Memorial Day Weekend

...at my family's condo at the Lake of the Ozarks! Spent the weekend swimming, boating, tubing, fishing, and riding the jet ski.

Just a little Midwest fun!

Location change!

WE MADE IT! Arrived in Louisville, Kentucky last Thursday morning...had a quick tour of the apartment, signed the papers, then unloaded the truck. Braden's parents, his brother Grant, my mom and brother Zach came with us from St. Louis to help us unload. Also, some friends that already live here in Louisville and attend Southern (the Feelers and Leonards) came over and helped us unload. With all the help it didn't take long to get everything into the apartment. Our new place is alot bigger and now we have a whole extra bedroom and bathroom...so any visitors are welcome! ; )
My car and the moving truck:Brother Zach and I:We're on the top:

Our new address: 848 River Dell Ct. Louisville, KY 40206:Since we moved here we've had to adjust to switching 3 time zones! So we've been sleeping in and slowly getting everything organized in our apartment.
Leah and Josh Feeler have been a big help to us since we arrived, Saturday Leah drove me all around showing me all the good places to shop...I have about 4 pages of notes! I was a little nervous before we moved here that there wouldn't be many choices for food and shopping, but after my tour of the area I know we'll be fine. Sunday morning the Feelers invited us to their church, Clifton Baptist. We both liked it and will probably visit again.
Well, that's all for now....we're sitting at the Panera using the free wireless and it's time to pack up.

Home Sweet Home

An update for all my faithful blog readers....I made it home to my parent's house safely, thanks to Frontier Airlines, on Monday afternoon. Braden is still driving as I write, he's almost to Springfield, MO...after that it's about 4 hours to here in St. Peters. A friend that already lives in Louisville checked out the apartment we have reserved at River Hill...he said it look fine and has brand new carpet, so that was good to hear. We'll move in tomorrow afternoon.

In the meantime, I've been having fun with family and have been visiting my old friends. Here are some pictures:

Empty Apartment

Braden's parents and brother Grant flew in last night and arrived safe and sound. The first thing we did was (of course) go to In-N-Out Burger! Yum!

Got Thomas checked out of his dorm at Master's and picked up the moving truck this morning....and after a few minor setbacks we made some mighty fine progress for the day.

After a hard days work we went to BJ's for the last time of our stay in California. Our friend Josh met us there to say goodbye. Here's a few pictures:

Santa Monica

Last night we hung out with Brennan again while he was here. Went to In-N-Out Burger another "California thing" to do and then drove down to my favorite, Santa Monica. We hit the beach and peir first:

Then did some shopping at Third Street/Promenade. As always, had a great time!

Only 11 days til the move. We're still deciding on an apartment, we haven't begun to pack, but both of us only have one more day at our jobs so we'll be able to get it done next week before we pick up the moving truck. Prayers would be much appreciated as we will be in need of extra energy and extra patience...this moving stuff can get a little hectic (especially when not all the details are finalized).

House of Blues

Our good friend Brennan Loveless is in town this week for a conference in Pasadena along with the associate pastor of his church. We took them to the House of Blues for dinner. It's becoming a ritual for us to take visitors to California there to eat! haha! Later we took them showed them around the Hollywood area and saw the Walk of Fame and Graumen's Chinese Theater where the famous star hand and footprints are. Fun night!
Brennan is engaged to one of my best friends, Natalie Doerr. Brennan and Nat were both in our wedding and now it's our turn to be in theirs on June 23rd. Weddings are always so much fun and we're really looking forward to this one! We're sooo excited for them.
