Lynchburg, football and family

This weekend, Matt and I drove down to Lynchburg, VA to visit Matt's cousin Brandon and his wife, Ashleigh. Brandon is the Quarterbacks coach/Passing game coordinator for the Liberty University football team. We arrived late friday night and stayed up until about 1am talking with Bran and Ash. We did a little shopping saturday then to the game in the afternoon. Liberty games are fun because the fans/students have a lot of spirit and energy. Sunday we woke up and started the drive back home. The car trip was fun....Virginia is beautiful in the fall...but we were glad when we got to take a pit-stop at Matt's other cousins' houses in Northern VA near DC. It was fun to catch up with the Streeters and the Wivells and of course get a kiss from almost 2-year-old Braden. Here he is in his Pirate costume for Halloween with his dad Jason. He kept saying "ARRRRRGG" and "walk the plank."

We left Ashburn to take Matt to the airport after that. Matt is in Kansas City this week until friday morning. I have plans to visit Laura in Baltimore, go shopping with friends, and do some projects around the house. The bed was very big last night....

Braden is so adorable! I love it that he ran around saying "ARRRG." :)

Wow, sorry you're husbandless this week. :( Remember the first time Jason went on a business trip? In three years, we had never spent a night apart, and it was so hard for me to get used to!! I hope it goes a little more smoothly for you. :)
