School's OUT for the summer....
Here I come...SECOND GRADE!!
And so Summer begins in Atlanta
by celebrating Memorial Day weekend
boating on Lake Lanier!

Best dressed homes have 
We find ourselves at the start of
Summer 2016!
I'll meet ya' poolside!

Now aren't these the cutest little floatie drink holders
you ever did see?

Ole' BoBo is the first one in......

There is no separating a dog and his ball!

Look who's home from Austin for a few days!!

Fire up that grill boys!

There is nothing that makes the tummy growl more
than smoking a rack of ribs and a brisket!

How about trying a new summer cocktail Jenn?

"Cake by the Ocean!"

Now all we need is the ocean......


We had a very fine Memorial Day in spite of
some very hot and humid weather!
The boys made it safely back to Austin and
we are always so thankful for their safe travels!

After all that cooking...
we decided to treat ourselves to date night!

Greg selected a new place to dine .......
Kona Grill!

It was a dark and stormy night
here in the great state of Texas....
time to rest the weary!!!
