Ok, I've sort of let my blog go. I haven't felt like our lives have been exciting enough to post, but I've been encouraged to update so here is an exciting trip we went on... almost 3 months ago:

Wes had an afternoon off so we drove down to Georgia and visited our good friends Chelsea and Doyle Johnson.

They showed us around Atlanta and Athens,
took us to some good, Southern BBQ (that Wes said was the best BBQ he had ever had),
introduced us to BOILED PEANUTS (which are better than they sound! We quite enjoyed them!),
and toured the Coca-Cola Factory with us!

The couch was from American Idol. Carrie Underwood sat on it!
There were so may original Coca-Cola merchandise there, including antique vending machines.
And it's crazy how much people seem to love coke!

The best part of the tour was the end when we got to try all the different coke products from all around the world. Our favorites were from China. They weren't as carbonated and were sweeter.
***TIP: if you ever go to Italy, DO NOT drink a beverage called Beverly!***

On the way home, we stopped at Tallulah Gorge to break up the drive and hike around "the largest canyon east of the Grand Canyon."
