# homecoming 2014

Man, do I get behind with these posts! Let’s rewind things back to almost THREE weeks ago. *hanging head in shame*

Just like last year, my mom and Mike made the trek to Logan for Homecoming. This is turning out to be a really fun tradition. You’d think they were USU grads themselves, the way they embrace all the chaos and excitement.

Homecoming weekend for us is always a busy one. There’s the parade, the game, the events and this year….a concert. The night before the game Joe and I played a concert dedicated to the 75th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz. It was mostly a family concert, so lots of kids dressed as Elsa and Darth Vadar, but it was a fun time and I’m glad it gave my mom an opportunity to wear her infamous Concert Sweater.

She’s worn this sweater to every concert of mine for the last 18 years. Isn’t that incredible? It makes me laugh and we always joke about it, but really I find it very touching and sentimental. She knows that’s my jam.

The next day started early with the parade. Sorry for blinding you guys!

Another gorgeous day, just like last year. The band led the way:

We stood on the last block of the parade, so we saw a lot of tired performances from the kids, but here are some highlights from those still giving it their all:

Those crazy gymnasts doing flips and trampoline work were back. I swear, there are broken necks just waiting to happen here. MOVING vehicles, people! MOVING!

This dance team was especially fun:

I caught her at a weird moment. Speaking of weird, this guy was great. The kids were totally perplexed.

The game was a late one…kick-off at 8:15 Mountain Time…which is just plain crazy. We managed to stay up and enjoy the game, keeping each other warm:

Decked out in our gear. This was before the coats came out.

The band’s show was the music of Daft Punk — loooooved it. (The first two shots are from pre-game.)
