Since Kristin and Mark moved up north, we had to find a new tailgating spot. We used to be a stone's throw away from the stadium, so no matter where we decided to go, it was definitely not going to be anywhere near as close. We ended up over by the Accounting School (our old stomping grounds!) with some of our Atlanta friends, and it was actually really nice to walk through campus and pass other tailgaters as we headed to the game.
|the Turlington Turd! hadn't seen this thing in years.|
|look at all that orange & blue!|
We bit the bullet this year and finally bought season tickets. We got to the game reallllly early so we could meet our neighbors and watch all of the pre-game warmups. We were surprised how many people were there an hour before kickoff, but we also couldn't believe how many empty seats there were once everyone was in the stadium.
|love the new Gator head logo on the 50-yard line|
|heeeere come the Gators!|
|love our seats!|
|halftime visitors :)|
|love this girl!|
|mission accomplished! we finally saw a win at home|
We spent the rest of the weekend souvenir-shopping and bar-hopping, and hit some of our old favorite spots: Burrito Brothers, Gator's Dockside, Salty Dog, Swamp, and Las Margaritas. Before we left town on Monday, we stopped by the stadium one last time and took Molly for a short walk around campus. Obviously, she loved it.
|found my brick! always a fun game.|
|one of our most favorite places on Earth|
It was such a great weekend to be back in Gainesville! Go Gators!!
