Summer Vacation

We went to Georgia for Independence Day week, including the weekends before and after. This is an annual event for us, which we look forward to greatly. John grew up spending parts of every summer in Georgia with his Papa and Nanny. So now he can continue that practice and share it with me and our sons.

Our "Granny", John's mom, also joined us from Louisiana.

Tuesday was one of our trip highlights. We took a day trip to Savannah and Tybee Island beach, along with Granny and John's cousin Jordan and his wife Tiffany. We all had a wonderful time, as you can see in the following slideshow (click on it to view). In case it doesn't work through dial-up, here is a link to the picasa site:

On a sad note, John's great-uncle Elmer went to be with the Lord. John served as a pall bearer at the funeral on Saturday. We are glad Elmer no longer has to battle Parkinson's disease. His new body won't lose its movement! Praise the Lord.

Look at all your updates! I swear I checked your blog a few days ago and nothing - and now 3 updates in a row! The planting project is cool - I should do that sort of thing. My poor poor children saddled with a lazy mother! ha! Love the picture of you and Alisa Russell - so neat!

Thanks for inviting me to catch up with your world. I've read through a few of the blogs... I hate it that I don't keep in touch better! I'd love to have you all back here sometime!
