I got a few Clemson goodies and then we went to eat at Mellow Mushroom.
The next morning we were up bright and early and got to the tailgating spot right before 8am! Yes we love tailgating. Again it was pretty chilly that morning but we knew it would warm up later for game time so we layered and wrapped in blankets. Of course there were tiger paw muffins.
Eric's parents and Abby arrived with some other breakfast items. My mom had made Abby this so incredibly adorable Clemson colored gameday dress. We picked out the fabrics and the pattern when I visited them in July. My mom whipped up that dress so much faster than I could have.
It is McCall's 6100 pattern. It is a simple pattern and would still look great without the appliqued hearts. I have still not tried my luck at applique yet but mom is great at it. You should definitely try this pattern out for an adorable toddler or little girl dress. You can see pics throughout the post of what it looks like on... its great for twirling!
And what gameday toddler dress would be complete without a cute football themed headband?!
We had a great time hanging out and playing tag and such before the game.
During a trip to the library bathrooms we saw they had dyed the reflection pond orange... it was interesting. Certainly solid orange.
Then it was about time to head into the stadium for noon kickoff.
This was Abby's first college game. I think she was a little overwhelmed by all the people and the noise. This is DEATH VALLEY after all... the best college football atmosphere there is!
Everyone had fun cheering on the Tigers (and the other Tigers).
Me and the 'rents
Thankfully Clemson pulled off the win (sorry mom)!
We went back to the tailgate for some yummy food post game: chicken salad on rolls, italian pasta salad, cheese and crackers, fruit, chips, brownies and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Perfect that none of that requires heating so no need to worry with a grill or cooker of any sort.
Then we played some more tag and raced around and did dances with the pom poms.
It was a wonderful day with our families in Tigertown :) Hopefully we can do that again next year.
