Suitey Reunion!

Shawn, Elizabeth, Bill, Erin, Matt, Bethany, Philip, and Julie

Labor Day weekend, Philip and I met up with my three college suitemates and their significant others. This is our second annual such get-together, and (according to Philip) our last one that will occur on Labor Day weekend. Who travels out of town to a city that doesn't even carry the Alabama game on opening weekend? Especially for Saban's first game? I know, I know, I've heard all about it. :) I think Memorial Day trips may be the way to go from now on.


Anyway, we had a blast on our trip. We went to The Chimneys, where you can climb all over a bunch of boulders in the middle of a river. Fun, huh? And thanks to the magic of the cortisone shot I got the day before we left, I was able to participate! We did have a bit of excitement at The Chimneys. Right when it started thundering, we headed toward the cars. It was then that Philip and I realized that we had both left our keys in the car. For the many of you who know my very careful and deliberate husband, this may come as a schock to you, as it did to me. Nevertheless, it happened. We found a park ranger, who radioed another park ranger. And then, Walker, Tennessee Ranger showed up. As the storm clouds continued rolling in, Ranger Walker worked tirelessly with his locksmith kit to get our car open. Apparently, my car is difficult to break into, because this took quite awhile. We were all soaked to the bone by the end of the episode, but Walker, Tennessee Ranger came through for us.


Also, we (of course) ate alot. The Pancake Pantry was absolutely wonderful (I highly recommend it if you've never been there before). Also, we made fried cookie dough eggrolls! Absolutley divine. I don't know why we've never thought of frying cookie dough before.

It was a great trip! It was fun to get to spend time with the three girls with whom I laughed, cried, gossiped, and rarely studied all through college. I am already looking forward to next year. Love ya, girls!
