Eric and I were blessed to go to Arizona for the BCS Championship Game. We stayed with a sweet friend, Brandon, from our days at Auburn and from working at the JH Ranch. Much of the fun from the trip was catching up with Brandon, his brother, and a host of house guests that stayed there too.
After changing our flights so that we would miss the snow that hit Huntsville, we left from Nashville on separate planes and hoped we would both arrive in time to see the game. Since I left first, I took the tickets:) If eric didn’t make it, we were going to sell his and pay for our kids’ college 🙂
All went so well and we both made it!
We were sitting near friends and the Auburn band.
It felt like we were students in the Student Section again. My roommate,Beth, from my days of living in Birmingham met us there and we spent two whole days together.
My mom and my in-laws kept our children-which ended up being more than they bargained for, I am sure. Nothing like cancelled school to make babysitting last longer. My aunt Donna shuttled me to the airport before sunrise and braved icy roads and snow to pick us up when we returned. Unbelievable support from our sweet family. And to top it all off they were genuinely excited for us. It just made it all the sweeter.
