On Friday evening we loaded up and drove North to go home for the weekend.
God shared a beautiful sunset with us on our way and watching it made the time go by so much faster.
Sanford would switch back and forth between our laps while Bayla and Beau happily rode in the cargo area.
I may be the only one who feels this way, but I don't think you should be able to pull this sort of "train" going down the road without some sort of a special license. A dooly truck pulling a large horse trailer pulling another trailer with a golf cart on it... how do you even begin to back up something like that?
There isn't much on I-16, which I am grateful for because the traffic is never too congested.
Approaching Atlanta means we are in the home stretch!! Only 50 more minutes until we get to Cumming!
We made plans to have lunch at Maggiano's in Buckhead on Saturday before tailgating and going to the UGA season opener against Boise State, which was held at the Georgia Dome/Chick-Fil-A Bowl.
We had a phenomenal lunch, as is expected when we go to Maggiano's.
A HUGE THANK YOU to Brandon's parents for a wonderful meal!
(We did the Family Style dining, which means we had a ton of food and the table was a little crammed, so I apologize for the food pictures not being "just right" :)
The four of us in our Dawg gear!
shrimp and crab tropheo
crab and shrimp cannelloni
beef medallions with mashed potatoes
the very best cheesecake in the entire world-no lie-sorry Cheesecake Factory!
chocolate zucotta cake-unbelievable!
We drove past the Varsity, which is an Atlanta original!!
It really is a neat experience if you ever get the opportunity to eat there.
It had been a while since these two country bumpkins had seen sky scrapers.
Thank the Lord the parking pass Brandon's dad got was in the deck connecting to the Georgia Dome!
Brandon and I ventured out to go and visit some friends at their tailgate while we were there.
going into the Dome
The Dome has a really neat tribute to all the of the Georgia High School football teams...a huge wall with all the helmets of each school.
I found my Alma Mater....Lumpkin County Indians!
We found Brandon's Alma Mater, too...North Forsyth Raiders! He wore this helmet well :)
This is for my Ole Miss blogger friends...they had your game on in the women's restroom at the Dome. I thought it was funny :)
Everything was going really well pre-game...
even Herschel Walker made an appearance!
From there the game went South...very disappointing.
Some changes definitely need to be made on the coaching staff, in our humble opinions.
We lost to Boise State 21-35.
We still had a great time despite the loss. There is no telling what next week will bring when we meet "Between the Hedges" to face South Carolina.
I hope your SEC team performed better than ours!!
