It rained off and on here Thursday as the storms passed through so my Redneck husband decided to utilize the water and wash his boat and truck. The sad thing is that they look so much better now even though it poured down rain on them after the fact. Oh well, I got a kick out of it and for the record I love that my husband gets things done regardless of the weather or anything else for that matter. He also washed his grill. My sister and brother-in-law came in late Thursday night and we got up early Friday morning and loaded up our boat and headed down to the Okefenokee Swamp in Folkston, Georgia. Okefenokee means "Land of the Trembling Earth" and is a 438,000 acre National Wildlife Refuge. We are literally obsessed with the show Swamp People, and we felt like one of them out in the Okefenokee. We have been wanting to make this trip together for a while now and I am so thankful we finally got to do it! We had a blast! The water level was really low since we are in a drought down here in South Georgia, but other than that we didn't have any issues. We saw at least 150-200 alligators. The weather was perfect-not a cloud in the sky and not too hot. It was so nice to be able to just spend the day on the boat looking at all the beauty of God's creation and being able to just visit. I love my sister and BIL so much and I wish we were close enough to each other that we could do these kinds of things more often. We traveled about 6 miles upstream to Coffee Bluff shelter where we got out and had a picnic for lunch. My sister will always be my best friend no matter the distance. I love her dearly.I love how you can see both of the guys and the hissing alligator in this picture!After we left the swamp we went back into Folkston and were treated to a good supper at the local Okefenokee Restaurant. It is a seafood buffet where all the locals go on Friday and Saturday nights. Then we hung out in the parking lot and talked a while before we had to go our separate ways. Tiffany and Brad were heading on down to Florida for a dive trip they had planned for the weekend. I'm pretty jealous ;) Either way we loved the Okefenokee and can't wait to go back again!On our way home we got through Jesup, Georgia, where the have an awesome drive-in movie theater and since Madea was playing we decided to stop in and watch it. It was so much fun and I would much rather go to a drive-in than a new theater. There is something so nostalgic about the experience. The best part is you get a double feature! The movie was funny but I'm glad we didn't pay more than $5 each to see it, though. I love that we have so many inexpensive things to do around here. It makes life exciting!
