Earlier this month, we took the boys to Baton Rouge to experience a real Southeastern Conference football game. The LSU Fighting Tiger fans welcomed us right in so we dressed to impress and hit the tailgating parties! Daddy had scored two tickets from an Air Force friend and his friends invited us to join in on their pre-game celebration. Lucas and Daddy were going to the game while Axel and Mommy had other plans.
Parking was crazy! There were purple and yellow people EVERYWHERE! Cabaña after cabaña set up on every piece of real estate within miles of the stadium. Some even had hi-tech fans, air conditioners, huge flat screen TV's and enough food and drinks to survive a storm!
This was tailgating on steroids!! These fans were not messing around!!
|We had about a mile walk to the stadium.|
|Friends of friends...thanks for you hospitality!|

This is a BIG stadium so Daddy and Lucas headed straight for the top to get in a little "hike" and see the view!
What a great experience for the whole family. I'm so glad we did this while living somewhat close to LSU. Football is BIG in these parts!!
The next day, we were off to New Orleans!
