What's new?

I know, once again I've let my updating slip. So, I won't make any promises that it will get better. What's new? My mama and gramma just left after spending 4 days with me. We had an excellent time and visited the Botanical Gardens and Graceland. The King had an amazing home and it was more fun then I had anticipated. However, their departure has made me quite homesick. Since the last post I made a trip to Baltimore. It was simply amazing. Beautiful sky line, amazing strolls along the harbor. My hotel was on the waterfront and I just can't explain how sweet it was. I had the most amazing shepherd's pie at an Irish pub in Fell's Point, listened to dueling piano's at Howl at the Moon, and sampled crab cakes at Phillip's. For now, I'm gonna get on the bike and explore the Tennessee country side.

Hang ten...or something like that.

No, I didn't go surfing. The Atlantic is too cold for that right now. I did just get back from North Carolina though. We went down to Kitty Hawk for some hang gliding. It was a blast! We were gliding in the very same dunes that the Wright bro's were perfecting their flying skills. I guess I should explain that I've been in VA Beach since Thursday if you were wondering why the heck I was in NC. I also got to try some actual seafood. Not in Kansas, or even Tennessee for that matter, but fresh out the water. Still not impressed, but now I can say I've tried it. Give me a pulled pork sammy any day. Well, I'll be getting up at 4:30 in the am to catch my flight tomorrow, so I'm gonna get some shut eye. 

We have lift off!
Stuck the landing like a pro.
Calling it a day. Well, they just wouldn't let me go anymore.
