St. Jude Classic

It's been a busy weekend! We had Meme's birthday party Friday night, then headed to Memphis early Saturday morning for the St. Jude Classic. Mom works for FedEx and got us few tickets to the executive cabana which was pretty neat! There was all you can eat food all day and unlimited air conditioning! A pregnant woman's dream!

The whole fam. Adam played in a golf tourny with his boss at the last minute and couldn't come with us.   We missed him but were excited that he WON the golf tournament they played in. He had a great time and I hope we can all go to The St. Jude Classic together next year... I bet I know a good babysitter!
 I wouldn't say I'm an avid golf fan by any means but I do watch a lot with husband (err nap while he watches)  Rory McIlroy is one of his favs right now and it was neat to see him in such close proximity.
While I had parked my pregnant self on a bench waiting for the shuttle to take us back to the hotel, out walks Rory! Right in front of me! I was the first one to see him walk out of a back door in the club house and ran right up to him to snap a pic and get an autograph. I was a little starstruck! He probably didn't appreciate it much since he had been leading all weekend only to lose the lead on the last few holes. But then again, he IS the number 2 golfer in the world and better get used to crazy ladies stopping him for a photo op.
My souvenir for husband.

Happy 80th Birthday Meme!

My sweet grandmother turned 80 on June 7th. For her birthday, my aunt Lisa took her to New York City! They were there over her birthday and the Friday after we had a surprise birthday party for her with her closest friends and family.

The adorable cake! My cousin knows a couple that makes/decorates cakes as their ministry. The most you ever pay is $30 and they accept donations on top of that. So neat! We of course had a NYC themed bday party!

Meme being surprised!

I hope I am as beautiful as my Meme one day. She is one of my favorite people. She is also the only living grandparent I have- she is one of my treasures!

Several people from our "old" church at Mablevale came to party. We set up a photo booth and everyone had a pretty good time dressing up and being silly.

Especially these two. Mr. Bob and Mr. Bill. Two of the funniest guys you'll ever meet. I've known them since I can remember.

Meme with all of her grandchildren and great grands. (sadly Adam couldn't make it.) This time next year she will have another great grand to add to this picture!

I hope you had a great birthday, Meme! We enjoyed celebrating with you and look forward to many more birthdays!
