February 4th & 5th, 2011: The Saucedo Family Comes to Visit!
Friday night we all enjoyed dinner, talked, and played the game of LIFE (If any of you know what I'm talking about...Eric was the Kristina of the game! lol.). Saturday we walked on the river, then had lunch at Paula Deen's The Lady and Sons restaurant. I find it funny that the locals kind of disdain the place, but everyone else really wants to go there. After lunch, we headed out to Wormsloe State Historic Site for Colonial Faire and Muster. Basically, people dressed up and acted as if they were in colonial times. We got to see them set off the canons (which were very loud) and sell stuff like fox tails in their stores. We also got lost in the woods and weren't sure if we were going to find our way out, but luckily we picked a right path at a fork in the road...which saved us going down a three mile trail in the opposite direction we were looking to go. I would highly advise they put up some better trail markers or something. After we got "un-lost" we headed home to cook some humongo steaks for dinner. Mmm...and that was the end of the Saucedo's stay.

February 11th & 12th, 2011: Owen and Jenna's Wedding Festivities
My old roomie, Jenna, is now married and off on her honeymoon in St.Lucia. This past weekend had two whole days filled with wedding activities (and well...the actual wedding of course!). Friday consisted of the bridal luncheon/spa experience, rehearsal, and rehearsal dinner. Saturday we had the wedding day preparation, the wedding, and the reception. Everything turned out absolutely beautiful and I am so happy for the two of them.
Bridal luncheon/Spa Day: Family friends turned their garage into a spa...pretty awesome, huh?
