|Baby's first trip to The Swamp!!!|
It was the 30th anniversary of the Florida Dairy Farmers sponsoring Gator Athletics - the longest running sponsor - so the athletic department made a big to-do and honored the organization, including my 91-year-old Grandpa (who is still "dairying") and my Dad, who is currently serving on the board. I couldn't miss this so it was well worth the 6 hour drive from Columbia to Gainesville!
|My dad and the rest of the board were honored during the first quarter (that's them in the corner of the field)|
And of course, no trip to Gainesvegas would be complete without a stay at my bestie's house! I got to hang with Lesley and her husband Chris and kiddos, and we had a blast. Catching up in person is so much better than FaceTime or the phone!
A special treat was seeing my college roommate Grace on Sunday morning for breakfast! I haven't seen this girl in at least 5 years and she made a special trip from Orlando to Gainesville to see me. It's even more fun because she is also pregnant and our babies are due just 5 days apart! It's a race to see who will deliver first!
|Just like old times in Gainesville!|
Sadly, all fun weekends come to an end and I had to make the long trip home Sunday afternoon. Lucky for me, my brother rode back up with me to give this pregnant lady a break from driving!
Such a fun weekend of celebrations, family and old friendships!
