UT

A few weekends ago, Joshua and I headed up to Knoxville to watch the Vols play Ohio. We had an absolute blast! I love taking my little man to a game and creating special memories for the two of us.

I have to admit, I almost turned around and drove back home after being on the road for about 30 minutes. It was pouring down rain! I hydroplaned about 3 times in 30 minutes and saw a truck skid across 3 lanes of traffic into the ditch. I have a big fear of car crashes and the rain was coming down so hard that I did not think that I could drive all the way to Knoxville in the rain. I had already accepted the fact that we were going to get drenched and actually considered it an honor to take my son to a football game even though we were going to be soaked to the bone.

Joshua talked and talked and talked the entire way. Around Chattanooga he got really quiet and I sneaked a peak to see my little man sound asleep. We arrived in Knoxville, walked to the stadium and couldn't believe our seats! They were incredible! We were 3 rows up from the bottom! Joshua sat wide eyed! We decided to hit up the team store and grab a quick bite to eat before returning to our seats. Once we were back in our seats, not a SINGLE drop of rain fell the rest of the evening! It was amazing! And, we won!

Jason got us a hotel in Knoxville for the night. I was so thankful to not have to drive back home at 10:00 at night. Joshua had to keep things a little interesting in the hotel, so he turned on the heater and that made the smoke detector go off in our room. It took me a minute to really register what it was (I almost bolted out of the room and down the fire escape), but apparently some dust had settled on the unit and caused the smoke detector to go off. He lasted in his big bed about 5 minutes, before snuggling up with me for the night.

We had such a great time! Go Vols!
