Geaux Gators!

This past weekend, Rob and I got to take a road trip to go see the Gators whoop up on LSU. We had a really good time spending time with friends and family. We stayed with the Windhams in Laurel, MS. They were the most gracious hosts! True Southern Hospitality!

We left Laurel around lunch time Saturday to head to Baton Rouge. It was a 3.5 hour trip, that was interrupted midway with a trip to Longhorn Steak House. We knew we better get a good meal, because it would be stadium food the rest of the day. The boys found Bass Pro, Gander Mountain and Cabelas along the way, but unfortunately for them, the Hunting Gods were not on their side. We didn't have enough time to stop and shop....YES!

We made it to the stadium with plenty of time to spare. We walked around and checked out the sights. And let me tell you, there were some sights! There was an abundance of trash talking all the way from the parking area to the stadium. They would not let up!

We got into the stadium and Rob and I met up with my parents. We had great seats, that were so great, they sold 3 tickets for every seat available! Needless to say, we stood the entire game.

Here is the view from our seats. That was one loud place. That is until we started beating them, and then......SILENCE!

Winning made the game even more fun! I have to tell you that the walk back to the car was the most peaceful stroll down the streets of Baton Rouge. Where were all of those trash talkers? We made it out very quickly, thanks to the witty mind of Elio. He came up with a strategy to get us the heck out of there. I think it was because he was so excited about his first ever trip to Waffle House.

We made it home Sunday night, after MANY hours in the car. But we had a great time and really enjoyed the company.

Now......Go Gators! Beat the Hogs!
