Kirk's Run

April 29, 2013

Today we went downtown to watch Max's best friend Kirland run.  She has been participating in a kid's running club at school this spring.  They have been logging their miles in cooperation with ING Kid's Rock Marathon program.  The goal was to complete an entire marathon over the weeks of running at school.  The day after the Country Music Marathon the kids all came downtown to run their last mile.  They got to cross the big finish line and mark their 26.2 miles with their team.  Kirland did a fantastic job.  We were proud to be their to cheer her on to the finish.  Kirk a dirk is one special little lady!!

Mary Kate got to spend the day with Sawyer for her birthday last week.  She turned the big THREE!  Amanda took them out for an all day girls' day complete with tutus.  The started to morning with Minnie Mouse Waffles at Waffle House.  Next they headed to a local jump place to play on the slides.  After hours of play they headed to Chick Fil A for lunch and then back home for more play time.  Mary Kate had a blast and talked about it for days.  Thanks Amanda for taking time to create such special memories for our girls!  Love them to pieces!

Yay!!  Our fabulous neighbor,  the #1 kindergarten teacher, and one of our best friends celebrated her big birthday this weekend.  Michael got everyone together for a cookout on the real day to sing and enjoy cake.  Then a few weeks later he surprised her with the Party Bus.  We all had a wonderful time and are so thankful to have Shannon in our lives.  Happy Birthday Mrs. Miller!!

Horseback Riding

April 13, 2013

We made a weekend getaway this year for Tristan and Kayla's birthdays.  We, along with Chris and Dianne,  met Shannon and Ty and the kids in Gatlinburg for a weekend of fun.  Kayla has been wanting to horseback ride for a long time.  She decided this fall that she wanted that to be her birthday party this year.  Ty set it all up in Pigeon Forge and we had a great time.  Mary Kate even got to ride with Pawpaw.  She told her horse to "getty up, getty up, horsey"  the entire ride.
