This was a really fun weekend!
It started out as is becoming practice for our Charleston weekends. Ken picks me up in Baby at GD employee parking lot at lunchtime and we head straight out from there to Trevor's house.
It was really windy, which also seems to be the norm for the days we travel, but with the new steering controls Ken could still comfortably drive 60mph.
The other Friday tradition, feeding some of Trev's fellow teammates had a slight twist this week.
Since the wind was making it a bit nippy outside, we improvised and set up in the shed behind the house, next to where we park the RV. It worked out really well and we certainly didn't have to worry about the ice cream atop the pie melting too quickly!
It was also really nice that Kyle was able to make the drive down from Dekalb and arrive in time to join us all for dinner.
The guys surprised Ken and I with a EIU MVP T-shirt they had autographed, thanking us for the Friday evening suppers and making all their games. That really meant a lot to us!!
Kyle, Ken and I moved the RV over to the EIU Panther Club parking lot at 10:00 am. It was a quieter than normal tailgate since the students were off were Thanksgiving break. But, the weather was gorgeous, and the food outstanding, especially the turkey that Luke Larson, Pug's brother, made in the deep fryer.
Here he is being congratulated by Tim Kelly #90, and Rashad Hayne, #26. Trevor had just blocked a field goal that Rashad then ran in for an EIU touchdown.
