We had hoped to go to both Kentucky and Georgia for Christmas, but we decided it would be a bit too much at this time. We spent Christmas in Kentucky with Gabe's family this year.
Gabe and I decided we wanted to get in one more poker trip before having the baby, so we decided to go to Atlantic City for the weekend. Due to the flight itineraries and prices and the hotel prices, we decided to leave on Saturday morning and return Sunday night. We invited others in the poker group to join us, and Brad decided to join us from the Raleigh area. Clint met us in Atlantic City since he lives in New Jersey now.

Lexington, KY and Cincinnati, OH
Gabe received his birthday present a bit early this year. For various reasons, I didn't want to put together the plans for this trip by myself. Since it was almost a month before Gabe's birthday, I had to come up with a good way to tell him what I wanted to give him for his birthday. During the first half of the Bengals season opener, I created a treasure hunt with clues leading to different places around the house. Each clue had a hint about his birthday present until the hints were obvious enough for him to figure out his present. He searched for the clues during halftime. I had already talked to Gabe's mom about the idea, and the three of us are going to the game on Sunday, October 21st at Paul Brown Stadium. Gabe and his mom are both very excited!

Seattle and Alaska
Gabe and I both wanted to try cruising and to go to Alaska. The trip was awesome!
Gabe and I drove down to Athens, Georgia to visit with relatives. Since I was sick right before Christmas, Gabe had missed out on meeting most of the Kraul side of the family. We had been planning to find a good time to visit the Kozlosky's since then.
We decided a few days beforehand to take a short trip down to Atlanta to visit my family. We drove to Davidson on Friday night and arrived in time for a late dinner and some competitive Scrabble matches. We completed the drive to Atlanta on Saturday morning and drove back to Raleigh on Sunday night. We had a nice time visiting with my grandparents.
Our friends Donovan and Cynthia were married this weekend at The 1927 Lake Lure Inn and Spa. Gabe and I drove to Lake Lure on Saturday to attend their wedding and reception.
We planned this trip in December, and we had no idea that we would be closing on our new house just a few short days before the trip! It was nice to get away for a few days from all the stress with moving and settling into the new place! We met up with my parents and Gabe's Mom. We spent some time with family, played some poker, and saw The Beatles Cirque du Soleil show, Love.
Gabe likes to go to the races at least once a year, so we planned once again to visit his family during opening weekend at Keeneland.
