So I totally dropped the ball on taking pics this past weekend, but thanks to Chris we have a few. I count it my own fault that there is only one extremely unflattering picture of me, below.
However, the lack of pictures does not reflect the lack of a good time. We had so much fun hanging out with Anna, Don, and the boys and checking out their new town. We got to take Emory with us, too, which I think the boys really enjoyed. As you can tell by the picture below, she has not mastered walking on a leash yet. If me and her are both attached to the leash and I am the one holding her, who is really in control?
Chris and I stayed in a bed and breakfast about 1/10th of a mile from Anna and Don's house. For any of you planning to go visit the Caulleys, the cost of "the homeplace" b and b is 50 dollars a night, and 52 if you want a queen bed instead of a double. So, as Chris would say, we splurged and got the queen. What the heck, you only live once, right?
Saturday morning, Carol fed us a delicious breakfast of french toast with berries, bacon, fruit, juice, and coffee, and we ate with Carol and her husband, Art. Following breakfast, they taught us some Jewish folk dances, and then we were ready for the day. We walked with Anna, Jon David, Luke, and Wendy (Don's mom) to go see campus. We met up with Don and ate at the one Mexican restaurant in town, which was surprisingly good and authentic tasting. I guess with a name like Jose you have to make good Mexican food. I would definitely recommnend it to anyone visiting Wilmore. There's also a really cool coffee shop (ahem... dad).
Mostly, it was just really nice to be with family and hang out. Anna and Don have some really cool neighbors, and I can already see God helping to build a network for them while they are there.
Overall, Chris and I thought that Wilmore was a really neet town. It's small, but the people there are not backwards, they are just simple. They live simply- which is surprisingly not easy to do, especially in Atlanta. The seminary in town gives the whole place a very Christian feel. It was a breath of fresh air.
