weather was a little cooler and there were a few factors that would make it successful.  Justin scored us some club level tickets with a parking pass that was very close to the stadium.  This meant not a lot of walking for little legs.  We also got lucky with the Mizzou game being scheduled at noon.  Even though this meant an early morning, Anna is usually the first one up anyway so...

My parents were going to come with us to the game since my Dad went to Mizzou but finding six tickets together for a reasonable price proved difficult.  They decided spending the day with Kyle would be just as fun.  And, a big thank you to them because not only did they keep Kyle but they clean out the garages!

So, as soon as we arrived in Athens we did a quick trip to the Pi Beta Phi house.  I rang the bell to get inside but no one answered (it was only 9:30).  We will try and go inside over Homecoming maybe.  I did get some pictures of Brice and Anna on the front porch though.

Then the boys were getting anxious to get to the Dawg Walk so we drove over to our parking spot.  We walked down to the student center and were just in time for the Redcoats to start playing and the cheerleaders to line up.  Anna became a little overwhelmed at this point with all the people and cheering and noise.  There were a few tears but she regained composure quickly.

 One of the ladies standing by us had a daughter on the dance team so she pulled her aside after the Dawg walk for a picture.
After that we went to the Bookstore to show Anna ALL the Georgia stuff.  She found herself a Georgia Hello Kitty and that was the highlight of her trip.  We then went into the stadium so Justin and Brice could watch the Dawgs warm up and get the kids some lunch.

We had so much fun despite the Dawgs loss....and Anna had fun with her pom pom and Hello Kitty.  So much fun that she slept the whole way home!

Anna is such a cutie! I'm so glad she had fun. I can't wait to bring Tripp and Camille to their first Georgia game in the future. They are both still a little young at this point, but I'd like to show Camille the Alpha Chi house as well. I ended up deciding to go Alpha Chi but I preffed Pi Beta Phi during rush in 2000. I really liked the girls there!
