Back Home From Tennessee

We're back from vacation and no worse for the wear. Well, maybe just a little bit worse. Kellen's girlfriend Amber was sick with bronchitis over the weekend and by the time we left for home yesterday morning, three of us had sore throats and the sniffles. When I first woke up yesterday morning, I initially thought that this was the cause of my heavy head:
But as the day went on, I realized that I was coming down with a spring cold. It made for a VERY long seven hour drive home, let me tell you. I've almost forgiven Amber and her germs because she made this chocolate cake with peanut butter icing for the weekend.

I'll completely forgive her when she gives me the recipe.

We packed all the comforts of home, including Guitar Hero for those who simply couldn't be away from it for a weekend.
And we took a time out to watch The Office on Thursday night.
Here's the gang before they went horseback riding.
Drinking games abounded. I had no idea Jenga could be turned into a drinking game! And yes, of course we had to play beer pong. No photos of that fiasco. It got ugly, suffice it to say.
Most of the younger crowd went white water rafting on Sunday afternoon. I stayed behind to watch the wasps build their nests on the deck out back. It was actually rather relaxing to sit in the rocking chair and soak in nature.
All in all, it was a wonderful weekend, filled with abundant laughter and craziness. I so enjoy spending time with my family.
