In the mean time, the Boilermakers played their first home game of the season, and sweet baby Haleigh made her first trip to Ross-Ade Stadium. She was looking cute in her new Boiler bow, even with Uncle Adam being 'that guy' in the background.
We flew our new flags to mark our spot in the tailgate lot. A black Purdue train and a Saints flag. Come see us!
Adam brought some buddies, and they helped to make sure the pancakes, sausage, and bacon all got eaten. Thanks guys! Come back again!
Haleigh didn't get pancakes and sausage, but she enjoyed her own version of tailgate food. She's wearing her bib from Uncle David and Aunt Shylah. It says "Hoosiers Drool, Purdue Rules." Definitely. We missed David and Shy, and Jim had to set up the tent all by himself. We hope it will work out for them to come for Homecoming, and I know they were cheering for the Boilers from NC.
Ben and Becky Wicker came by the tailgate, and I'm guessing Becky and Darci are sharing some mommy talk. Ben and Becky have a new baby, Maggie, but she didn't come to the game this time.
Haleigh was probably the cutest Boiler baby ever in her new jumper and bow. And yes, she was the star of the tailgate and the game, at least in my opinion.
Here are Darci, Haleigh, and Andrew ready to head in to the stadium.
Darci took Haleigh on a little walk to visit Aunt Becky and some friends, and ran into the Rickes as well. Elizabeth's son Cooper was enjoying his first Purdue football game, too, and they snapped this picture entitled, "Love at first football." We will have to show it to Cooper and Haleigh when they're starting their freshman year at Purdue.
