Tyner's First Trip to Vaught-Hemmingway Stadium

It was worth every minute taking Tyner to the first Ole Miss game of the season. He had so much fun but of course was totally worn out! We sat in front of a man from Pontitoc that had been a highschool football coach. Tyner became his new best friend! By the end of the night he was sitting in "Doc's" lap!

Meet the Rebels

We went to Oxford on Saturday for Meet the Rebels. Hunter started telling Tyner about it earlier in the week. He told him about the "big" football players we would see and get to meet. He got really fired up about it. So, when he got there on Saturday he was so ready to see these "big boys!" And so was Daddy!! Hunter couldn't wait to get him a jersey, football, and all other kind of "Rebel Gear." We had such a good time. It was so worth it just seeing Tyner and Hunter so excited about Ole Miss football!

My Sweet Husband!

Well, Friday was just a long day for us! I was a little weary and worn out from taking care of a 3 year old and a 1 year old. We left Friday afternoon to go to the park for a little while. When we returned 2 dozen yellow roses with red tips were on my breakfast room table! He said he just thought I needed something to brighten up my day! These roses are also very special to me because they are the kind of roses Hunter had all over his apartment and hanging from the ceiling when he proposed almost five years ago! He certainly hasn't lost his touch! He is the most incredible husband and father!

Opryland Hotel

Well, since it is 100 degrees here we are trying to find lots of indoor activities to do. Some days it is even too hot for the swimming pool. Well, today was one of those days. We don't live very far from the Opryland Hotel. So, I decided we would take a trip there and ride the boat and walk around this unbelievable hotel. Tyner loved it!! We stopped at Hagan Daaz and got ice cream after our boat ride. And you can certainly tell from the picture how much he loves ice cream. The picture of the waterfall is one of the 2 or 3 (I can't remember) that are in this hotel. It was a fun afternoon!

Verse of the Week

Our verse this week is Luke 2:9-11. "An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. Today in the town of David a SAvior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.
