of weekends, castles, french fries and such

so this was our weeekend. it started out with the lasiest saturday in the history of 2011. i know, right! seriously lazy people around this joint! ANYway. . . saturday consisted of doing a little bit of cleaning in the vehicles, riding some bike (20 miles of bike) and then doing laundry and getting supper ready for when dennis and shelle got here. the laundry looked so happy in the spring breeze that i took a picture of it. that's the toppest picture if you haven't figured it out. then our scrumptious dinner of fish sticks and french fries. reminded me of the days when we only got to have four and dad and dennis got five because we could only afford one box of fish sticks. good times!! and don't even bring up peeling the breading off the fish and playing with our food. we were good kids people we did not mess around at the dinner table!!!
then sunday we left church after sunday school and headed up to seneca to see nate's. first we had to make a few stops though. one of which was a house that dad is gonna drywall this week. it's huge and comes complete with massive stone archways and a spiral staircase from the second floor to the basement. which means if you didn't understand me there that it's three stories tall. i wouldn't mind that now that i think about it. :) then we headed to what everbody in oconee county refers to as "the castle". it's a house that someone had a major vision for but lost the money to finish it halfway through. the homeowner had tore the main house down to the studs and was adding on to it, majorly. the roof was "shingled" with rubber from tires, it has an antique wine cellar, all of the exterior doors are four or so inch thick mahoghany, the outside has terraced courtyards, and the list could go on. it's absolutely insane! so i got the rest of these pictures there. not all of them are of the house but we did have alot of fun there to say the least.
one of the many run down areas that just makes me so sad for the poor man who lost it all. he had a vision.

the family crest

the antique spiral staircase that went up to a viewing deck out over the lake.
after all of this we went to nate's and did absolutely nothing. and when your with real friends and doing nothing sometimes can feel alot like everything. :) it was so good to just BE with them again.
so until the next time i blog i hope ya'll have a wonderful wonderful life.
