Did you notice I was gone? Probably not, but that’s ok.
If you have been reading my blog for a while, you may know that we are big UCF football fans. Well, UCF was in the Peach Bowl in Atlanta GA on New Years Day. So, Richard and I got the boys, well and us, tickets to the game. This was one of their Christmas presents.
So we loading into the car on Thursday, December 28th and headed to GA. We took two days to drive down stopping in Knoxville, TN on Thursday night. We then traveled on to Atlanta from there.
While in TN, we went and did some sight seeing and then did more in Atlanta. More blog posts to follow with pictures and information about the fun and interesting sights along the way. I still have to download all the pictures off both camera and the phones.
New Years Day found us waking up to cold and snow in Atlanta, but with so much excitement. We were ready to go cheer on the Knights. When we lived in Orlando, FL we had season tickets to the UCF football games. Richard and I had them for 12 year and the boys had them for 3 or 4. It was such a part of our fall life in Orlando. It felt great to be back in a stadium cheering on the team.
The game was fantastic, we could not have asked for a better end to the perfect season. UCF went undefeated this season. We may not always get the respect we deserve from the “big schools”, but we sure showed up and played a great game. A season of 13-0 taking out a team ranked 7 who beat not 1, but 2 teams who had been ranked #1.
While it was an 11 hour drive both ways, and the tickets were on the expensive side, it was so worth seeing the boys excitement when they found out we got them tickets and even more when the team won.
So we are now back to our regular lives. I’m off to do laundry, pick up the dog and do grocery shopping today, but I wanted to stop off on my blog and say… I’m home! And I will be back with my regular blog posts.
Stay tuned for posts about The Lost Sea in TN, seeing a 6 ft skillet, Atlanta’s aquarium and The World of Coke in Atlanta… I promise it will be worth it!
