A Sad Goodbye

After the Iron Bowl, an Alabama fan decided to poison our beloved oak trees at Toomer's Corner in Auburn. These 130 year old trees are so beautiful and mean a tremendous amount to the Auburn family. It's so hard to understand how someone could do that. To have such a lack of respect for nature makes no sense to me. These trees are irreplaceable, and the news of this brought such sadness to us and the entire Auburn family. We always envisioned ourselves taking Marin to Toomer's Corner, and it may never be the same. So, this weekend we decided to load up and head to Auburn so we could at least take her there to see the trees one more time. It was a beautiful day and it was fun and sad all at the same time to see so many people coming out to say their goodbye's. This man has taken a symbol of our school, but he can never change the Auburn spirit.
I hope they can survive

Daddy taking Marin into Toomer's for their famous lemonade...
maybe next time she'll get to have some.

She loves Auburn already!
The new basketball arena that I hadn't seen yet.
It was so fun taking Marin around campus and trying to
guess what it might be like by the time she goes to school there.
It has already changed so much since we were there.
So tired after a fun day outside. Check out those chubby legs!
