Georgia State Parks

Georgia has some of the most beautiful parks you could ever hope to find. We are so lucky to have Laurel Walker State park just a few miles outside of town. Recently John and I spent the afternoon out there reminiscing about early times spent skiing with our boys and playing with the grand kids there. We hope to visit many more Georgia State parks as we are out and about.

Last week was another busy week. We finally broke down and put a new roof on the house. No leaks but it had been over twenty five years since the last new roof was put on. Here is a big shout out to the boys at Lloyd's Roofing! They were great, had the whole job complete in three days! Great Job guys!

We completed a lot of our yard work. Got the azaleas all trimmed back, whew, glad that is over with! Also planted lots of new flowers and put out mulch. Oh I almost forgot we planted red raspberries! That should be a fun addition to the blueberries and strawberries we already have. Gotta go rest up now! LOL

Family. Who makes you the maddest, who do you love the most, who knows the best and worst about you? Chances are it is some body in your family. Being a scrapper, I am constantly reminded of the importance of family ties. Just want to tell you guys I love each and every one of you and can't wait to have you all home again.

Name Sake

Thought it would be good to do a page about the new baby's name sake. This is Patrick's paternal grandfather.

Happy Birthday Patrick!

Happy Birthday Patrick! Can't believe that, dare I say, thirty two years have gone by. Time really does fly when you are having a good time. Those were some good years and I look back on them with such fond memories. Today I watch you and your brother with your children and I can tell you the joy and love is multiplied 1000x.
Enjoy these days and know that it only gets better, we are a family with many blessings. Love you xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxooxoxoxooxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxooxoxoxoxox

Saturday Afternoons

The weather was great this weekend! We had a great time visiting the kids in Dallas, Georgia this weekend. We all went to this beautiful park. Baby Boyd seemed to love being outdoors. Any day at a park is a good day for Maggie Beth!

Baby Brag Book

Love the colors on this Baby book. It was purchased with these papers already on it but I can't remember the company that makes it, sorry. I added brads pictures and tags, ribbon, fibers and a couple of extra pages. Here is a few of the pages on the inside. The little book is for Cindy to carry in her purse for you know, on the spot bragging! LOL

April Showers

April showers are here! They started last night with thunderstorms. I must admit I have Spring fever but, I will gladly endure a few days in the house for the rains to come so our flowers and trees will continue to be beautiful.I just love Spring. It is my favorite season. The weather in the south is great except for a few showers, everything is waking up green and the flowers are beautiful. What is your favorite season?
