My dad is visiting from Florida for the next few weeks! He got here last Tuesday
(thus, the lack of blog posts) and will be here for another week or so. This past weekend, Paul watched the girls so that my dad and I could head over to Annapolis for the Navy/Western Kentucky game. It. Was. So. Much. Fun!

We got there quite early and were met by Bobby at the front entrance of the Naval Academy. Bobby is in his second year there at the Academy and can you believe that I used to babysit him?!? He's 21 now and just as sharp as I always imagined he'd be; the exact kind of guy you'd imagine would be in attendance at such a prestigious academy such as the Naval Academy.

Bobby led us all around Annapolis and I was SHOCKED at how many people he knew. And not just academy students, but actual shop owners and residents! He was the perfect escort; so gentlemanly and never forgetting to introduce us to any of his acquaintances and friends.

And as luck would have it, I forgot my camera so I have NO pics of Annapolis or Bobby, but trust me, Annapolis is beautiful and Bobby is great!

Anyway, once we walked with Bobby back onto campus, we went our separate ways and Dad and I headed to the stadium to wait for kick-off.

The weather men called for light showers but the day had been so beautiful that I honestly didn't believe we'd see a drop of rain. I was wrong...

As soon as the game started, so did the rain. And I had NO jacket. It was cold, it was wet, it was miserable. So I, coming from an Air Force up-bringing, married to an Air Force member and an Air Force veteran myself, purchased a hoodie from the clothing concession with NAVY across the chest for a whopping $30! It did the trick though. I was warm and dry in minutes and very able to enjoy the game with my dad :)
