Just before 6:00 on her parents' fourth wedding anniversary, Ava Collins Wallace made her way into this world. She was surrounded by so many grands, great grands, aunts and uncles, I could not get close. Weighing in at 6lb. 15 oz. at 21 inches long, she is loved.
Cullen is leaving the University after the better part of a decade and his office gave him a send off his last official day of work. He has been through about three different administrations while in his position and has seen countless coworkers come and go, but he and Corese have stayed together through it all.
Jett Boy can now say he has been to Chuckee Cheese. As far as I'm concerned it can be his last. It was past his nap time and he was less than happy. He loved playing with MK but was kinda over all the lights the sounds and the bigger kids.
We love Jett loves Mary Kiley and he enjoyed getting to run around after her. She is a pro at Chuckee Cheese, so he was happy to just follow her to see what she wanted to do next. Both kids loved the Ski Ball machine best and to be honest so did their mamas.
This sweet friend and I have been through a lot over the years. Thinking back to eighth grade, she was the very first friend I remember telling my parents were getting divorced. We sat side by side in Gertrude Kemp's World History class and studied for finals we were exempt from just to get a better grade. She is the most honest human I've ever met, she will never sugar coat to make you feel better, she has listening ear for that, and then her truthful tongue will get you right back on track. We had a rare moment without children the other night and just enjoyed catching up. The older I get the more I appreciate a good time with good friends.
This year I was a little less reluctant for our Firecracker Brunch. The weather was questionable all week, and it was awful this morning, so we partied inside. On the bright side it was not as hot as it has been in the past.
This year the new dish was red, white, and blue waffles.
The parade was rained out for the city, but we paraded between small showers ourselves. What's a parade really? Jett was to follow the golf cart, but of course he wanted to lead the way.
