What fun it is to attend a College Alumni Home Coming

Upon arrival we saw the festive autumn displays and the volunteer workers in their tee shirts.
The banners were hung and the campus looked like an Octoberfest.

Attended my annual Alumni Homecoming at Rhode Island College in Providence today with John. Mark and Buddy. "Boy" does 1966 and 1972 seem so long ago. I loved my college years I had 2 majors, Education and Art. As we arrived there were so many people and cars we parked near the new softball field behind the Library. There were tents set up along the mall area of the campus where there were sponsor booths and activities for the children and adults. This sign directed us to fabulous all you could eat barbeque feast. I picked up our complimentary alumni tickets and had our hands stamped so we could get our food. There were the standard hot dogs and hamburgers and vegi burgers (which was good) and all the trimmings and oreo cookies, Lorna Doones, chocolate chip, potato chips and plenty of cans of soda and bottles of water. Seconds and thirds allowed.

Mark and I had so much fun at the pumpkin painting table. We were given a pumpkin and told to have FUN.

As the time passed quickly, it was cleanup time and time to leave. What memories we created today and now we have 2 little pumpkins for my 2 lil pumpkins, Nolan and Braydon who will be arriving shortly to Rhode Island (October 9th) to stay with Grandma Kathleen, Poppy John, Uncle Mark and Buddy while their Mommy and Daddy go to New Hampshire for a Umass friend's wedding.

It looks like you all had a lot of fun! The boys can't wait to see the pumpkins in person.
