Why I’m Totally Pooped at 9:33 on Saturday Night

Our weekend so far:

1. Lookin’ for the Big Win: PSU Homecoming Parade

Some photo-worthy wonders displaying true collegiate intelligence:

Button Man (that’s a lot of buttons)

Fire Man (who dropped his baton and accidentally lit a piece of candy on fire. A girl on the sidelines doused the flame just in time to spare the truck that was about to drive over it next.)

Donkey Man

Big Tissue-Paper Man (who didn’t realize that the costume would be so heavy, he’d have to take a break. see the next photo.)

Ugly Tights Women (those tights are very ugly)

Liberal Arts Students

2. Apple and Pumpkin Picking!

(These next two photos are titled, “How to Know When to Leave the Vicinity”)

3. A Totally Cool Double Birthday Party at Slinky’s Action Zone! (I’d post more pics, but haven’t asked the parents’ permission; sorry.)

(Lia swiped that blue icing out of no where. I mean NO where. Faster than anything. Can you say, “motherly dismay”? …and just this morning I was congratulating myself on not letting her taste sugar yet… or eggs, blue food coloring, animal products, etc. etc. etc. Needless to say, she loved it.)

4. And finally, a fantastic PSU comeback to beat Michigan for the first time in years.(Thanks, in part, to our enthusiastic cheering, I’m sure.)

    GREAT pictures – I love so many of them, the apple orchard looks beautiful!

    I want that t-shirt! LOL.

    And, um, I was in bed at 8:30 on Saturday – can you say OLD? It’s sad, really.
