Gordon Roadtrip

Mark and I hit the road to Gordon this weekend for two home lacrosse games and a women's alumni BBQ. We had a blast visiting old friends and continuing to make new ones through the lacrosse program. We had quite the turnout from the '05 and '06 classes, but unfortunately pending rain and the men's game ruled out an alumni match. This was probably for the better as we all were able to return home without bruises. After the guys game, we went to the Mastersons' house for BBQ round two! Here are some pictures from the girls BBQ (coming soon!)

It was wonderful to be able to stay with the Collins family, visiting with Matt, Honey, Hull, Nora and Muddy. We were fortunate to catch up with Kyle, Courtney, Elisha, and Lydia (three different times!) Ryan Smith and John Willis recently moved into a new apartment and hosted a party with perfect timing - it was great to see everyone all in once place. On Sunday morning after church at First Congo, we were able to spend a good amount of time with John, Stacey, and Gus Gus (the dog) on Sunday. Visiting with them is always great and we were very reluctant to leave their house to begin our return trip.

All in all, it was an excellent weekend. However, there were two random events: 1. On Saturday night, we hit a deer (the deer got a haircut from our front hood, but in the end both the car and the deer were okay) 2. A Sunday lunch stop at Chebacco Market led us to find a pickle in a bag (and of course, Mark got one to go with his hoagie - he split it with John Backiel).
