Miami v. Duke

in All Posts

Our one and only tailgate of the season!  We dropped the ball (ooooh, football pun!) on the pre-game food spread.  Normally, we are pretty creative and nosh on grilled peaches, veggie kebobs, and other fun fixings, but we made do with some veggie burgers and baked beans.  Tailgate games = played.  Karaoke in a parking lot = sung.  Adult beverages = consumed.  And heck, our team even won.  So it was a good day all around.

    Where’s Nick in the photos? You can’t just tease us with a Nick car sticker! Nice hat though, cartoon Nick!

    Love the sophisticated asparagus/ baked bean combo.

    What were the hits covered (mangled?) in tailgate karaoke?

      Haha Carin, I will have to tell Nick that you are gonna ditch the fam, move to America, and date him 🙂 He is shy about being on the blog because of his work 🙂

      I mangled Eye of the Tiger. Oh yeah.

        Tell me that there was some “Livin’ On A Prayer” action going on too…! 😉

        Pile on the Nick intrigue, why dontcha?! He’s shy “because of his work”? My mind is boggling… spy? politician? internet (or actual) troll? He truly is a man of mystery.

        Couldn’t ditch the kids, but very tempted to fly over for a date – after all, you are a ginger-tolerant family with an understanding of British peculiarities!
