What a Weekend!

Happy New Year everyone! What better way to ring in the new year than on the beach with your best friend? The invasion of Jeff and Mary was awesome! We left on Friday and made great time. We stopped three times, two for gas and once because we wanted to shop at Priester's Pecans. If you've never been there, it's pretty good if you like pecans and candies. The best part is, we still made it from Chattanooga to Jacksonville in just under seven hours. Jennifer slept most of the way so I put the whip to her pony to see how she would do with the cruise set on 110 mph. Needless to say she did well, and we still averaged about 24mpg's which is awesome.

This was probably the most fun filled weekend we have had in a very long time, and it was a well deserved break from reality for all of us. Jeff and Mary were nice enough to let us spend all four nights with them at their awesome new house. We did most of the touristy things like the Alligator Farm and the outlet malls, and we spent our last day at the beach. It's hard to beat spending your last day on the beach throwing a football. The water was cold so we didn't swim, but you just can't beat spending the first few days of January on the beach in 70 degree weather.

Anyway, we had a great time and we are home. We have to go back to work tomorrow which I'm not very excited about but it's part of growing old. If how you spend New Years is a sign of things to come, this is going to be a fantastic year. I'll update with more later, but wanted to let everyone know that we are home and that Jeff and Mary rule for letting us invade their house for four days. Thanks guys!

Glad to hear you guys had a good time in FL. I went to the Alligator Farm when I was seven. I have a picture with my head in a real stuffed alligator's mouth...I thought that was hilarious at the time.

That is pretty funny, but they don't let you do that anymore. They have a raging gay guy that lets you take a picture holding a small alligator. We did one, but no stuffed alligators to be found.
