Illini Weekend!

Sunday, October 28, 2012
You know you've had a good time when you get home late and your youngest is crying in delirium while admitting he doesn't know why he's crying, but he can't stop.  Worn. Out.

We traveled down to Champaign to watch our Fighting Illini win tailgate.  Being homecoming weekend made it extra special because many alumni were present and the fanfare was probably better than normal.  Chief Illiniwek even made an extremely rare appearance!

With about twenty of us, the kids enjoyed a hotel pool swim and the ability to run around the tailgate area. Adults enjoyed food, fun, and the overall environment.

Silly boys

Like Where's Waldo, but with the Chief.  Good Luck.

My little sister's having a baby...due April.  Forget pink or blue.  Just buy Orange and blue.

Little hot chocolate was necessary to ward off the chill.

Block I impressed with a picture of Foellinger and the Alma Mater.

Yay!  Got to meet up with my college roomate, Kim!
