Sweet (Amy's) home Alabama

Returned Monday from a great trip to Alabama to meet barlow_girl's family. Feels like too much to even sum up, let alone detail, but I had a fantastic time. Amy's dad, mom (quiltlady), and brother (pigthatisbig) are so warm, hospitable, and fun—I felt at home right away. I think I may have met a good portion of the town during my stay, but there was also plenty of time spent just with the family. Some highlights:
  • Bringing coffee from Victrola and pizza from Northlake in hopes that a taste of Seattle will get them to come visit.
  • Good conversations, witty banter, fun entertainment (Brian Regan: I Walked on the Moon, Over the Hedge, Dirty Jobs, The Incredibles, etc.), and delicious food (smoked chicken, apple crisp, pecan pie, cheese biscuits, and so much more!) the entire visit.
  • Playing Cranium Turbo Edition with hilarious family friends.
  • Worshipping with One Accord Family Church on Sunday morning, with an old-fashioned potluck lunch afterward.
  • Sunday dinner with Amy's grandparents.
  • Swinging by Auburn on the way back to see Amy's alma mater (something I love to do as an old college geek).
  • Spending lots of time with Amy.
Yeah, that's not nearly enough to cover it, but I'll never get back to journalling otherwise.

I think you pretty much covered everything that has any description at all. Small-town hanging-around is pretty tough to fit into a bullet point. :o]

I had so much fun and I'm glad you did, too. :D
Sounds fun! Oh, and my brother-in-law LOVES Brian Regan. He has a lot of his stuff on CD and we listen to it sometimes. Pretty funny. :)
does he have that particular DVD ("I Walked On the Moon")? I'd recommend it for a gift for sure. I think I've seen it 4 or 5 times now and I cry laughing every time. :o]
He doesn't have the DVD but I will mention it to him. :)

We have a Kevin James DVD (the guy from King of Queens) that we've seen a million times and still find hilarious.
Oh man, I am just a grinning fool all through this post. I LOVE this. I'm glad it went well but of course it would have.


Whoo hoo!! Glad y'all had fun. :)
