ISU Tailgate

Finally had an opportunity to look inside the newly renovated ISU stadium this past Saturday during the pre-game tailgate.

The place looks very nice. Can't wait to see the Redbirds take on South Dakota next weekend.

We Care Twin Cities Half Marathon

Michele ran a 10K today alongside the participants of the We Care Twin Cities Half Marathon. Pictured with her is her good friend Tara who took part in the half marathon:

This is a shot of Michele as she crosses the starting line. That smile makes me wonder if she knows there is more than an hour's worth of running still ahead of her:

Amazingly enough, she crossed the finish line with the same smile. I'll never understand runners.

Up Up and Away

Stumbled upon this powered paraglider trike while walking with Cody today at Maxwell Park:

I have got to get me one of those!

College Visit - Western Illinois University

Today we paid a visit to Western Illinois University so Nick could take a closer look at their Engineering program.

On the plus side, we were very impressed with the engineering program as a whole, and especially with the chair of the engineering department. On the minus side, Nick thought the campus was spread out too much, and he wasn't happy with the meal options in the cafeteria.

Next on the college visit list - Southeast Missouri State in October.
