This past weekend I took my kids on a 2 hour drive south of home to Lexington, KY. I’ve started a tradition of taking my boys to the UGA/Kentucky football game because it’s pretty much the closest location to my house where Georgia plays. It was also my wife’s birthday weekend, so she had traveled down the day before to have a girl’s weekend.
