Lee are a Super Star!

This was taken at Chucky Cheese the other night for Garrett's birthday. He had a blast....said this was his best birthday ever!!

This post is for Lee Laurie.......she is a wonderful mother, caring and loving friend, thoughtful....I can't describe in words just how wonderful she is......

She received a big atta girl the other day at work. She exceeded her goal on pre-sales....she reached 240% of her goal. So on top of being a mom, a grandmother, a loving best friend, a person that would go above and beyond to help you, even if it meant putting things she needed or wanted to do second....she excels at work....she has a huge customer base and she is the only one they want to wait on them.

To me....she is a "SUPER STAR!"

I love you, Lee.

Hailey and Garrett at the park....

These are some older pictures of the kids. Lee Laurie and I had taken them to Hattiesburg to have some fun. This is a little park just off of Hardy St in Hattiesburg. There is a zoo next to it. We didn't make it to the zoo, however, we are planning another trip with them.

We had stopped by a produce stand and had bought some stuff....boiled peanuts and some fruit. Since it was windy and chilly that day, we sat in the truck and ate boiled peanuts while the two little ones played.

Of course, the cool weather didn't bother them at all. They are two clowns. If you look close, you will see that they have their fingers stuck in the dinosaurs nose.....yuck!! You can tell by the smile on their faces it didn't bother them at all...ha.

They get along so good together. After letting them play for awhile and burning off some that childhood energy, we decided to let them drive the Volkswagen......

and what a fine job they did....well, not really, this is at a store in downtown Hattiesburg and they use this ole Beetle Bug to draw attention. It is really a cool way to tell someone which store is know the one with the white VW Beetle that ran half way into the building....yep...well that is my store. Also, downtown just a few blocks away is the Historic District and they have several old beautiful houses. We have taken several pictures of them. Lee has posted a few of our pictures on her site,
Afterwards, we took them to Chucky Cheese where they played even harder. They had a blast!!
We must make time to spend with our children.....they are not little for long....they grow up and start wanting to find out who they are, where they want to live, what they want to do.....they need reminding that we are and will always be here for them. After several years, I know I am where I of the many songs that Lee Laurie and I like is by Rascal Flats....God Blessed the broken road. It has a special meaning to us. Hope you enjoy!
