Homecoming is one of my favorite weekends of the year. I look forward to it so much every year. This was the seventh Homecoming Trent and I have attended together. Unbelievable! We started the weekend with our annual dinner at Ninfa’s. I have zero pictures there. It mainly involved Hudson running around outside while we waited an hour for a table. Then we headed to our friends, the Hagins’, to spend the night. We put Hudson to bed and stayed up late talking and having a great time!
The day started very early on Saturday. We managed to make it to the Chi O breakfast in time to see the pledges do their pledge songs. I don’t think I have EVER made it in time for that and I was pretty impressed that we made it there with a 20 month old! After Hudson made friends with a few of the actives (and by make friends I mean he crawled up in their laps and tried to steal their doughnuts…I wish I was kidding) we made our way to the parade. In a few years I look forward to watching the parade again, right now though Hudson likes to do what he does best – RUN!
Hudson and Gracie – I think this is the first picture I have taken of them where they are both looking at the camera:
Hudson is obsessed with dogs lately. Whenever he sees one he runs full-out towards it and then he isn’t sure what to do once he gets there. :)
Macy and Christine got to the parade and Hudson was in heaven! He loves Macy!
I glanced over and saw that they were walking the bear back to the bear pit:
Hudson LOVES balloons:
However, he hates it when they fly away:
He seriously stood there with his arms up like that for about five minutes. I think he thought he could will it back to the ground.
The Noze Brotherhood is one of my favorite things about Baylor. I think it is such a fascinating group and tradition. I *might* know one. ;)
College (and current) besties:

We had such a great time! We were talking on the drive home about how Homecoming is one of our favorite traditions…we can’t wait until next year!
