Stanford red that is. While I felt a little guilty donning the color of the enemy (CU's enemy Nebraska, that is) I quickly got over it and settled in to the tailgating festivities.
It was a little chilly so my koozie from Paige and Matt's wedding came in VERY handy!
Our tailgating "footprint". We had to protect it from all the Oregon fans surrounding us. It got a little awkward when the lot was full but it was still just us :-)! Luckily...
Our friends showed up!
We had a great time BBQing, playing games, and chatting.
Future tailgating pros...Kayla, Paisley, Hanna, and Ella
Another event, another excuse to make fun cupcakes!
Scott manning the grill. The burgers, brats, and hot dogs (not to mention Aaron's ribs) were DELICIOUS!
Tanner preparing for the game!
LOVE THIS...Ian, Ella, Hanna, Paisley and Cort all walking hand in hand to the game.
The Stanford tree, the mascot. Although they are supposedly also the Cardinals. I originally thought this meant the bird...NOPE...it is the color! Cardinal red. What an interesting school. I prefer the dancing tree to the color although it all left me a little confused. If you are interested in learning more about this, there is an abundance of information here.
The entire day was a lot of fun and I am looking forward to the next one!
The rest of the weekend was pretty mellow...we began watching Mad Men. ADDICTED! We can hardly hit "next" fast enough from episode to episode. We also took the princess on a nice long walk on Sunday around the Presidio and down Crissy Field. Not a bad place for an afternoon stroll...
All in all it was another fabulous weekend in California!
