We started game day in one of the many tailgating parking lots about 8 hours before the game. It was really kind of rainy already but we were told to get there early in hopes to find a place to tailgate. We were one of the first to arrive and you can imagine we really stuck out like a sore thumb with our Oregon Gazebo. (no body wanted to be in the spot next to us until they had no other choice) In the end we had a ton of fun with our Tennessee tailgating neighbors and enjoyed sharing our drinks and food with them.
Once we arrived at the game it became clear pretty quickly in the first quarter that it was going to storm. All of a sudden he players ran off the field and it was announced that we could take shelter if we choose to. Matt and I being the Georgians we think we are were thinking they were crazy!!! Well, we did not leave because it was unsafe to even go near the stairs as everyone was trying to jam themselves down. SOOO we ended up sharing ponchos. Matt and I under one and Ricky and Holly under one. We were soaked to the bone and a little miserable for a few hours. When the game took a turn before half we were starting to warm up (a little) and enjoyed ourselves.

We had been anxiously a waiting a chance to meet up with Holly and Ricky and enjoy a Ducks game. The day finally came!! Matt and I made the 6 hour drive to Tennessee to meet up with Holly and Ricky just in time for dinner. We choose to go to the cute little sports bar for dinner and drinks. And than headed to play pool and enjoy ourselves in the next room. The Tennessee fans were so nice. And as the only 4 fully ducked out duck fans in the establishments you can imagine how much attention was drawn towards us")

On our final evening at Camp our neighbors loaned us their boat to tow the kids in the float. They had such a blast. And then the next day we all went out on the boat and the jet skies and enjoyed our final summer day in the water!!

For Labor day this weekend we had our last camping trip for this year. We had a great time swimming, fishing, and relaxing. Matt borrowed a canoe from a friend and was able to take the kids out fishing in the morning, they got a real kick out of that!!

Emma had a good 6th Birthday. We started the celebration at school at lunch time. I brought cupcakes in for the class and she enjoyed having me sit by here as her friends enjoyed a little treat.
When she got home from school she was greated with a arm load of presents. We waited to open the gifts from Nana and Papa. She got new barbies, clip ear rings, and a pair of rain boots. From Matt and I she got Zhu Zhu Pet babies and the course for the big Zhu Zhu Pet. (These were the hot item last Christmas) She also got a new twin size air mattress for camping and a new big girl pink fishing poll. She is so excited to try it out tomorrow!!
