1st Annual Westwood Camping Trip (Boys only)

Brent, Ben, Ryan, Chad, Conner, Brian and Peter.

I think this picture is hysterical....It rained on the boys the whole time!  They came home 24 hours early.  I still think they had fun based on the few, vague details I was privileged of getting!!

Pep talk for today (I'm tired)!

Free Water!

I'm nervous our water bill (with all the sprinkling we've been having to do) is going to be astronomical this month!

check out....

The Masters

 Brent was invited by Dr. Kim to go to the Master's practice round.  He came back with over 900 pictures.  I got tickled with him...because if you clicked through the pictures really fast it was like watching a movie!!  Honestly, you would have thought Brent had died and went to heaven...that's how cool it was!  Here is just a glimpse (through randomly selected pictures by yours truly)...

and a congrats to Phil for the win!!

Spring cleaning cont.

I'm sitting here at the laundry mat...watching, waiting... While our down comforter gets its' first washing in two years. Is anybody jealous?!? I'm jealous of these humongo, frontloader washers and dryers! They are definitely on my wishlist (maybe in green or blue) to go in our next home (the after-residency house) you know the one with granite counter tops, separate tub and shower, over 2500 sq feet, huge fenced in back yard, mother in law suite, and the list goes on and on!! Hey, there's nothing wrong with dreaming is there?!

Well, there's only 5 minutes left of the wash cycle so I better go prepare the dryer. I intend to run a few errands while our "so fresh and so clean clean" comforter drys ( I have my tennis ball and everything).

Oh yeah, anybody else loving this weather? Happy hump day!

We drove to Hattiesburg for Easter.  

We stopped in Birmingham Thursday night---and made it to Meridian early FRIDAY for lunch (thanks dad) and some QT with the Rush side of the family!  Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures to show for this.

We got to Hattiesburg around two for some shopping and
then were treated to a fabulous steak dinner by my grandparents that night, thanks Tricia and Pappy!

After dinner we went to Mom's and sat around in a circle, like this.....
Believe me when I say, There is nothing better!!

These are just some interesting facts I learned from the night worth documenting...

*My Mom went into labor with me at the restuarant we ate at this night....(Conastoga)
*You know those colored chicks you can buy around Easter...Well, if you find them dead and they are all stretched out---it was a heart attack.  If they are all curled up--they died of hypothermia!
*Tricia and Pappy once owned their own steak house with the Stamps...The Stampeed (a piece of pie was 15 cents).
*"Four Queens is a pretty good poker hand" was the quote from Pappy when the doctor predicted their fourth child was also going to be girl (based on the heart rate)....The fourth queen ended up being my Uncle Charlie!!

Hope everyone had a GOOD FRIDAY and a Happy Easter!
