Spontaneous Big Orange Road Trip

Wow! Our weekend did not turn out at all like I thought it would. After Tennessee won their Sweet Sixteen game against Ohio State on Friday, Fred and I decided to take a road trip to St. Louis to watch the Vols play in the Elite Eight. We drove up Saturday after the egg hunt, spent the night and drove back last night after the game. As you may or may not know, Fred is a former UT basketball player; so, this is a BIG deal! Here are some pics from the trip:

St. Louis Arch
Busch Stadium (home of the St. Louis Cardinals)
Pregame at Over and Under (Tennessee Vols headquarters)
Shots from the gameUnfortunately Tennessee lost, but they played a GREAT game!

And here's a picture from our neighborhood Easter egg hunt that was a HUGE success. I think we had about 30 kids.

We had a great weekend! I am sad that I did miss my sister-in-law's baby shower, but she understands and I hope she loved her presents.

I'm starting to think orange is a good color for me. So, what did you do this weekend?

Great pics of St. Louis and y'all! I didn't know that he used to play ball for UT. That was a hard fought game. I had no clue how it was going to turn out!

That looks like so much fun! This was an exciting weekend for Vols basketball (even though we did lose!) I definitely think orange is a great color for you!

Have a great day!

What a fun road trip! I was pulling for TN. It was heartbreaking that they didn't win!
