(Quite a lengthy post, you may need a snack)
BigDaddy and I headed to South Bend last weekend.
I think the MollDoll was excited to see us.
We were certainly excited to see her.
She didn't even mind my obsessive picture taking.
(Well, by Sunday there was a little eye rolling).
I know I don't have to mention how quickly the years pass by.
But let me just say that Freshman orientation seems like yesterday...
We never really tire of walking the campus.
And I never really tire of taking pictures here.
How could I?
The university kept us busy with workshops, dinners, and even dancing.
We managed to have a quick dinner with friends at the Emporium before the organized activities started.
Molly's dorm was fighting a battle with conjunctivitis (pink-eye).
And since Molly is my daughter, she ended up in the infirmary picking up some antibiotic drops.
We girls seem to have very poor immunity lately.
But she did manage to enjoy the rest of the weekend with her red eyes.

We ordered her ring...this made me a little teary.
We ate at the MARK
I was quite impressed by my Earth Omelette.
Molly told me that taking a picture of my omelette was totally unnecessary.
I didn't agree.
(Let the eye rolling begin).

I did learn something I never knew before.
It seems the squirrels on campus are thought to be very friendly.
Yes, friendly squirrels reside here at Notre Dame.
Molly insists that it's true.
I did get rather close...
They did like to pose.
We always end our visits with a trip to the Grotto...
These girls took a break from their run to say a prayer...always a good idea.
There's quite a crowd here before finals!
...we left our prayers at the Cathedral.
It was another visit we'll remember.
I'll also remember that Beer Pong has no age limit...
...and we adults have no shame.
