Lin & Joe with Diana

Yesterday was the big Illinois Band High School Band Festival. We went down to watch the Illini perform and I got to meet up with Lin (Duck & Wheel with String see previous post) and her hubby. We had some good laughs!
We also enjoyed watching the Marching Illini perform. The drumline & sousaphone line did a special performance. It was neat to be so close. I recorded this performance with the camera, but it came out all blurry. Darn!
When they marched off they decided to do an encore and I got to get some close shots of my son.
He was so excited afterward telling me that the crowd really LOVED them. MI has always gotten a HUGE crowd response, but it must really be cool to be on the field with fans who dream of being in your position cheering you on.

  1. I'm not sure which was more fun--meeting up with you or seeing those dancing sousaphones!! The Marching Illini never disappoint and it was exciting to sorta know someone out there on the field. :)

    Thanks for meeting up with us, Diana!

  2. Sounds like a fun time!
    Happy Halloween!
