While I don't want to wish away the spring/summer, I am eagerly awaiting football/tailgate season - just over four months to go. We spent the weekend in State College for the annual spring game - the Blue/White game. The weather was perfect and had me wishing I packed shorts. The game kicked off at 2pm on Saturday so we loaded up a toned down tailgate stash and headed for the stadium just before noon. The guys headed into the game for kickoff but since the score didn't matter, Mom and I enjoyed some extra time in the sun with our cocktails and music. We didn't get our normal spots right outside the stadium in the paved parking lot but the plus side of the fields was a nice view of the stadium.
We snacked on shrimp, a cheese platter, tailgate dip, sandwich bites, chicken nuggets and a couple Penn State cookies. A bloody mary bar and wine/beer served for the drinks.
The weather was so nice that we just grilled out and enjoyed the deck at the house that night. Derek and I played some tennis after the game and my parents walked the dogs over to watch - it was all about enjoying the weather. Some creamery ice cream was enjoyed - a must in State College and we grabbed pizza at one of our favorite local spots on Friday night.
A full car on the way up; Derek left work early to meet us in time for dinner but my parents picked up Stella and I so we could get up early.
Game day ready for our morning walk.
