Weekending in Jacksonville, FL

We took a quick trip down to Jacksonville, FL this weekend to see the Jacksonville University-Stetson game.
 Their marching band was so small! It was cool to see the color guard using rifles. I made rifle squad my freshman year of high school (only freshman to make it!) and have always enjoyed seeing color guards use them.
 My kids, Mom and me heading out after the game... next stop:
 We have a Krispy Kreme in Charleston but it is 30 minutes from my house so I was super excited to find one right outside the gates of the university.

Sunday morning, I woke up around 2:30 and was peeing blood so I drove myself to the ER closest to my Mom's house. It is brand new so I was one of two people in the entire ER.
 I was in and out and back to my Mom's by 4:30 am. I slept in until 11 or so and then got the kids packed up and headed back to South Carolina. I was surprised that traffic wasn't crazy since I-95 is still shut down for about 20 miles near I-26. We passed over the Edisto River which is about 6 feet over the flood plain but hasn't made it over the bridge and roadway. It was sad to see so many homes surrounded by water.  Please continue to pray for those dealing with flood damage!

Linking up with Ashley and Biana today :)
