Panther's Camp 09

We're blessed to live in a great area with lots of family activities.

Last year, as we were preparing to move here, we found out that the Carolina Panther's actually train at a local college - Wofford College.

It's a free event and so one day between house hunts we decided to check it out and boy am I glad we did. If you want to see those pics, click here.

Now, I'm hooked.
It's so fun to be able to watch these professional football players, that you normally only see on TV, training and practicing right in front of you.

This year when training time came, I checked out the calendar, grabbed a friend and her son and off we went. (G was thrilled - ha!)

Not only do we get to see these great athletes in person but it's a great opportunity for me to get in some good shutter time.

Come along with us to Panther's Training Camp '09: (Beware...picture overload)




The quarterback's came down and practiced right in front of where we were standing - that was probably my favorite part.







After practice, if you're lucky, you can get a few autographs. The boys did pretty well this year and B was able to add about 7 new names to his Panther football. He was so excited.






It was a fun and very hot day. Thanks to the Panther's for putting on a great show. Good luck this season!
