Here comes Bullet! (and other tales from Stillwater)

On November 9, 2013, Oliver experienced a truly magical event. One I hope he will get to repeat over and over and over...Nope, not Disney World. An Oklahoma State home football game! Whoop! We road-tripped down to Cowboy Country, along with the rest of the Lawrence crew - Clothiers, Griffiths and Gudgells, to watch OSU destroy KU. Oliver had a blast wreaking havoc touring around campus. We took nostalgia pics at the Phi Kappa Tau house (where all the dads lived during college and where all the moms met the dads during college. Note, no kids were made at the PKT house during college. ;)) The Coles Family's pre-game activities then commenced: We sprinted strolled through Theta pond and Library Lawn; careened moseyed by the student union; crashed caught a pep rally at the Alumni Center - complete with band, Pistol Pete and cheerleaders; got our cheese-fries on at Eskimo Joe's - outside tent only, to be specific; got our picture taken with Bullet the horse - actually, only 1 person got their picture taken, b/c he refused to let his parents join in; and then made our way to Boone Pickens Stadium, where Oliver thoroughly enjoyed watching Bullet race out onto the field after after Poke touchdown - of which there were alot! He passed out dozed off on Matt near the end of the first half, so we gave up on the game, made a quick stop at heaven Coney Island on our way out of town, and were back home and asleep by 10pm. A great introduction to OSU game day if ever there was one!
Now, to figure out a way to make it to a basketball game this season....

  Phi Kappa Tau Alums and Futures. I'm not sure if it's technically allowed to take photos with the fraternity crest and share them with the outside world. I still don't know where Matt's fraternity nickname comes from. Hush hush and all.

 Not to be left out.

I would love to tell you that the PKT's have really classed up the joint and made great improvements to the house since our time there. But, alas, not so much. Those alumni should really step up, don't you think? :)

Library Lawn. As beautiful as ever.

Three little stinkers.

Meeting Bullet. Solo. Alone. Individually. Sans parents.

GO POKES!
