Garet and I decided a while back that we wanted to go to a Panther's football game this season. We looked at when they were playing at home... and when they would be playing the Redskins. Garet is from DC, so that was his favorite team growing up. So we figured out they were playing this past weekend, and Garet's sister and her husband said they wanted to come with us! So... we have been planning this trip for quite awhile!
We decided to keep it simple on Saturday. I learned how to make homemade cinnamon buns from Garet's mom!
There may or may not have been a mishap in the kitchen where one of our pans may or may not have ended up face down on the bottom of the oven..... so we had some smoke in the kitchen for a bit. Therefore we opened all the windows and doors... and we put Suzi in the basement. When we looked over we saw her tail poking out =)
It was FREEZING on Saturday... it made me really worried about the game the next day! Garet and Colin braved the cold and met one of Garet's friends at a park down the street. Matt is one of Garet's oldest friends! They didn't last too long (thank goodness! it was waaayy too cold!), then we headed to Garet's sisters for dinner.
The boys playing on their games =)
We were all bundled up and it was cold, but not too bad. The sun was out so it made it manageable! I was actually very nervous to wear Panther's attire... I didn't want people to pick on me. But once we got there, there were actually a LOT of Panther's fans! I fit right in =)
We arrived a couple hours early so we could tail gate. Pete was very prepared: grill, burgers, chips, drinks, table, tablecloth, condiments, chairs, football..... Oh we were set to go!
We headed back home on Monday, but first made a stop to see Garet's dad!
