Bell Center Tailgate Challenge

We enjoyed a wonderful day of yummy food, great fellowship, exploring Sloss Furnace and inflatables all at The Bell Center Tailgate Challenge. The Tailgate Challenge is an event celebrating the beginning of football season. Tents are sponsored by various organizations and all represent a college team. All proceeds from the event support The Bell Center. This year Preston's office sponsored a tent so of course the team we chose was Georgia Tech. Our friends Jennifer and Michael came over yesterday for the event. Michael and Preston were in charge of our tailgate food and they came up with BBQ Pork Dumplings. We each started cooking our BBQ Thursday night and Friday night we stayed up until 2:00am wrapping and steaming all 300 dumplings. It was lots of fun! The dumplings were a huge success. We had tons of repeat tasters and many asking for our recipe. Michael was our professional fryer at the event!!

Nathan and Owen really enjoyed hanging out with Grandparents. Logan had the best time exploring Sloss Furnace, especially the underground tunnel and jumping in the bounce house.

We all had a great time and are looking forward to making this an annual tradition.
