At the BMX Track

Friday night we finally got back to the track to watch Charlie & Adam race – and alas, it was rained out.  We did get to see each one of them run one moto – here is Charlie, who, I think, came in second that time. We were so excited when we got there to […]

Fourth of July

We celebrated Independence Day with Addie, Lee, and kids, and some of their friends.  Fireworks were a huge hit, of course.  They kids laid (and jumped) on the trampoline for part of the show.  Here is June helping Becky Ann’s daughter McKenna out. Beautiful way to end the evening.

Fourth of July – Daytime Pix

We celebrated Independence Day with Addie and Lee and the kids that evening.  During the day, though, Jeff got outside and took some pictures of how pretty he has our yard looking. When we got to Addie & Lee’s, we were so excited to find out Stephanie and Becky & all their families were there.  […]

Ebenezer Park

June, Mason, & I didn’t get to go on our Summer Kick Off Adventure until this week.  Between June’s involvement in STArts, and our vacation, this is all we could do.  Wednesday, though, we took a picnic and headed to Ebenezer Park in Rock Hill.  They stayed in the water the entire day except when […]


Tuesday evening we went with the church kids to play goofy golf in Gastonia.  It was a small group – it’s 4th of July week, plus hot as blazes outside – but those of us who went had a good time.

Back on the golf course

This week we were back out watching Mallory do what she loves best. She plays junior golf in the summer with several girls from maybe a four county area – girls that she will play with or against once the school season rolls around in the fall. We hadn’t seen her play in eight or […]

On the Way Home from Indiana

We left French Lick at 6 AM Saturday morning, to head to Goodfellas in Henryville to meet Mark, Susan, Bobby, David, and Marcelene for breakfast.  Charlie and Adam had seen the road signs for Amish buggies when they were there, and asked if there really were any around.  And that morning we saw two on […]

Lunch at Hagans

Friday when we were in French Lick, Jeff’s niece Leigh came over to visit us at the condo, along with her husband Stephen & her precious boys David and Will.  Stephen is a preacher, and got a call while he was there that a plumber was heading to the church, so he left, but Jeff […]

More from the Zoo

I got this group picture before Arielle & family had to leave the zoo to get home for Bella’s softball practice.  It was in the Amazonia building, right in front of the tarantulas and hissing cockroaches 🙂 We finished up our visit feeding the giraffes.
