The husband and I went on a 33 hour road trip this weekend. The best part about road trips? GREAT Blog Fodder.
We had just passed Crawfordville, Georgia (where I enjoyed my DQ Dip Cone!) when my brother texted me that the game was canceled for the day, they would play a doubleheader on Sunday. Huh. Well, that sucked. But, what to do? Our hotel room was paid for, and Taylor was already in Auburn. Plus, I wanted to see my brother. So, we forged on down I-20.
We stayed at a real live motel, you know, the kind with the doors on the outside. Motels always remind me of my grandparents. They loved a motel. They would always bring along their travel bar. It looked something like this:
We didn't have a travel bar, but we do always travel with a cooler.
We had a great dinner at an Italian restaurant called, "Ma Fia's." Get it? My brother was chatty, which happens about as often as Haley's Comet. The food and company were excellent.
A Half Order of Mushroom Ravioli was too small for the Ju. I'm a full order kind of gal.
A baseball stadium is either the hottest or coldest place on the planet. On this day, it was cold and wet. The seats were wet and the wind was blowing, not what I call good baseball weather. But, it was good to be watching the Tigers (Missouri variety) with Taylor, Steven and HAD.
The best part? The good Tigers won. Both games of the Sunday doubleheader. We were only able to stay for the first game, as we had that 6 and 1/2 hour drive back home. But, it was worth it, rain and all. These baseball games bring our family together, even if only for 33 hours at a time.
Thanks for driving Dear!
