Hanging out on the back deck.
Built a fire at night. The groom said at the rehearsal dinner that he thinks that all his friends should be friends just because and that became true - we hung out with everyone like we knew them. It was fun! We also experienced southern hospitality. There was a huge food basket in our cabin and they always made sure we had plenty to eat and were driving us all over the lake. The bride's family were incredible hosts! Dad was a groomsman and also in the saber guard. The bride is in the Army so it is half Army half Air Force. Small world story - one the of bride's sisters is married to a K-stater (who is in the Army) who graduated one year after mom. They knew a lot of mutual friends so it was fun to chat.
I guess when the groom's brother got married 5 years ago he did a number to the car (even took all tires off when they were on their honeymoon and hid them at different peoples houses). So to get even they did silly string, wrapped the car in saran wrap and the worst of it all put 148 live crickets in the car! The bride was a better sport than I would have been! Now they are off in Costa Rica! Thanks so much for thinking of others on your wedding weekend. They were the most selfless bride and groom!

Waiting at the first check point to switch off on the bike. We did the more "mountain biking" part of it but it wasn't too bad. There was one creek crossing where you had to get off your bike and walk through because it was too slippery.
The teams had to carry sandbags up and down the hill. Mom got lucky to only have to carry it downhill!
We finished (40th of out 60 teams but we still finished and had fun!)

Getting ready to head home!

During our bible study we studied Rahab and her testimony. We thought it would be neat to all share our testimonies so we did that on Friday night. It's amazing to see all the different backgrounds and how the Lord all brought us together!
Definitely enjoyed shopping - we don't get to do that much in a small border town!
