Weekend Fun

We had a great weekend! We started off Friday morning picking blueberries at Tommy and Sue's house. It was very hot. We called Trey early in the day to get over there to help us. Julia ate more than she put in the buckets and Jack was a great supervisor telling us when we missed a berry. Once we were back home and clean we took a trip to Tuscumbia to Spring Park. It ended really quickly because it was pouring rain. The kids got to ride the train twice but nothing else. So we ended up taking the kids to Chucky Cheese to play. After playing at Chucky Cheese we had dinner at Japanese. Our kids love sushi and of course fried rice.

Saturday Trey played golf ALL DAY and Jack worked with Pop in his yard. We ended the day with a cookout at Greg and Julie Chaffin's house. The kids all swam and we had a great time with lots of adult conversation. I was kinda worried for Savannah because she is the only older girl but she managed to play well with the group of boys and the group of younger girls. It was a great time. I cannot wait to do it again.
Sunday we went to church and ate lunch at Mom and Dad's. The kids spent the afternoon swimming and Trey and I watched the World Cup Championship game with Mom, Dad and Mama Tommie. We had a great weekend and ended tonight with a great phone call from one of Savannah's best friends telling us she was saved today and is getting baptized next Sunday. What a joy to hear of a new sister in Christ! God is still working!

4th of July Weekend

Friday we enjoyed going to the drive in with the drive in gang. We have been meeting a group of friends who have kids close to the ages of our kids. It is great. Some times we are a little loud not watching the movie, but it's the drive in. The drive in gang always includes us, the Stovalls and the Chaffins. The Newmans have been with us once.
Saturday we went over to Jackson, MS to spend time with Becky's side of the family. Matthew, Kelly and Addison were home for the holiday so we got to spend time with the new baby. The kids had a great time playing in the sprinkler. We got back in Winfield in time for a wonderful meal and then enjoyed the fireworks in Guin.

Sunday we spent the day with my family. Brian and Erin were home this weekend so we were so excited to spend time with them. The kids had a great time playing in the pool, eating homemade icecream and shooting fireworks.
