Good Luck, Matty!!!

Last week, Matty said 'goodbye' to Camas and 'hello' to Pullman.

Goodbyes are so hard!

We drove over on Friday, as move in day was bright & early Saturday morning. Once in Pullman, we met up with Lin, Ward, Katie & Tom (who so graciously changed their vacation plans to have dinner with us!). Thank you, Berges!!!

Fun fact: All three couples are WSU love stories! ♥

Move in was 8:00 a.m. Saturday. It took less than five minutes to get Matty checked in. He has a nice view of campus & Stadium Way. Fun fact: Both Naseem & my sister Brenda lived in Gannon Hall.

Dorm room set up, complete!

After Matty was all moved in, we traipsed around downtown.
Ten years separate these photos.♥

Sunday came way too fast! We met up with Matty at our favorite burger joint! No stop to Pullman is complete without a stop here.

Believe it or not, we ate at delicious Cougar Country Drive In  for breakfast! It's that good!!!
Omid and I said our goodbyes to Matty (which was oh so hard).  Once home, I decided to follow Matty's dorm on Twitter. What did I see? A photo of Matty at the ice cream social! He's in the bottom left with the bucket hat. ☺
So true!
Matty decided to attend Fraternity rush last week. This was a new experience for Omid and I as neither of us went through the Greek system. It was exciting to hear about all the fun he had this week. Matty pledged his first choice Delta Chi!
Here is a fun video Matty sent me. After the pledges received their bids, they ran to the house rep who had t-shirts with the house of their choice, grabbed a t-shirt, then ran all the way from the CUB to the house on Greek row. So funny!

Happy pledges!

2014 Delta Chi pledge class!
I asked Matty if the house employed a house mother. His reply: "No, but we have a house dog!"
Congrats Matty!
We are so proud of you and are excited for you to write your own WSU story!! ♥

Pullman Visit!!

I'm oh so late in updating this post. Oh well, better late than never!
A few weeks ago, Matty had to go to Pullman for his ALIVE! orientation. Omid and I had to tag along and get our Pullman fix too.
Pullman or bust!

Remy also joined us! He's always up for a road trip.☺

Mattys' door in Stephenson East.

I always swell up with Cougar Pride when I see this symbol! GO COUGS!

The WSU sign above it directly across the street from Sella's restaurant. After we took Remy's photo, we went & had dinner. They even let Remy eat with us on the deck!
Sella's for Mac 'n Jack & pizza!
Remy & my favorite building on campus: Thompson Hall.

Amber waves of grain = harvest time!
Omid and I drove down to Wawawaii one day for a picnic; and Remy went for a swim in the Snake River.

The CUB posted this photo on their Facebook page that said: We love our Coug Moms!
To that I add: #notjustacougmom #WSUalumni

No trip to Pullman is complete without a stop to Old European for aebelskivers! #pullmantradition

We visited the new Brelsford Visitor Center. They even welcomed Remy inside.☺

Our last few minutes in Pullman.
Omid and I had a wonderful time visiting all of our old stomping grounds around the area. Matty said he had a great time at Alive! He met lots of new people and seems excited to start his own journey in Pullman. ☺ GO COUGS!!!!
