OSU Weekend

We had so much fun the weekend of OSU vs KU here in Lawrence. We had a nice-sized posse of Pokes come up for the event. Oliver got to witness his first college football game - at least until the end of the 1st quarter when it started POURING and the much-delayed nap time reared its ugly head!

Matt, Oliver and I went to the little pep rally before the game to welcome the players to the stadium. The band, cheerleaders, Pistol Pete, and some very friendly OSU grandparents (not ours) were on hand for the occasion, and Oliver was wide-eyed and taking it all in from every angle! He was VERY interested in Pistol Pete....until we tried to get him to take a picture with the big guy, and then, well, he was not so interested in getting so up close and personal!

Also before the game, we hoofed it over to local watering hole the Wheel to meet up with the other Cowboys in our group, and the Three Musketeers (Noah, Charlie & Oliver) had fun wreaking havoc and running amok (Amok, amok, amok! - Name that movie!) amongst the crowd of orange and black that dominated the outside of the Wheel. All in all, it was a very successful weekend, with a win for the Pokes, and a win in the FUN category. I can't wait to take Oliver down to Stillwater to fully immerse him in Cowboy Country, now that he can (and does quite often) say "Go Pokes"!
O not quite the fan of Pistol Pete he thought he was!
Pistol Pete is still a little too close for comfort.
Hooray for big smiles!

Trouble comes in threes!
