So this is going to be a rare post with very few pictures of Ben. I KNOW- CRAZY!!
This past weekend we went to Tennessee for the Florida- Tennessee Game - GO GATORS!
We rented a cabin near Craig's dad in Townsend with our friends Jason and Katherine. For the same price as getting a hotel in Knoxville we were able to get a 2 bed 2 bath cabin with a screened in porch, it also had a full kitchen, grill, and a pool table but we weren't at the cabin enough to enjoy much of that.
I have to say I am very thankful for how well Ben travels. He is a trooper. The drive is about 3.5 hours which usually works out just about right as far as feeding him and a nap.
We got in late Friday night and got up Saturday got our stuff together and dropped Ben off with Craig's dad and Carol around 9:30a and headed to Maryville to go to Kroger and pick up our supplies for Tailgating. Traffic wasn't bad and we were set up for the tailgate by 11. We grilled bratwurst and chicken. The temps weren't too hot but the sun was beating down, there wasn't a cloud in the sky.
Then we headed closer to the stadium to meet up with one of Jason's friends.
Our seats were about 5 rows from the top, the only plus (besides being inside Neyland stadium to see the Gators win the game) was there was a breeze from the water.
On the way back to the cabin from the game, we saw this car leaving...
I've picked up a few new toys for Ben, he's a fan of the Gator on wheels, might rival the Smokey car above...
He's starting to sit up on his own for a few seconds here or there, but since he doesn't sit still much longer than that he leans back and falls over.
His gums are bothering him and he has a little runny nose. I'm beginning to think this whole teething thing is a joke. So until I see one it's that his gums are bothering him.
