Clemson Reunion Weekend

A few years ago, my college roommates and I decided that time after college was somehow flying by even faster than the four years we spent on campus together. So we started a yearly reunion for ourselves and our hubbies, and we have been looking forward to it every year since.

We usually bring along the new babies since their schedules are the most flexible, so this year, Andrea and I brought Ryan and Reynolds to join in on the fun.

Of course we ate at Groucho's for lunch our first day...

...and then hit up Spill the Beans for dessert

My friends are cooler than your friends.

Our cousin Abby met us on Bowman Field- smart girl chose Clemson for her college years and still has 2.5 years left... ahhh lucky thing. We love getting to see her when we visit!

There was a bar crawl going on through downtown as we were shopping/eating our way through the day, so we looked slightly out of place trying to walk through the crowds with our babies in tow. And to all of the people who were waiting in line to get into the different bars, yes that's a baby in the stroller, yes that's a baby I'm wearing, and no, they were not on the bar crawl. (Please notice the two people photo bombing our already awkward we-just-walked-our-babies-through-a-bar-crawl photo. Awesome.)

My sleepy lil tiger and me :)


One of my 10 before 30's (that I decided to turn into a 10 before 40 after my 30th came and went ) was to go on a date involving putt-putt. Well Andrea found out that the fun park in Walhalla that we went to in college reopened sometime this year and had putt-putt, an arcade, and go-carts. Oh and ice-cream and Thai food (what?!). So the 8 of us 30-somethings (with two babies) went to relive our younger years one afternoon while we were there. And it was way fun. Like, way more fun than I think any of us were thinking it would be. 
Since the trip was coined as my 30th birthday party (most likely the first 30th birthday party EVER held at a kids fun center), Matt wore Ryan so I could take part in all the fun.

If you know us, you know we kind of love Wheel of Fortune (and may or may not have made a video to get on the show). If you don't believe me, please check out the intense looks on our faces as we tried to solve the puzzle.
Maybe it's the open mouth, but does anyone else see Ryan when you look at me in this pic?!

We scored 800 tickets on the Wheel of Fortune game and traded them in for gifts for the older kiddos who were with grandparents for the weekend.

Steph turned hers in for Fun Dip. Awesome pregnancy craving.

Baby wearers at putt-putt. :)

Love our lil family :)
