Homecoming Parade & Pep Rally

Tonight, Emma and I went on a date to the Razorback Homecoming Parade and Pep Rally. We met the Elleman's and Thompson's down on Dickson to watch the parade. Emma was decked out in her Razorback shirt, tiara and pom-poms, a triple-header for Homecoming, Cheerleading, & Football.

The entire walk from the car to the Walton Arts Center was full of compliments, pointing, smiling, and 1 proud Daddy. While we waited for everyone to get there and for the parade to start, the parade announcer was playing band music. Emma started dancing and shaking her pom-poms. 2 news stations (NBC / ABC) had reporters there, and both zeroed in on Emma. NBC got Emma saying "Woo Pig Sooie", and ABC interviewed me and Emma about why we were there and what we thought of the Hogs being ranked. ABC didn't even cover the event, but Emma's "Pig Sooie" got 2 seconds on NBC's news! She's famous!

After the parade, which was really fun, we all headed up to the Greek Theater for the Pep Rally. We got to dance and cheer with the band, the homecoming court, and the Alumni Cheerleaders (including Brooke). We left about halfway through, since Emma refused to take a nap and she had to potty. She was tired enough to fall asleep in the car on the way home, which is usually unheard of! It was a really fun date!
