The Iowa Artist

Home of the Hawkeyes

Hawkeye football here is crazy - Iowans know how to support their team! People come in the night before a home game with RV's and camp out - tailgating starts early. Houses near the stadium sell parking spots on their front lawns. If you don't watch the games, during them is the perfect time to shop because everything is empty and everywhere you go it's a sea of black and yellow. We have yet to make it to a game, but hey, we have shirts! (Even the baby has one waiting for him - a sweet baby shower gift.)

To show our team spirit for our adopted city, Jared carved the Hawkeye into our pumpkin. Our friends, Joe and Angela, had us over for a pumpkin carving evening and the boys worked hard! (Angela and I roasted the delicious seeds!)

I was so impressed with our Hawkeye pumpkin - great job JD! (Joe's was cool too.) But seriously, who could doubt our loyalties now?

Go Hawkeyes! (Unless of course they play the Cougars or the Huskers...=)
