Still smiling 4 hours into our 7 hour car trip!
When we arrived, we checked into our hotel and immediately hit up the Baylor bookstore for all the BU gear we wanted to buy!
Then we walked over to the bear pit so P could see the bears!
When James was a student, he was in "Chamber" and they were the ones who took care of the bears, put on big events like Homecoming and so on. He loved being on the "visitor" side of homecoming this time! ;)
Looking inside the bear habitat.
We kept walking down memory lane and stopped at the dorms we lived in!
James was in Penland.
Collins was my home away from home freshman year!
This is the Student Union Building or "sub" as we called it. They have completely remodeled the inside and it looks so much better!
As we were walking around, look what we ran into on display...the Heisman Trophy of all things!! They had a huge display dedicated to RGIII and his accomplishments at BU!
Beautiful Pat Neff
This was my walk most days to the education building...so pretty!
Silly boy wouldn't put his hands down for the pic, by now I had taken way too many of him and he was just messing with me.
When James and I were dating, we'd get lunch in Collins and then walk over to this swing and eat. We had many long conversations getting to know each other on this very swing!

Eating dinner at our favorite Mexican food place, Ninfas!
Then it was off to Pigskin and Parker did awesome! We sat through the last 6 shows and he loved all the singing and dancing.
We ended our night at the pep rally and bonfire in the middle of campus. I think this was the biggest bonfire I've ever seen at Baylor! I think because of all the school spirit generated by RG III and the great football season, it's the biggest homecoming I remember seeing there! They even had a big firework show (that never happened in my day!)
Watching the fire!
The next morning we went to the parade through the middle of campus and I met up with a dear friend Caroline! We lived in Collins our freshman year, both pledged Tridelt and have been friends ever since. I love this girl!!
James with two out of his four roomates his senior year. (Trevor and Brian)
These three are best friends!
I love that James still has these incredible men in his life! Even though they live miles apart, they are kindred spirits and can pick up right where they left off.
Brian, James and Tyler
Parker with Tyler's twin girls, Amelia and Caroline who was NOT happy! :)
I'm not sure how much of the parade we saw because we kept running into such wonderful friends!
Me and Jenifer
Parker and I enjoying our Dr. Pepper floats after the parade. He loved that they had green and gold sprinkles to put on top! Brings back lots of "Dr. Pepper hour" memories!
Christmas card attempt
After the parade was over, all the fraternities and sororities parked their floats on campus for everyone to get an up close look. Parker loved seeing them all!
Look who was there...Leah and Ty! These three had a fun little reunion.
The next three pics are for my roomies...Ash, Katie and Bek!
Does this not take you back?
I hope the girls living in 8B are making as many fun memories as we did!
The day didn't slow down! After a quick lunch it was off to cheer the Bears onto a victory against Kansas!
During the game Parker asked to go back to the hotel and we weren't in the room 5 minutes until we saw this sweet face.
We ended our weekend with a fun dinner at George's and then we crashed!
Until next time Baylor...
