Every other year for the past few years, Notre Dame has played Stanford here in the bay area, just a few miles from my house, on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend. And each year, our tradition of tailgating before the game and going to the game has become a bigger event. My brother goes all out in the hosting/setting up/coordinating department!
Here he is playing with the new ND bean bag toss.
Lil' Guy can already catch and throw a football pretty well for a four-year old.
Ah! Sticks, dirt and rocks! Perfect entertainment for Lil' Guy!
There was tons of food, but my favorite by far were these cupcakes my sister-in-law made! Too cute!
We had great seats and it is always awesome to watch and cheer for the Irish in person!
Yeah, it was a tough loss. And lil' guy was worn out from the torture of the Irish not playing too great.
This year we had another fabulous time, despite the sad loss. But I can't wait for 2013! Go Irish!! Hey, at least we made it to a bowl game! One more football game to look forward to!
