A visit to Aggieland. . .

Well, we ventured back to Texas A&M on Sept. 18-19 to see a Big 12 football game for the first time in about 4-5 years. . .we haven't been back for a game since August has been playing high school football as he always had films to watch on Saturdays, so it was fun to be back. . . Todd, Georgia, Jordan (Georgia's fiancee)and I joined August and Jayton Lindley ( a senior engineering major from Mertzon) for all the weekend festivities. Since Jordan had never been to Texas A&M or to a Big 12 football game, we took him to all the famous sites.and sounds . .the campus, the George Bush Presidential Library, Free Birds (eating place), the bookstore and the ROTC "march in" and "fly by" before the game. . . The guys even squeezed in a Sat morning bike ride before it became too hot and humid.

The Texas A&M Aggies barely won the game against Utah State, but we had great seats and it was great fun just to be there again. . .It has been 28 years since Todd and I both graduated from there. . . no wonder those students all looked like they belong in Jr. High :). Special thanks to Randy and Susan Brooks for sharing their season tickets with us!

Hammin it up on the second deck of Kyle Field. . . Everyone is sporting their maroon and white!

Aggie Buddies. . .

August showed us how to make a giant burrito at "Free Birds". . our first trip there.

The famous Georgia Huckabee pose at the Bush Library. . .Notice that she had to stand on a post just to make it into the photo. . .

The studs. . . President George would be proud . . .

Waiting for 1 1/2 hours at "On the Border" for a table on Friday night before the game. . There's nothing like the crowds in College Station on a football weekend. .


  1. Sounds like fun! How is August enjoying A&M? How did the surgery go?

  2. This is so fun. Jordan's comment to me was: The A&M fans are like a cult :0) I love these pictures of you all - especially Jordan in his Aggie gear (It's all good, after all CBU doesn't have a football team)
    Love, Cyndi
