We kicked off the new year with a quick trip to Atlanta to watch the UCF Knights take on the Auburn Tigers in the 2018 Chic-Fil-A Peach Bowl. It turned out to be a long day, but oh so worth it as the Knights got a huge win and finished the season as the only undefeated team in college football.
Our flight was full of Knights fans heading up to Atlanta. It made for such a fun experience as soon as we arrived at the airport.
Mercedes-Benz Stadium was a short MARTA ride from the airport so we arrived at the stadium with plenty of time before kick-off at 12:30pm. Thankfully, we didn’t have to spend too much time outside since it was 19 degrees, but we did get to see a couple snow flurries. The stadium was unbelievable. It was incredibly nice and everything was reasonably priced.
Our seats were amazing. The game was crazy, intense, and so much fun. The UCF fans were insanely loud and the Auburn fans headed home early.
We all had our obligatory Chic-Fil-A sandwich and cheered on the Knights to victory. The end of the game celebrations were so much fun. After the game, we headed back to the airport to wait out our long delay and watch the other football games happening on New Year’s Day. We finally boarded our flight at 11:45pm and our heads hit the pillow about 2am. It was such a great experience and the long day was completely worth it to see a Knights win with great friends. A huge thanks to my parents for watching the kids while we snuck away for the day.
on friday, i toured the future site of ucf downtown.
tijuana flats for dinner with friends.
legos and pajamas. he’s in heaven.
post-church meal prep!
the nice weather has returned! beers and football on the veranda.
we were determined to get her tooth out today. daddy got it out on first try!
we had a very low key weekend, which is why there were very few photos documented. it was much needed.
how was your weekend?
kenley’s new glasses arrived and friday was her first day wearing them!
she’s not the only one getting new glasses. i got my warby parker box on friday and chose a cute pair to order.
we stayed at the reunion resort this weekend which put us very close to disney for a couple trips to the parks.
saturday afternoon we were at animal kingdom.
we weren’t entirely prepared for how cold it was.
kenley rode everest for the first time then went right back for more and rode it again with me.
on sunday, we went to epcot before heading home and met some friends!
after a lot of together time this weekend, kenley and i headed to magic kingdom while crosby and daddy played together at home. the kids definitely enjoyed some one-on-one time with each of us.
we met up with more friends!
she also rode space mountain for the first time this weekend. she’s quite the thrill seeker!
minnie ears for the girls. we had such a fun day together.
we had a great long weekend packed full of disney fun. how as your weekend?
My favorite photo floating around social media this year included the phrase “the bit between Christmas and the New Year when you don’t know what day it is or who you are”. I definitely felt that this year. It was a weird week coming back from Christmas in Sarasota on Tuesday, then going back to work the following Tuesday. We had a jam packed week and it honestly flew by!
Crosby spent most of his time out of school in his pajamas and the kids loved their new sleeping bag/pillow combos they got for Christmas. There was a lot of cartoon and movie watching done from them.
On Friday, Heather and I got our 26.2 tattoos and Michelle got her nose pierced! Kenley was pumped that Livie came over to play during that time. Also, don’t let my smiles fool you, that little sucker really hurt even though he was done in less than two minutes.
Greg and I snuck out for happy hour on Friday to celebrate Ryan’s new job!
On Saturday, we got to see our friends in from Montreal! I love seeing these kids together again around our table. They picked up right where they left off from their last visit in July. It was so good to catch up over Moscow mules and instant pot chili.
Greg worked a few days during the break, so we headed out to Light Up UCF on NYE to do some ice-skating while he was working. They also got me on the ferris wheel which I was not a fan of, but the views were pretty good.
Greg and I capped off our Christmas break with a trip to the Peach Bowl in Atlanta which I will share more about this week. Thankfully, my parents stayed until the 2nd and were able to watch the kiddos for the day. We had such a great break and were so thankful to see both of our families and lots of friends.
