Weekend Recap

It has been a busy weekend!

The weekend started out with a Dave Matthews Band concert at Principal Park in downtown Des Moines. It was a beautiful evening and it was a great concert! We had reserved seating in the stands and no one stood at all the whole concert...which was totally fine by me. I don't think I could have handled anything other than that!

Here is a shot of the whole crew:

This was the first time Dave Matthews had been back in Iowa since he played in Ames in 2004...which was the last time I saw him. I was even 21 then! Eek!

Carter is so funny-he is always just chillin back there and cranking out cool stuff!

Saturday was ISU football vs. Army. It was also a beautiful day and we had a great time tailgating with friends.

Our friend Dave brought a keg a beer (what a friend!) and I made pulled pork and rotel cheese dip (which we are still eating!). Pork butt roasts were on sale for $.99 a pound at Hyvee so I got two 7 lb-ers and cooked them up!

Did I mention it was a beautiful day?

Our friends Steve and Jeynae stopped by and I was bummed I didn't get to chat with them very much but after the game they stopped by again (along with our friends Eric and Jodi) and it was good to talk with them. They are expecting in March and I think they are going to be great parents!

I thought it was a pretty big honor to play Army and I think ISU did a good job of honoring it before and during the game. Pretty cool!

The band sounded great this week and had a cool show-music from Slumdog Millionaire and Up. They even spelled it out and made the little house.

The 2nd picture is how to make sure your group gets noticed at a football game...they were bright!

  1. Iowa State tailgating is like no other. So much space. At least you all won last weekend, it makes the game more fun ;-)
