Road Trip to Athens, Georgia

Last month John, the little ones, Daniel and I set off for the University of Georgia in  Athens, Georgia.

With the weddings and the slow economy, this little trip to Athens may end up being the only vacation that we get to take.

Abbey doesn't care where we go, as long as she gets to stay in a "hoe-tale".

She watched a lot of the "dv-go player"

Happy boy!

The trip was a success for Daniel in the pool. He cut 3 sec. off of 100 breast to swim a Jr. National time of 1:07.71, and he cut off another 3 seconds on his 200 to swim to acheive 2:28.55. He made it back to finals in both events. Making it to finals is no small accomplishment at this meet. The top 8 finalists in almost every event had their Olympic Trial cuts. Daniel is 3 seconds away from a Olympic trial cut in the 100 breast. He talked with several college coaches while he was there.

On the way home, we stopped by the see Beth in Charlotte. Greg was at work, so we just got to see Beth and Bella.

Me and my grand-baby dog!

All in all it was a nice little respite from the every day life at home. Daniel swam well, and we had some fun family times together!
