Our First Time Hosting a Tailgater

FIRST UP, THANK YOU WILLIAMS FOR THE USE OF YOUR PARKING PASS! I still would have preferred you guys to be here instead of us hosting, but it was awfully nice of you to let us have the pass and throw together a last minute party.

John was able to secure an ideal location, (there was actually grass!!), so we were very pleased as it really was a nice place to have a pre-game picnic. We were also quite happy with the last minute turn-out. Our guests included the Johnsons, Davis, Whites, Quigleys, good enough for us!

Taylor, Cameron, and Brayden - Looking tough!

This is why it is a good idea NOT to give Mikayla Dramamine before a football game (we had driven the windy way out to Mom and Dads earlier and she had felt sick). The first pic is her at the tailgater, then she woke up, enthusiastically entered the stadium and proceeded to sleep through the first one and a half quarters. I am SO GLAD we didnt spend the money this year to get her a season ticket (this was a special KIDS CLUB game, so both kids got to go).

I am pleased to report the Ducks pulled out a win. In the third quarter, at one point, there were 3 touchdowns in a span of 58 seconds. Unfortunately, Mikayla and I had just left at that point. I guess we are getting famous at leaving prior to the most exciting points of a game. I am still quite unsettled with the lack of confidence inspired by both the offense and defense, but I guess that comes with the territory of being a Duck fan. We will, once again, have to just wait and see.....

I can't think of a better group to have the pass. I am so glad you had a good time and if anyone can pull off a last minute tailgater it is the Rileys! We miss you!
