a weekend at the lake

me & LP at the crackerbarrel

me & Bryan at the house

Bryan and I had a great weekend visiting with friends and family! Friday, after work, we drove to TN, stopping by Heather&Tyson's on the way for some delicious chili & dairyqueen, then went on to Memphis (and stayed up talking about demons and telling personal ghost stories with my sisters & Chase--bad idea, i don't think any of us slept that night, haha). Saturday we got up early to head to Pickwick Lake with my family, the Marts, Chase and David. It was So hot--105 degrees, record temperatures!--but the water felt great and none of us got burnt (SPF 90 is my friend). I didn't get a lot of pictures--I opted to leave my camera at the house rather than bring it to the lake, which turns out was the best choice since pretty much everything was soaked by the end of the day. It was, like always, really great to hang out with my sisters again. Of course, totally unfair how they've both ended up so tall, tan, and beautiful, next to my short pale self. At the lake they were like "you're white as a vampire....but that's ok, since vampires are in right now." and I was voted "whitest person on the boat" with David coming in second, Bryan a close third. Anyways, Sunday we had lunch with Gramma&Granpa at the Crackerbarrel, saw Inception with the rest of the family (great movie!), then headed home. We didn't get in until midnight, so I'm seriously needing some caffeine right now. Luckily, my workplace should be pretty quiet (as usual) the next few days, so a half-asleep-monday won't hurt.
