~Class Reunion and Father's Day Weekend~

We had a great weekend -- my 10-year class reunion and Father's Day!

My class reunion was so, so, so, so fun!!!  We had a meet-and-greet (and karaoke - ha!) Friday night at Matehuala Mexican restaurant in Talladega and a social Saturday night (with good food, drinks, and music) at Alpine Bay.  It was hilarious catching up and reminiscing with high school friends! While we all now have jobs and responsibilities and kids and families and all that grown up stuff, it felt like high school Friday and Saturday night. I tried to take as many pictures as possible. I won't post any embarrasing ones -- I'll save those for the reunion pictures CD everyone's getting. Ha!

I was one of the people who planned the reunion, and not very many people initially seemed as excited as a few of us.  So of course I feared it wouldn't be a great turnout or that people wouldn't have fun. It turned out to be the exact opposite. Now I'm already looking forward to planning the next one -- we're thinking a cruise!  Which will be so fun because our senior trip was a cruise to the Bahamas.  Crazy to think that we'll be going on another one together, 20 years later. I'm excited already!

Here are some pics. I took a ton of them and thought most of them were worth putting on the blog (aka - my family scrapbook), but there were waaaay too many to post individually. So I did the collage thing (if you want to see the pics in a bigger version, you'll have to click them).















Besides some different hair and a few pounds gained (or lost, for some) here and there, none of us have really changed in these 10 years.  It was so great seeing everyone (outside of Facebook)!

My mom kept Morgan this weekend and of course they had fun together.  When I wasn't at a reunion event, we tried to see some family.  We planned to attend a softball game at my grandmother's church, but it rained out. But we still were able to see her as well as my aunt and two of my younger cousins.

Messing with Granna's magnets, as usual.


Playing with Suga.

Trying to get MeMaw to let her play on the porch stairs!


Acting silly with Granna.

"Pleeeeease, Suga, let me play on the stairs!"

I blinked my eyes and now my little cousin Xavolon is a young man!

I remember loving all over him when he was a baby - now he's holding my baby.
He'll be 16 next week.  TIME FLIES!

Last but not least, Father's Day.  After a busy weekend, we had a very low-key Father's Day.  DK and I were EXHAUSTED.  Morgan, on the other hand, went to Gadsden with her Auntie Ashleigh to Danny's Granny to spend time with the Kimbles.  I know Morgan enjoyed that! 

DK spent the day chillin' on the couch watching baseball, soccer, and golf while I did some things around the house.  I'm sure he wouldn't have wanted it any other way.

Danny, I know you don't read the blog that much (though I'll ask you to check it out so you can see this), but you are an amazing father to our little girl.  She loves you so, so much, and I love to watch you guys together.  I love the way you protect her, discipline her, love her, play with her -- just everything.  One of my greatest pleasures in life is to watch the two of you.  Thank you for being who you are.  You mean the world to us.












DK and I both are blessed with fathers who are alive and well and love us so much.  We literally wouldn't be here without them :) and thank God for them! 

I hope everyone has a great week!
