Last month I took a long weekend trip to go visit Erica and Padraig and our main event for the weekend....
going to my alma mater for a Notre Dame football game!
It had been way too long since I had been back to campus and I figured why not fly through Michigan and visit Erica too. We had such an awesome weekend!
On Friday, we started with a quick trip down the tunnel the players come out every Saturday and were able to go onto part of the field. Yeah, they didn't let us do that back when I went there!
I'm not sure Padraig was thrilled about the gold helmet. I was on the other hand!
We stayed with my best friend from college and it was so great to catch up with her!
Her two nephews dressed in their Halloween costumes on Saturday and looked so cute posing with the ND Band!
And it was a gorgeous fall Saturday on campus and there is just nowhere that does college football better than Notre Dame in my opinion. It is such a special place.
The Golden Dome
The Library and Touchdown Jesus
We squeezed in a quick photo shoot (hello, how could we not?!). New hat pattern coming soon!! And then game time.
We tried to get a picture of all of our different Knitspot hat's on. Yeah, not perfect at the selfies. I have to admit, for a 2-year old, baby Padraig was a trooper! He loved watching the band and the student section right below us. I think he went the entire day without a nap, poor kiddo. He melted Auntie IGK's heart when towards the end of the game he got the "Let's go IWISH" cheer down :)
All happy after a close win!!
Bonus part of the weekend was hanging out with Erica's parents! We stayed at their house in Kalamazoo the first night and it was so fun hanging out. Plus, her mom made us this delicious pie!!! So good!
Plus, Nana and Padraig have this little whipped cream routine :)
Missing this kiddo and his mama so much now!!
Hope you all had a great weekend!
