the weekend

we had a great weekend. it's been awhile since justin's been home for a weekend, so we took full advantage. after the wedding on friday night, we both went our separate ways to hang out with friends. we were both out until 1:30 or 2:00 am! by the time we went to bed, it was pretty late. i woke up at about 9:45 on saturday, but we didn't get out of bed until noon! it was great to sleep in and just relax. when we got up we went out to the lake for a few hours. it was awesome! there we no one out there, literally. no one. the forecast was for scattered thunderstorms and i think it scared people away. it did rain on us a little bit at the beginning, but then the sun came out and it was beautiful! it water was perfect. we went a little farther down the bank than we normally do and it was a great spot. riley had a grand ol time. she wouldn't stop swimming unless we made her go to the bank and rest.

after an afternoon at the lake i was craving s'mores!! well usually when we make them, we have to do it in the microwave because we have no place to have a fire. well i really wanted fire s'mores, because they taste so much better and the marshmallows have that crusty outside. well after calling around to our friends, we couldn't find anywhere to go. so i decided that candles would work just as well. so we set up candles on an old folding chair on the back porch and roasted away. they were delicious!

after church on sunday and a lazy afternoon, we decided to go to the drive-in in kentucky that we weren't able to go to for our anniversary. hancock was playing, so we decided to drive on up. you'd think kentucky would be a long ways away, but it took us maaybe 45 minutes. and it was such a beautiful drive. we had to stop to ask directions, because google maps told us to turn the wrong way. i ran into the gas station to ask where the drive in was...

me: how do you get to the drive-in?

hick gas station attendant: welp, ya go out hare to the lat and tarn rat. then ya go bout 4 mile and it's on yar lef.
translation: well, you go to the light and turn right. go 4 miles and it's on the left.

me: thanks (thinking: wow! we're SO in kentucky)

so we made it. it was so much fun. especially the little concession stand advertisement. it was really, really old. like 50's old and so awesome. justin took a little video of it and if i ever figure out how to post video's on this, i will. we had a great time!

I think You will always be AD to me, even though I didn't know you before you were married and I have not a thing against Justin. AD is just what rolls through the mind. Thought you should know.
