Well, Mother Nature let me keep my promise to my fellow travelers - that if we had nice weather, we'd go outside and play football, in honor of both last week's Tennessee Titans and this week's Crimson Tide. We had nice weather, so we did play some highly improvisational touch football.
(Many thanks to everyone who explained my referee calls to me as we went along...)
However, before we did that, we did actually learn a little something about Alabama. We learned that their state nut is the pecan, their state flower is the camellia, and their state fruit is the peach.
Next, we learned about Helen Keller, who was born in Tuscumbia, Alabama in 1880, and who was the first deafblind person to graduate with a bachelor's degree from college.
But then, football.
Catch us next week as we wrap up our trip in sunny Florida!
