GREAT weekend!

Jess and I had a much needed great weekend. It was actually a 4 day weekend. She had 4 days off in a row and I was all caught up on work (for the time being). Thursday was a fairly lazy day around the house and the first half of Friday was more of the relaxing same. Friday night (or even late afternoon), we went out to Happy Hour with some friends for $3 drinks and appetizers! That was pretty fun and then we came back to our house for more drinking, some board games, and just hanging out. We also had a ton of Starburst!

April 30th, 2010 - Day 337

Saturday morning, we has a late morning wedding to go to for one of our closest and long time friend, Amanda. We were so happy for her and she was beautiful. It was such a wonderful time and for a normally happy person, I had never seen her happier.

May 1st, 2010 - Day 338

Check out the rest of the set if you can because I had a hard time deciding!

We spent the rest of the evening relaxing at home, the first Saturday night where just the two of us relaxed at home in FOREVER!

This morning, we got up early and drove out of town with our friends Brandon and Yvete. We initially planned on driving to a small town called Jackson and doing thing things like shopping at antique stores and looking for hidden treasures. When we drove through, stores seemed closed still so we kept on going further. We ended up at Moaning Caverns, which only Jess had done. We had a great time and I was so proud of Jess climbing up and down like 10-15+ stories of stairs with her bad knee. She was really a trooper. After that, the three of them did the zip line 1500 feet. I didn't because I hate heights! It really was a fun trip!

May 2nd, 2010 - Day 339

Be sure to check out the rest if the pics here including pictures of the cave and the zip line.

And as a bonus, here is a video of the zip line!

A great weekend indeed!

Sounds great! I used to live in Angels Camp in Calaveras County. Such pretty country.

Sounds like you guys had a great long weekend :-)
I think I would probably have to skip the zipline too with my fear of heights, but it would be fun to watch other people do it.

I'm so glad you guys were able to enjoy the weekend. It really has been such a long time for the two of you.

What a fun weekend! the zipline is something I have always thought I would like to try but after seeing the video I'm a little hesitant. Weird - one would think it is just the opposite.

Anyway - great pics.

It was a GREAT weekend but went by WAY too fast! I loved everything about it - our relaxing Thursday and Friday morning, happy hour and games with friends Friday night, Amanda's beautiful wedding Saturday morning, our relaxing Saturday evening, and our busy but action packed Sunday. I did 468 stairs at that cavern and didn't complain once (but am most certainly paying the price today!) And I LOVED the zip line! I am most definitely all over that the next time the opportunity presents itself. Thank you for the wonderful pictures to remember a wonderful long weekend.

Sounds like a fun weekend! Thanks for sharing the zip line video. And the wedding photography is excellent - beautiful, classy shots. To me it's evident that you could make your living this way and you'd never starve. And I really like the Starburst photo. A cool and eclectic subject to photograph.

My word verification is "joyful." How about that?
