Notre Dame Weekend!

This past weekend I decided to surprise James and plan a little road trip.  The Univeristy of Utah (our alma mater) was playing football against Notre Dame and we have some good friends that live there so we made the three and half hour drive to South Bend, Indiana!

The first night we stayed in a hotel in Sturgis, Michigan (thanks to my mom giving us some of her credit card points so it was free!)  Scott LOVED playing in the hotel pool with daddy.

The next morning we met up with our friends Heather, Russ and Hannah Cramer.  Russ is getting his MBA at Notre Dame so the took us on a tour of campus.  I have always wanted to see Notre Dame ever since I saw the movie RUDY! RUDY! RUDY!

this is a photo of the grotto.  its a pretty famous place where catholics go to pray.  i actually ran into an old work buddy here (jaimee farrer).  what a small world!
this is the basilica - the catholic cathedral. 
we did A LOT of walking while we were there but scott was a trooper with it all.
Luckily we got a great babysitter for scott while we went to the game. It was raining and the utes played terribly but i enjoyed getting a snack and hot chocolate duing half time!

even though the Utes lost we still had a really good time.  many thanks to Russ and Heather for getting us tickets and showing us around!
