Boy, it's good to be home.

After being gone for 9 days, it feels really good to be home. And yes, this place does indeed feel like home. That fact is proven now. South Carolina is home.

To start where I left off...

Our car was broken. It's still broken but drivable. We are going to take it back to the repair shop sometime this week to get the other part of our problem taken care of. If we would have left it in the shop in Alabama it would have been Thursday or Friday before we would have gotten it back. There was no way Kent was going to be able to take that many days off work. So the mechanics fixed what needed to be fixed and said it would be fine to drive but don't put it off getting the rest of it fixed. Thankfully our warranty paid off and we were only out $50 instead of $1500.

I picked Kent up from the airport Friday and it was sooo good to see him. I missed having him around everyday to talk to and cut up with. I was all nervous seeing him again because of my new hair cut, but he said he really liked it. So that was nice to hear. We then went to P.F Chang's to eat. It was really good and we had a good time.

Saturday was the big game. Auburn football. Woot! We had the best time. We woke up to bad news of an 80% chance of rain. So we ran to Wal-Mart before picking Jon Kent up from my parents' where he spent the night and got some ponchos for just in case. We picked up Jon Kent and headed down to Auburn. We walked around for a bit, ate lunch, went to Tigerwalk (where it was ridiculously hot and Chizik was late so we left) and then went into the stadium. Our seats were great. We watched the teams warm up, watched all the pregame stuff and settled in to watch Auburn played. Jon Kent got antsy but after half time and getting some food and funnel cake in him he was good to go. We stayed the whole game and watched Auburn beat La Tech. WARRRR EAGLE! I got some really good pictures and we even got a couple of shots of the three of us. It was a great and memorable night! Oh and NO RAIN!

Sunday we went to church and spent time with family.

Today was a traveling day. We went and spent some time with my parents early this morning and then headed to Chick-fil-a to get our free chicken sandwiches.. along with fries, drinks and nuggets that we did pay for and spent some time with Kent's family. Then we headed the 230 some odd miles it takes to get back to our house. We quickly unpacked and settled in.

Tomorrow we get back into our routines and get geared up for soccer season in these here parts. Jon Kent will be our only "official" player this year. Zoey is technically too young to play, but since Kent and his boss will be the coaches she will probably be sneaked in to play.. lol. Shhh, it's a secret.

Enjoy the pictures!!

Sounds like a pretty great trip with the exception of the broken car. Boo on your car!!!

But seriously, is there anything better on a cool autumn day than college football? I think not. :)
