Saturday was the SEC opener for the Tide. We loaded up Saturday morning to head to Tuscaloosa. Traffic was a nightmare. We had to make one stop at John's exit to give him something. We ended up having to stop at a rest stop because someone couldn't hold it until we got there. Which if you know my dad is huge because growing up he would only stop one time on the way to the beach, a five hour drive. We finally made it. I think it took us close to two hours. Not fun. I was a little nervous because this was the first time in 10 years that we weren't hosting the tailgate. Luckily my cousin and his wife invited us to tailgate at their house and it worked out perfectly. they live almost the exact distance from the stadium as John's apartment. It was different being at a house that wasn't occupied by college kids but it was fun! I was also nervous that i was going to be the only "kid" there. Not that my parents aren't great but part of the fun of past tailgates have been all the people. Turns out I was all worried for nothing.
My sister and her husband came. She was so happy to see me.
