Tailgate

"Deep inside, we're still the boys of autumn, that magic time of the year that once swept us onto America's fields."**

We went to Oxford again last weekend, this time with Mindy to watch Ole Miss beat Arkansas. Turns out, swine are good for more than just spreading the flu--they're also good for getting your offense back in gear. Here, Henry makes a shifty move in the Grove to evade would-be tacklers Stephen and Sanders.

A brief moment of still for a pose with tailgate buddies Stephen, Lizzie and Sanders. I swear we do put him in other clothes, but on gamedays the jersey has to come out.

The helmet sometimes comes out too. Good thing we keep that thing at Gran Gran and Pop's house or he'd try to wear it to school. And yes, that is him lining up in punt formation.

The size of these smiles tells you this was taken post-game.

More punting.

There were calmer moments last weekend too. Like watching Madagascar with Pop...

...and relaxing with Duckie, even if through a facemask. I love this picture--it really does sum up Henry's personality.

What's with all those people walking through your area? You need to put up some ropes.
