W-E-S-T-E-R-N! Gooooooo Western!

The last few years, we have tried to make it back to Macomb at least once in the fall for a football game.  We've been able to meet our college friends for some of those years, but this year, it wasn't going to work out.  So, we looked at the schedule, found an open Saturday, and took off as a family to WIU.

Our first stop was lunch at Aurelio's -- our most favorite pizza place!  We were especially surprised to find out they offered their awesome lunch buffet on Saturday's.  It was super yummy!!  Before leaving, downtown, we stopped at Gumbart's and bought Cam a new shirt to wear to the game.

We got onto campus and hit the bookstore before walking down to the field.  It was just about halftime (and free after that) so we watched the band and headed in for the end of the game.  Hannah was most excited about seeing Rocky and was glad they got a picture together.  Since it was early in the season, WIU was playing Quincy, and won by a ton!  But we still had a great time!  After the game, we made a quick stop at the fitness center before walking back to the car.  It was a fun afternoon of showing the kids where Mommy & Daddy met and went to college.  I hope we can continue to make a yearly stop here.

When we left Macomb, we made a stop in Springfield to eat dinner and hang out with my cousin's family.  We always love a chance to visit with the Rutledges and we enjoyed a nice dinner and talking time.  So thankful for them and blessed to call them family!

It was getting late, but we made a super quick stop into Scheel's to get Cameron a new Packers shirt.  We didn't get to stay long, but we did a quick ferris wheel ride before they closed.

It was a whirlwind Saturday, but I wouldn't change it for anything.  We had a great day together!
