Cornhuskin Parade

The kids and I went to Meredith for the parade for Cornhuskin parade.  For those that don't know, Meredith College is my alma mater.  It was the best four years being a student there.  Because we are an all women's college, we don't have a Homecoming.  Instead we have Cornhuskin.  It is a competition between the classes.  We compete in skit, hog calling, corn shucking, apple bobbing, tall tale, songs, sweatshirt design, can art, and more.  Everything culminates in Friday night.  To kick off the night there is a parade.  I love taking our kids back to campus.  It is a gorgeous campus.  I have always felt 100% safe there.  My kids can run around and everyone just ooo's and ahhh's over them.  And our current bonus for campus is our favorite babysitter/uncle's girlfriend is a student there. 
Zeke and Ben had a blast exploring and just running around
