MSU Homecoming Parade

Friday night was a beautiful, but chilly fall evening. It was the perfect kind of night to be on the MSU campus and attend the Homecoming parade. We dressed warm, took our chairs, blankets and hot coffee, found a great spot along Grand River avenue and waited for the parade to start.

Of course, the highlight of the parade for us, was the MSU Pompon team and Melissa. My husband was asked by the coach to help carry the banner for the team along with another dad. He was happy to do it and is so proud of his daughter.

These are good dads, happy to support their daughters!

After the parade we were able to take Melissa to dinner and spend some time with her and some of the other pom parents and girls. One of our favorite things is attending homecoming events as alumni, but it is an added bonus now, because we get to spend time with our daughter and see her smiling pretty in that awesome green and white uniform.

Happy Monday :-)
