Weekend in Valdosta

Last weekend, we spent Thursday through Sunday in Valodsta. It was really great and a much needed break from school. We also had not been back to Valodsta since we left almost a year ago. We spent Thursday sleeping for a bit (we didn't get to Valdosta until 2 am Thurs) and then the whole afternoon at Wesley getting to visit our friends! Then that night we spend the evening having dinner with our friends Lindsay and James and then CJ, Emily, and Alex. On Friday, we had lunch with Ben (one of Matt's groomsmen and college roommate) and Catherine. It was great to visit and of course to eat lunch at Masatos, the best Japanese restaurant ever. That afternoon, we just spent that time shopping for a wedding present for our friend Ryan and just resting. For dinner, we had Smok'n Pig (yes, I believe it should be spelled Smoke'n Pig, but it was good) with some of our old Wesley people. Then we went to Emily and Nina's house to just hang out and talk. Then on Saturday, my great friend Ryan from college got married to Raquel. It was a great ceremony and wonderful reception. It was also the first time since I graduated from college that my close friends from college (Jackson, Rachel, Ryan, Laura Lynn, Scott, adn me are all in the first picture below) have been together. We all lived across the street from each other for 2 years in college and grew very close and it was great to see each other. You can see the picture of us in the bottom. Then that evening we went to dinner and played Rockband at Rusty's house. It was so wonderful and then we returned to Wilmore on Sunday. On Sunday we also stopped to have brunch with my mom, brother, grandma, and granddaddy. Please pray for my granddaddy, he is sicker each day and is in a lot of pain. Below are pictures from the weekend. Enjoy!

College Roomies! I miss these girls and it was great to catch up!

So Kelly Johnson joined us at the wedding thanks to Photoshop!
Thanks to the husband for the help.

Finally, this is the Gnome that Matt's mom, Kathy, gave to us to welcome everyone to our home. Isn't he cute!
