...And if I Had a Son Sir, I Tell You What He'd Do...

...he would yell, "to hell {heck?} with GEORGIA, like his daddy use to do {still does}!"

Saturday was a big day for the Herring family...Chad in particular...he got to take his son to his first Georgia Tech game. Chad has been looking forward to this day since we found out we were having a boy. It's something that I know he will enjoy sharing with Griffin for years and years to come!!

The morning of the game Griffin woke up at his usual 7:00am. Chad went to get him and feed him while I stayed in bed for just a bit longer. When I walked into Griffin's room, Chad had already put Griff into his game day jersey. {This jersey is made for a 2 year old, but we bought it before we even knew if we were having a boy or a girl...either way, Chad was going to put our child in it as soon as the right occasion arose!}

Here's our boy...all ready to go tailgate for a few hours before the big game! I think he looks like such a BIG BOY in the jersey and the tennis shoes! This was the first time he has ever worn tennis shoes and he had no clue what those big things on his feet were. hahah...very cute.

Griffin made lots of new friends at our tailgate, and took a particular liking to Elizabeth. {Already a fan of pretty girls.}

Cottingham is already trying to corrupt our child...we'll have to keep an eye on uncle John. {Griffin was very interested in that bottle.}

The Sineway's were there with thier new addition as well. I think Griffin and Leah totally have a "thing" for each other already. What boy wouldn't like a girl in a precious yellow tu-tu!?

The band came over to play the fight song right in front of our tailgate. I wasn't sure how Griffin would react to this because he gets startled by loud noises sometimes {his dad's sneezes scare him to death}, but he LOVED the band! He danced right along to the music.

This is Griffin and Mommy doing the "Budwiser" song....up, down, up, down....

Griffin's buddy Jack was there too! We always have fun with's fun to see the boys together, and with Griffin getting bigger and bigger, they are actually starting to interact a bit more. Boy, it will be a great time when they are both running around with each other {and I'm sure Leah will be right there in the mix too!}

The dad's with their, my how the crowd at the tailgates has changed in the last few years. I just love this picture. We're so lucky to have great friends who are going through this parenthood thing with us!

Tailgating makes everyone tired. Griffin had to rest up before the big game!!

Chad swore that he would never wear this Baby Bjorn....we all see how that turned out.

....and here we are! Griffin is in Bobby Dodd stadium for the first of many times!!

Chad is singing the fight song to Griffin after Tech's first score. Griffin was singing along since he already knows all the words, his dad sings that song to him every night before putting him to bed.

After he was sure Tech was going to win, G decided to take a little nap. The heat was making him sleepy.

Griffin made it all the way to the 4th quarter before we decided to call it a day. Everyone was hot and tired and ready to head home. He did a GREAT job at his first game!

We're so proud that Griffin is such a trooper and seems to do just fine anywhere we take him. He just goes with the flow and we love him for it! We are so glad that we will be able to enjoy going to games as a family for years to come. Way to go big boy!!

  1. So cute! Looks like everyone had a good time. We really don't need to teach Griffin talk about Aunt Nat Nat's school like that though ;)
