this is one of our favorite places to visit. we are wildcat fans, we bleed purple.
jenna participated in the state 4h horticulture judging contest, so we all went and made a day of it.
the intermediate team, strategizing a plan of attack.
must have worked, here they are with their coach, scott, and their 3rd place certificates. congratulations, jenna, we are proud of you!
while jenna was judging, cal and i headed to the practice field to watch the ksu band. it was hot, they were working hard. fun to hear the wabash and the fight song.
lunch at our favorite spot, hibachi hut, where we ordered belly bomb’s and gauchos. the owner spotted cal’s collection of hot wheels on the table, he told him all about his collection in his basement he saved from his own boys.
clark got a tip from the proud dad of a wildcat football player that we could enjoy fan appreciation if we hung around. we watched the last hour of practice, heard from the coaching staff and team captains and then got the chance to go onto the field for autographs.
this is jordyn, he was a newton railer. fun to meet a local kid and wish him luck for the season.
the crowd on the field wasn’t exactly callan’s speed, so he and i grabbed a snack from the car and found a shady place outside the stadium to wait for clark and jenna. he was bummed that the line for willie the wildcat’s autograph was loooong. good things come to those who wait. guess who came running out of the stadium and we snagged him for a pic.
we happened upon this in aggieville.
we were several rows back in the crowd and couldn’t really see, so jenna
elbowed, politely made her way to the front so she could get this shot.
a fun day. found this on the way to the car. if the shop hadn’t been closed it would have been mine.
