California Dreamin…...

This was the year Auburn surprised us all with an unforgettable winning season…
"It May Never Happen Again!" 
……  so Rick decided to
take the WHOLE family to Pasadena, California
for the 2013 Championship Bowl game!
Whoo Hoo!!!

Snow storms along the East Coast did not stop our travels…..
"It's Great To Be An Auburn Tiger!"

We went to the Auburn Pep Rally
where the miracle plays between August and December 
were played on the Jumbotron over and over.  Even the "War Eagle" made an appearance!

We did a little sight seeing……
greeting anyone wearing orange and blue with 
the traditional "War Eagle" greeting!

Even ran into friends and family!  

Game Day started with the Auburn Alumni Tailgate…..
Orange and Blue required!
A band, cheerleaders, beverages and food….

Now this is how we do it!!!

The Rose Bowl
A dream come true!

We could not have been prouder of the Auburn Tigers even if they had held off FSU on their last minute drive. They had not shown up to look good, they showed up to WIN, and we cheered them on until the last second.  The atmosphere in the stadium was electric - we were high five'n strangers and only sat down for half time.  As we left the stadium, dreading the long walk and train ride back to the hotel, we were energized by the chanting all around us….
"It's Great, To Be,
An Auburn Tiger"!
