So yes, we have lots of ties to the university. We used to take the kids to the Homecoming Parade when they were small, but we hadn't been back for a few years until last year, and then I took the kids to the parade, and then I took them on a tour of campus, and then we even went to the Homecoming game! It was really fun.
This year, we didn't have time to attend the Homecoming game, but the kids all wanted to go to the parade again. So here are some pictures of ISU Homecoming 2011!
|My little Redbirds! They are spelling ISU!|
|The ISU Marching Band. They always win lots of national awards.|
|The Homecoming King and Queen at the top of a fire engine.|
|Normal, Illinois is also home to Mitsubishi Motors US plant. This is a picture of the Mitsubishi Electric car - called the Mi-EV.|
|Oh, and a tractor. You can't have a parade in Illinois without having a tractor in it :)|
|The Prairie Pipes & Drums band. This was SO cool in person.|
