Swat them Yellow Jackets

Last Monday was a day most Clemsonites will never forget. After 9 1/2 years of coaching Tommy Bowden was let go. It's sad that he lost his job but it needed to happen, too much talent being wasted. Needless to say, Mike and I were excited to see what our new coach, Dabo Swinney, could do with our guys. The players were pumped and gave it their all but Georgia Tech still pulled out a win. It was an exciting game though. We were on the 50 yard line 4 rows up! We had a blast watching the game so close and tailgating afterwards. GO TIGERS!

Riley's 3rd Birthday

Today was Riley's 3rd birthday!! I remember so vividly the day Mike & I bought her. We immediately knew she was the one for us. She was so mellow and walked right up to us and wanted to play. She was so adorable. I remember her clumsily running right at my heels. We have had so much fun with her. She loves to play fetch. Watch out though, cause if you throw for her once she will never let you stop. She also cannot get enough of the water. She is the only dog who I've seen dunk only her head under the water for up to 15 seconds desperately looking for her stick that was just thrown. Mike will sometimes mess with her and instead of throwing sticks he will throw rocks. He is so mean.;) Poor Riley doesn't even stand a chance. She is full of energy and is the sweetest most loyal dog ever. I love you girl!!! Thanks for being so sweet!!

Today, to celebrate, we took a family outing to downtown Greenville. We walked all over Reedy River Falls Park and then walked trough downtown to a doggy cafe to get Riley a birthday treat.

We even got some work done. They have free wi-fi.  I think this may be our new office! 

Professional Utah Pictures

We finally got our professional pictures from Utah back. We went up to the Wasatch Golf Course and the setting couldn't have been more beautiful and peaceful. We saw so many deer and wildlife. Everyone was dreading pictures but I'm so glad we did it. I love my family and feel so blessed that we are all so close.

Here are some last random pictures of our trip. 
Uncle Rand was so sweet with Halle. Can't wait for you teach her all about the outdoors.

We had girls night at Camille's house one night. It was great catching up. Four of us are in education so it was fun talking teacher talk. Halle wasn't able to stay up late to meet everyone so Lacey, Camille, and Maylie came over the next day to say hey. I really miss my girls!  

Halle was fascinated with the ducks at the Homestead. 
Chandra surprised us with a visit. It was so fun seeing her and playing with her adorable boys.
Rand gave Blair and I a very vague idea of where he and David would be fly fishing all day. Maybe we should have listened a bit more. We set off on our wild goose chase looking for them and it turned out to be really fun. Mike got to see the prettiest part of the Provo River and we also got to pet and feed some horses. Afterwards we stopped for pizza in Midway and got to say goodbye to David before he left for the airport.

We headed to the river for a very relaxing hike. Blair and I walked up the river and it was freezing! Later I found out that my mom was dipping Halle into the ice cold river! Surprisingly she thought it was refreshing. She loves the nature.
