Road Trips and Football

Thursday night, my dad called me and told us to break out the air mattress because he was coming down for the weekend.  Whoo hoo!  He got to town on Friday evening and on Saturday, we spent the day on the coast, visiting with my grandma, and enjoying lunch at a place, I’ve been going to for 32 years, El’s.  :)

We brought Hunter to the coast with us and I think he has the best time of all.  We were able to play fetch (we don’t have a yard, so this was a GIFT), he got up close and personal with some ducks and chickens,  and we even took him to Bogue Sound and let him go swimming.  I think it’s safe to say he had the best day, ever.

I got some cute video of him chasing some shells in the water.  This was the first time we’d ever taken him swimming and it was so fun to see him bound in and out of the water.  He was whooped at the end of the day and slept the entire two hours in the car on the way home, which never happens.  Good day.

The Redskins played the Rams today, so that meant we had to trek to a bar to watch the game.  We got spoiled when the game was aired on TV last weekend, so we went to Tobacco Road in Raleigh because it’s where one of the biggest Redskins fan groups meet.  I’ve never really been a  big fan of watching football in bars, (I hate it when people get wasted and get stupid)  but it was fun.  A little intense, but fun.

When the Skins would score, the music would blare and everyone would sing along to “Hail to the Redskins.”  Even though they ended up losing the game, it was fun to watch with other people who love our team so much.  We’ll definitely go back.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

  1. Loving the RGIII shirt! Woot! We’re not really Redskins fans, but we have enjoyed watching him play! Also, I agree that Hunter had the best day ever! Splashing around in the water and playing in the backyard. Sounds good to me. :)
