What a Week!!

Well, we made it to Kentucky safely and let me say for the record that I miss living there and maybe one day, if it is the Lord's will, we will return. We were blessed with a wonderful week of time spent with friends or should I say family, since we consider our friends in KY our family. We spent the week mainly relaxing and catching up on old times, playing spoons, eating at some of our favorite restaurants and for me, SCRAPBOOKING. Have I ever said that I have the greatest husband. Who else would pack his wife's scrapbooking bags in their van and drive 636 miles so that she could turn around and spend time scrapbooking with some of her friends. Between scrapbooking on several different days with my friends, Alicia and I were able to stay up late and scrapbook every night but one. It was awesome in fact I was able to start and finish our Washington DC trip (30 pages total). WOO HOO!!

On Saturday, the kids called their friends while I scrapbooked with several of my scrapbook buddies. Sunday, we attended GWP and saw lots of our church family. We meet a great couple for lunch at Mancino's where we ran into several more friends, which was unexpected. Sunday night after church we meet up with our kids and enjoyed supper at Culver's with the Johnson's. Unfortunately on Monday, Phillip had to take me to the doctor so that I could get a shot for a horrible migraine that started on Sunday. After returning me back to Alicia's so that I could sleep it off, he took the kids to an afternoon movie, he's such an awesome dad. By the way I am so sorry that I missed spending time with everyone that came over on Monday. Tuesday, was another scrapbook day for me with my friends, while Jason, Phillip and Jonah head to the gym for some swimming and a little work out. Phillip took Jonah to the Corvette museum on Wednesday, something that Jonah always wanted to do but we never got around to taking him while we lived in KY. Courtney and I both got our hair cut, in fact I was joking with Pam (our hairstylist) about driving so far for her to cut our hair. On Thursday, we spent a great evening enjoying spoons and blacken pork chops, sorry about the finger nail, Courtney P. And through out the week, Jonah and Courtney were able to spend time with their friends and even spent a few nights away from us with their friends. I wish that we had been able to spend more time with everyone and I am sad that we could not see everyone. We love all of our BG family and hopefully we see everyone again this summer.

The whole trip was refreshing and enjoyable. I was really sad when we pulled onto to 65 this afternoon to head south. I already miss everyone!! We've stopped in Atlanta for the night, Phillip and I wanted to do a little shopping at IKEA. What an awesome store, but a little overwhelming. Hopefully by tomorrow night we will be back in Florida. I can't wait to see Rascal, I miss his kisses.
