First Friday

We had a crazy busy but fun weekend in Clemson as it is commonly said there is just something in these hills. I loved being a Tiger when I was in school at Clemson. However I think I have become a bigger fan since Aaron and I moved back almost 4 years ago.

We started our crazy weekend by going to the annual First Friday Parade. The twins seemed to enjoy the festivities and they got to practice their C-L-E-M-S-O-N in cadence count many times. We even got in a few WooHoos against daddy's wishes. 

Ready for the parade to start

One of the sororities that marched in the parade. The theme was the '80s I think.

After the parade we headed over to the soccer field for the Men's game against the University of South Carolina-Clemson's big rival. It was an unbelievable crowd. They were hoping to get over 7,000 people in attendance to break the record-counts came in at 7,324. Needless to say there was standing room only.

 The Tigers pulled off the win and beat the Gamecocks 2-0. It was a great start to what will hopefully be a great year for the men. The twins were great through this all they spent sometime sleeping in the stroller and sometime just hanging out in the baby b'journs. This year they had the parade finish at the soccer stadium so they had the winning float announcement at halftime. I think we found one sorority that Riggs will not join at Clemson. There was a large group right behind us and every time they were called they screamed loudly-which made Riggs scream loudly as well. She was not impressed by them at all.

Also at half time they renamed the stadium to honor the first men's coach who won 2 national championships during his time. So now it is historic Riggs field at Ibrahim stadium.

This was a great evening for the entire family it is one that might become a yearly tradition for the Galloways!
