Clemson Reunion Weekend

This year's 5th annual (wow!) Clemson Reunion Weekend was for the Clemson vs. FSU game the weekend of Sept 24th. It just so happened to be the weekend after our Clemson vs. Auburn game family weekend so Eric and I got to be in Clemson two weekends in a row. It kinda felt like when we were students and we were there every home football weekend.

On Friday, after a little shopping downtown we went to Monterrey's with the Morgan clan. Lots of yummy cheese dip and chips were consumed as usual and some margaritas.

Then we were off to Tiger Town Tavern where we always go the Friday night before the game (and usually the night after the game too).

The next morning I snapped this pic of the lake house we rented for 2 nights because it was much cheaper than a hotel, although it was further away. Next year hopefully the Anderson condo we always like to rent won't already be booked.

We were out to the tailgate spot before 9am ready to have mimosas, bagels, pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, fruit, spinach dip, and such. The Morgan fam hosts a wondeful tailgate every year!

Annual session of putting together of the new grill after the old grill forgot to get packed. Kelly had the honor this year.

Traditional photo shoot of the roomies. I think this photo is hilarious of us telling Vickie she had something on a tooth. True friends tell each other things like that :)

We miss you Brooke

Gen and I

If you read my Auburn game post which was a week before this game you will notice my hair is certainly shorter in this picture with Eric than in ones from that weekend

My little Christa stopped by the tailgate.

AXO girls

Of course there was cornhole.

We had a wonderful lunch of bbq, coleslaw, cheese & crackers, smores bars, brownies, and more. Then we relaxed a bit.

Vickie's brother who is a big FSU fan brought an FSU themed raft that he blew up... great for pre-game napping.

Game time! This was a 3:30 game. We had all hoped for a night game but at least it wasn't noon. It was pretty hot out even at 3:30.

The Tigers pulled off a great win over FSU! I am 5-0 for Clemson vs. FSU games.

After the alma mater.

After going back to the tailgate for awhile it got quite dark so we headed to Tiger Town Tavern again to finish out the night.

It was a fabulous Clemson reunion weekend and I cannot wait for next year! (Brooke you better be there!)
