Alma mater

Eric had CIRT training (SWAT) today so I took the boys to Lawrence for their St. Patrick’s Day parade.  We were going to do the KC one but it was still kind of rainy out at 11.  The Lawrence one didn’t start until 1 so I figured the weather would be better for that one.

We got to Lawrence around 11:30 so I spent an hour or so showing them around KU. 

First, I showed them Allen Fieldhouse, the campus and my old sorority. 

Then on to the Kansas Union where we found lots and lots of Jayhawks to pose with.

Then we headed to GSP, my freshman year dorm.  I forgot how ugly that place is.  On the way from the Union to GSP, I finally saw that new hotel that went up where The Crossing (our old home away from home) used to be.  It looks really nice – I want to stay there. 

Then, after 20 minutes of searching for a parking spot, we ended up parking on the street right next to GSP and walking down to Mass Street for the parade. 

The parade was great and by the time it was over, the sun was starting to peek out.  I bought myself a new shirt from Sunflower, Kenny a KU shirt and Luke a KU jersey.  We’re ready for the tournament to begin now:)   The boys were so good the entire time and definitely deserved ice cream at Sylas and Maddie’s.  Their ice cream is seriously the best out there. 

We ended our trip at Campanile.  It was so nice out at this point, we didn’t need our coats anymore.   

We had a really fun day in Lawrence.  Kenny’s already talking about how he can’t wait to go to college there. 

You’ve got to brainwash train them young:)

  1. It’s always so fun going back to campus. I’m so lucky that my parents only live ~10 minutes away. . . I can go back often! :)
