Cincinnati, Day 1

Yesterday we drove from St. Augustine to Cincinnati. Not much to say about the trip, except I had motion sickness and we had to stop in a Walmart parking lot in Knoxville, Tennessee, so I could rest for a bit and we could get some medicine.

USA vs Honduras

The older kids skipped school today and we drove up to St. Paul for the USMNT vs Honduras. They are in World Cup qualifying right now and the US needs to get some wins. The won the game, but the weather was the biggest story today. It was 4 degrees when the game started, with an even colder windchill. We were all bundled up and I felt bad for the players. It was awesome to see the game and we will remember the experience.

Before the game we spent time together at Mall of America. We played a cellphone version of Marco Polo to help pass the time.
