Last month we got to make a trip with our friends Ryan and Laura down to Gainesville for the Florida/UAB game. We thought it would be a great time to show our friends around Jax and Gaines-vegas and a fun game to go to since it was both of Josh's alma-maters :). We drove in late Friday night (as usual) stayed with my Mom Friday night. Saturday consisted of a full tour of Jacksonville and Gainesville, the game Saturday night and then staying with Josh's parents Saturday night.

During our tour of downton Jax - we remembered that Laura Street crossed Adams Street near the main library - we promptly headed that way, parked and had Laura Adams and Ryan Adams pose for these pictures - how cute!

Do you think there is a "Hewiett" street anywhere? If we find it... you better believe we will be posing for a picture like this one.

For lunch on Saturday, we got to eat at one of our favorite places in Jax - Mojo's BBQ. We met up with Ben, Jess and their sweet baby Charlotte. It was so good to hang out with the Whitworth's. Apparantly it is an extremely small world - Ben and Jess also grew up in Bham (like Ryan and Laura). Ben's family went to the same private school that Ryan and Laura went to - his sister was in their class and they were really good friends.

So glad we got to see the Whitworths - I miss them :(.

Outside Ben Hill Griffen Stadium - I don't think Josh and I have a picture like this one :)

In the swamp - do you spy two Auburn fans trying to blend in with their subtle tones of blue?

We had a lot of fun trying out our new camera on this trip - Josh and I just got a nice DSLR Canon camera and are still learning how to use it. This trip to Florida was the first time we have used it.

Needless to say, this game was a blowout (39-0). Poor UAB. This was before we lost our first and second string quarterbacks to injuries... our games lately have not been so pretty.

We were so excited about this trip and so glad that we got to spend time with good friends, see some great football and once again see our wonderful family.
