Weekend of Fun

The crew minus John and Brad. John had not made it down yet and Brad was taking the picture.

John Luke liked the rolls at O'Charley's as much as his Aunt Kimberly!

This weekend we all went to the "fish house" in Foley. We call it the "fish house" because it is on Fish River. Our sweet cousins in Atlanta hardly ever make it down there so they are always happy for us to use it. Anyway, usually when we go the guys go fishing and the girls ride around looking at houses and/or shopping. There are the most beautiful homes in Foley and all around that area. I think partly what makes them so pretty are the enormous live oaks and pecan trees. Then we either all go eat somewhere good or we decide what we want to cook at home. The picture of the yellow building is one of the places we went to eat. I had to show a picture of it because daddy had decided that day he wanted BBQ for supper so we drove around 1 1/2 hours looking for this particular place. He knew he had seen it somewhere and was determined to find it. When we FINALLY got there it was a yellow storage building. I must say it was good. I thought it would fit in perfectly with the storage building and the tin shed back at the trailer home!
We also played Catch Phrase one night. That was fun but I didn't make it too long because they waited until about 10:00 to start playing and that is WAY past my bedtime! And it was definitely too late for John. He had been snoring for at least an hour at that point.
The girls went to meet Stacey, Kady, Aunt Vickie, and Ashlie in Mobile for lunch at O'Charley's on Saturday. Kady is still beautiful and TINY. She is like a little baby doll. I couldn't believe how small she still is. She has the prettiest black hair and dark skin.
It is nice to just be able to get away and enjoy the family for a few days. We always have a good time!

Thanks Beth! I thing green is my favorite color. I'm on a waiting list for a professional blog designer to do a make-over of my page, but the one I have for now I made in the Paint program in accessories. It's not that hard. Just create a design, save it, and browse for it when uploading a new header. I hope ya'll had a great St. Patty's Day!
