Weekend Recap!

 We had a pretty eventful weekend!  Friday & Saturday we were in Athens visiting our tax-man.  After a wonderful afternoon lunch & cocktails with Derek's parents, we decided to take the dogs out to enjoy the gorgeous weather.  We took about an hour walk through Derek's parents' property.  I know the dogs sure enjoyed it!

PS- All these photos are with my new iPhone...I'm pretty impressed with the camera quality.  Thanks everybody for all the tips and suggestions; I'm really love it!

Brutus leading the way...because he soooo knows the paths =)
 

Stopping and waiting on everybody because we are just so slow compared to him!

Derek and I in front of the tree where he proposed.  See the "D&K"?  He carved that into the tree right before he proposed.  Did I ever tell all of you that story?
 

 Brutus stopping for a drink in the pond.  Derek and I kept coaxing him to jump in.  Haha, it was probably only 50 degrees, so it was probably not a good idea.

Derek's parents' gorgeous pond!
 

Saturday evening, Derek and I met up with some friends and had a super fun adventure.  When we got in the cab to go to the bar and our cab driver asked where we were going.  We replied Hofbrauhaus. 

Our cab driver then said, "you're not going to Mardi Gras tonight?"  Of course we were a bit confused and had no idea what he was talking about, BUT told him to take us there.

We ended up at a Mardi Gras street party in Kentucky.  Besides the long lines, it was so much fun to go somewhere we have never been, at the spur of the moment.



 

Sunday- Derek and I had a long & fun shopping day!  Maybe I'll share some of my finds this week!
 
Hope you had a great weekend!
