Visit to Auburn

Yesterday we drove down to Auburn to visit Safa. We were supposed to make a weekend of it, but didn't make hotel reservations in time. Since it was family weekend, all the hotels in the Auburn/ Opelika area were booked up, with no rooms available. Instead, we left Birmingham early, and were in Auburn before 10.

We spent a little time at Safa's apartment, before she took us out for a walking tour of the city.

True to my mommy self, I helped clean up the kitchen a bit, before we headed out.

This weekend was Auburn's homecoming game, so we encountered a sea of people dressed in orange and blue, everywhere we went. This is the famous Momma Goldberg's Deli, just beyond the campus.

At Toomer's Corner:

Cater Hall, where the Honors college is housed:

And more sights around campus:

Bilal had enough of sightseeing, about half way into our walk, and started getting grumpy. Fortunately, it was nothing that a smoothie from Safa's favorite smoothie place couldn't fix!

It was great to see that Safa is very happy, and settled in college. But I can't wait to see her again in a few weeks!
