A Perfect Night for a Parade



We spent a wonderful night on the MSU campus, this past Friday, at the annual homecoming parade and were thrilled to see Melissa and her pompon team performing. The theme this year was "be a superhero" and it was fun to see the girls wearing capes, proudly stating "SpartansWill" on their backs.

The floats and participants all embraced the theme and even the MSU mascot, Sparty wore a mask and a cape, for the event.

The weather could not have been more perfect, for a night on campus and we were very comfortable sitting in our chairs along the parade route. We happily watched the various sports teams pass by and sang the fight song with the MSU band. We cheered as loud as we could when it was the pompon team's turn to march by, doing their fabulous routine, set to music and thrilling the crowd of parade spectators.

After the parade, we took a short walk to a restaurant near campus and had dinner with Melissa and a few of her friends. It is always such a joy for us to be on campus, watch her perform and spend time with her.

Happy Monday!
