Visiting West Point

This past weekend, we went to West Point for the first time to see a football game: Northwestern v. Army.  West Point is only about an hour from where we live, so it was a nice day trip.

The weather was gorgeous...fall just came to NJ last Thursday night and we are enjoying it!  West Point is a beautiful campus, set on the Hudson River and the football game definitely had a different vibe to it.

Don't Usually See These at Football Games

One cool tradition that at the start of the game, they have is people jump out of a helicopter and parachute down onto the field.

Unfortunately, Northwestern ended up losing the game, which was kind of embarrassing as they should have won.  I'm still glad we went was a great way to spend a Saturday with some friends and football!
