Home is where the heart is

After a crazy first week of being a pharmacist and lots of long hours, Nick and I packed up and headed east to see our families. We drove the 2 hours to my parents house and ended up there about 11:30 on Friday night, but we only made the late trip after I made my mom promise a big breakfast on Saturday morning...

Saturday morning came and we loaded down our bellies with lots of good home cooked breakfast foods before visiting my sister's in-laws to see the new baby. My brother-in-law (and sister too) are now the proud parents of a custom ordered 2010 Camaro. It is, most definitely, David's pride and joy that he has been waiting to receive since ordering it last year and being promised it would arrive this JANUARY. Was he excited? To say the least... it is gorgeous! I only wish I had a picture of the gorgeous inferno orange and black interior.

When we all had our turn of high speed trips down windy country roads to be jealous of his new toy, we made our way to the lake to have fun with David's other toys, the boat and jet ski.

My dad, trying on Nick's hat to shield his head from the killer rays.

I took lots of pictures, but knowing the way I would feel to see my bikini clad body on the wide world web, I am going to respect the wishes of my family and only put a couple of the safe ones on the blog...

David, tubing.

We had an absolute blast with beautiful weather and an almost empty lake. I am STILL so sore from holding on to the intertube - it was a wild ride! I couldn't care less if I was knocking Nick off the tube, I was doing my best to hold on for dear life ;)

On Sunday, we got to visit not only the Church of Christ my parents attend where I grew up in Prestonsburg {and where we got married}, but we also got to stop by for Sunday evening service to see our church family in Pikeville at the Church of Christ on Main Street where we attended before and after our first year of marriage. The Pikeville church even had a baseball game after services at the Y, so we got to go and catch up with everyone even more after services! WE MISS EVERYONE SO MUCH :(

We are so thankful that our parents' live only 20 minutes apart. Sunday night we spent the night at Nick's parents' house and got to hang out with Karen some more today before leaving. Nick's dad is on a job up north and wasn't home for our visit - We missed you, Bob! The weekend went by waaaay too fast, but I keep thinking how it truly felt like we were on vacation... our moms cooking all the food, no house cleaning or chores to do, and lots of fun with our favorite loved ones.

Now I've got to get back to icing my cupcakes - how else would I bribe the people at work to like the new pharmacist??
