A couple of Fridays ago, we were lucky enough to score some passes to the Pig Iron BBQ Challenge in Hoover – thanks Adrienne! We were there right as it opened, as to prevent a later meltdown from boo – the kid does not like this bed time messed with. To be honest, I was a little nervous about walking around with him – with all the other people there and things to look at. BUT, as he likes to do, I was pleasantly surprised with how well he did.
He did feel the need to get down and wander, but hey, he’s one, so what am I supposed to do? He got terrified by a pirate, popped his balloon animal dog, got a sweet little football from the UAB peeps, and actually ate BBQ. Who is this kid? And he loved it. And it made my mama heart so happy. My favorite picture is of him with his eyes shut, just enjoying the BBQ. He was in heaven with so much to look at and taste — It was so much fun, and I think we’ll definitely be headed to do it again next year.
