Homecoming 2009

Stillwater, Oklahoma is the home of Oklahoma State University. Annually we have the homecoming game and parade. This is when most family and friends gather together to celebrate with various kinds of festivities.

It starts on a Friday night with a walk-around featuring fraternities and sororities dorm decorations in the theme of the year. This years theme is "Branded For Life." Not only are there decorated dorms with tissue paper class decks, but there are lots of booths of food and orange and black gift items. We go to see the class decks.

From left to right: Me, daughter, Sherrye, grandchildren Angel, Christian, Ally, and LaRyn.

On Saturday is the parade and the homecoming game. We always go to the parade, listen to the updates of the game. We root for our team but just don't buy the tickets.

OSU mascot is Pistol Pete and he is branding the MO wildcat!

Grandkids Christian and Angel checking out the floats.

At the parade we got to see Garth Brooks, Garth is a cool country singer who attended OSU for college. We saw Clydesdale's, bands and a few floats. Twenty years ago the parade had lots of floats but now they are far and few between.

This is Garth Brooks!

Even Snoopy made an appearance.
