Penn State vs. Michigan State

Saturday fall finally hit in PA - it was total football weather!  We got to State College on Thursday night and it was still a little sticky, by the time we woke up on Friday it was the nicest weather and Saturday was no different, once the rain cleared up the sun popped out and it was a nice cool day.

With Tatum's first birthday coming up this week, we started off the celebrations at the tailgate with a cake, balloons and some of his favorite foods.  At our last tailgate (that he went to) he hadn't started walking yet so he had a great time showing off and wobbling around the tailgate.

We had close family friends in town to join us as well as other family members which made for a great group.  We went with anything hot - potato soup, grilling hot dogs and burgers and a few dips to go with Tatum's birthday cake! 

He had his first bite.. of many cakes this week and loved the attention when we sang "Happy Birthday" to him.

This was the first tailgate so far that we needed to warm up a little bit in the car, but we didn't mind because it was a perfect Saturday.

It was a great game until the end... just like the previous game and just like last year - same two losses right in a row.  It was heartbreaking but we're looking forward to the rest of our home games and tailgates this year.

Tatum who can sleep anywhere fell asleep right when we got into the stadium and then was pretty attentive the rest of the game... he continues to love football.
