This weekend we ditched the boys and road tripped to Tuscon to see the Hawks play U of A.
What we saw of the state was just all dead and lame. Oh, and it was freaking HOT. I'm more of a non-scorching heat kind of person. Maybe Phoenix is better. But Tuscon blows chunks.
Here's a little bit of of our first get away since the dudes arrived:
Sorry Arizona, your welcome sign does NOT make me feel very welcome. Time to invest in something a little more aesthetically appealing.
(Pardon the dust) but this was pretty average for our whole trip. On the way home we actually saw it get up to 114. Why would anyone chose to live in that??
Pretty sunset as we arrived in Tuscon after a 7.5 hour drive through the desert wasteland.
However in the daylight, this is pretty much most of Tuscon. Dry. Dead. Boo.
The night before the game we were able to go out for a few drinks and kick back. Definitely needed a drink (or 3) after that drive.
The day of the game. We had a great time tailgating (inside of course) with hundreds of our closest Hawkeye friends.
Warm ups before the game. I didn't take any pics during the game because I was either pissed off or screaming and jumping up and down...and then just generally depressed at the end.
(We lost and played like crap.)
Hawks ready to take the field. (My favorite part of the game pretty much LOL)
Anyways, besides the crappy loss and the stupid desert, we had a good time! It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be to leave the boys at home. I think I just really needed a break.
And they sure had good time with Grandma :
