Well busy has really been the name of the game.... Fourth of July weekend started out great. We had a wonderful time with the Cross's. Ryan and Lindsey were such great hosts. Saturday morning we just spent laying around watching tv. Saturday afternoon we went on a 5 mile hike in the National Forest. Jane had a great time!!! Sunday we went to church and then made our way to Bryan and Adrienne's for some 4th of July fun. We slow cooked ribs and played games. We had a great fireworks show that night. Then Monday, we went down the river with Ryan and Lindsey. Goodness it was a great weekend!!!

This past weekend... we went to Crestview Friday night. Hunter ordered his bicycle and when it came in it was defective. So we had to make a trip to exchange it. Since we were going to be in Crestview we decided to check out the new movie theatre. We wanted to see Despicable Me in 3D!!! It was AWESOME!!! We both loved the movie...and it was our first 3D movie. Saturday we went on a morning bike ride. I ALMOST died. Not really but I thought it was going to kill me... I am the most out of shape person EVER!!! It was great though. Then I met Adreinne at the movies here in Andalusia and saw Eclipse. LOVED IT!!! Then she and I went back to her house to watch Twilight and New Moon again. Sunday we were just plain lazy. We went to church and then watched the World Cup. GO SPAIN!! I only cheered for them because there were so many CUTE guys on the team. When the US got knocked out that was how I decided who I was pulling for... by who had the cutest guys. It worked!! Anyway, enough about that. Then, we fried some quail and made some peas and cornbread. I love spending the weekends with my husband. I love him so......

Busy Weekend!!

Well last weekend was a pretty busy weekend. First, Sara Catherine spent the night with us Friday night. It wasn't easy though, she later in the evening said she didn't want to stay the night and she wanted her mommy to come get her...but I wasn't willing to give up. I told her okay, and then proceeded to let her fall asleep watching a movie. SUCCESS!!! I moved her into the bed and she slept the whole night. She woke up the next morning so proud of herself for staying the night. We had a great time. Saturday, Hunter and I went to Pensacola to meet up with my sister and get my bridesmaids dress. Kinda a disaster... they discontinued the dress she picked out six months ago!!!! I calmed her down and we just picked out another one. Luckily no one else had bought there dress or we would have been in big trouble. Then we went to a restaurant across the street and had a few drinks and socialized. We met up with our parents at the hotel, before heading to McGuire's. Now I can never fully describe to you how much my parents love that place. They would probably wait 3 hours just for a table to sit up by the stage. The food was great and the beer was better. Luckily, that night Rich was the entertainer. I have to admit he is pretty funny. We stayed at McGuire's till about 1:00 am. That is about as late as I can stay up these days. We went back to the hotel to sleep. My parents on the other hand went to a bar next to our hotel and sang karaoke. CRAZY!!! The next morning we all went to Cracker Barrel for some breakfast/lunch. YUM!!! During all this madness I also took my real estate salespersons exam.... and I PASSED!!!! So, a busy but a very good weekend indeed!

Rich and the Boston Boys.... so funny
Mom, Michael, Mark and Jeannie

Me and my sweet hubs

Libbi and her soon to be.

Well this past weekend was Third Sunday. To those who don't know, that is a McKathan/Cross family reunion. It was so much fun. Hunter and I really look forward to it every year. I really love Hunter's family. All 400 of them. haa... They have all welcomed me into the family with open arms. They are all so sweet. Not to mention the food is amazing. We are talking about all the fried chicken you can eat, and fresh vegetables straight from the garden. AMAZING!!! The only complaint we ever have is that it is so HOT, but hey small price to pay. This year was pretty interesting because a traveler just happened upon our big group Saturday evening. His name was Simon and he was from Quebec. He has been walking for a year and a half. He started in Canada and has walked all the way to Andalusia. His goal he said was to walk to Key West. He is 30 years old and has an engineering degree. We asked him why he was doing this and his reponse was that he wasn't being challenged enough so he decided to go and find a challenge. WOW!!! He was a super nice guy. We fed him lots of food and he hung out with us for several hours. I asked him what he was going to do when he got to Key West and he said "walk back". Then he was on his way. I can not imagine ever being able to just drop everything and do that. He was a really happy fella though.

I met a bunch of family that I haven't gotten to meet yet. Such sweet people. I regret to admit that I didn't take a single picture though!!!! I am very mad at myself. Sorry!!

I forgot to mention I did get to skype with my sweet friend Beth last night/morning!!! She is in South Korea teaching English to children. It was so cool and I am really glad I got to talk to her. I miss her and Fiance so much!!!

Here lately...

Last weekend we went to watch SC in her first dance recital. I can say one thing she sure was cute!! P.S. my husband is pretty handsome. I am one lucky girl!!!

I haven't had a whole lot to comment on lately. Things have been pretty boring. I have been spending most of my time studying for the real estate exam, I am hopefully taking next week. I am extemely excited to hopefully pass this test and be done with this class!!! It has been a real struggle to make it through a 4 hour Monday night class after 8 hours of work. It makes for a long day!!! 3rd Sunday is next weekend, which is pretty exciting. For those of you who don't know, 3rd Sunday is the McKathan/Cross family reunion. It is pretty fun. The food is great and the family is even better!! I know it is going to be extemely HOT, so I am trying to mentally prepare myself for a weekend full of major sweating!!
