It's Gonna Be Smooth

Anyone who's been to our home at any point in the last decade (or more!) knows our driveway is ROUGH! A couple of years ago we decided we had to replace it (despite the sticker shock) but before we could, some pine trees (and their shallow roots) had to come down

I know the kids will be disappointed, but I, for one, am looking forward to a smooth driveway!

Two Brothers, Two Cousins, Two Fathers, Two Sons, AND Two Sets of Winners!

It was a great day for the Bowers men; both groups won their flights!

Tift Green and the Dawgs

Worth relaxing after his morning round with Georgie.
(love having my two babies together)

This is how Georgie relaxes. He can sleep like this
for hours with everyone else in the room
making all kinds of noise. 

This kid. That smile.

The old men get home and the four of them have a very serious debriefing.
Notice the father/son twin effect. Cute.

Loves dining al fresco. Well, except for the gnats. Ick.

Bonus! Joe, Cynthia, Scotty, and Maggie came!
The Red & Black game was on the agenda.

Sisters! 
Again, we pounced on our dinner of flank steak and chile rellenos with such fervor that there were no pictures!

2017 Tift Green - Pregame

Another year, another Tift Green. What a great weekend for our family. So glad the weather was perfect this year.

Bo, making custard for the ice cream.
At least we'd already had breakfast! Pancakes, of course.

We didn't get a picture of Grey in his bunny ears last
Sunday, so here's a belated shot. I think he likes them.

Meanwhile, this little fella just plain didn't feel good. 

George and Sue went to visit Sa and brought her back for lunch, the guys played a practice round, and I can't even tell you what we did for the rest of the afternoon. I'm sure it involved talking and chasing kids!

Late afternoon family fun!

Bo is obsessed with his 'Cousin Uncle George'

If you want ice cream, ya gotta take a turn at the churn.

Poor Banks was under the weather all weekend,
but that did not excuse him from his turn churning. 

Trying to get that fever down AND get that sticky boy clean!

We were too hungry to document our dinner: delicious fresh shrimp brought from the coast by George and Dena, paired with a salad and grilled corn. Yum.

The lure of the German hat finally captured E.W.
We stayed up way too late talking; spending time with family is our favorite.

The German Hat. Again.

This hat is the gift that keeps on giving. Grey was pretty excited to have discovered it for himself last weekend. 

What's this?

Do I remind you of, maybe, Frank Sinatra?

Love!

Easter Afternoon

Ready for the Easter egg hunt.

These two are such a mess! They're over there comparing strategies, I guess. 

eggs everywhere

Worth bombarding the kiddos.

I guess they're on the lookout?

Banks learned his technique from Worth. 

So glad I scrubbed all of the pollen out of the hammock!

I love this. Boys jockeying for position and girls posing.

Easter 2017

Such a struggle for us to get a family photo; we're either disheveled or the timing is off. Today we just took pictures when each group arrived and before anyone became too disheveled! These people are our everything.

Hand Dyeing

Last year the weather was rain and more rain, so we didn't even get around to dyeing eggs. Banks took to it like a professional, though, and was very serious about the entire process. 




He felt he could get a better result if he actually put his hands in the dye, as well.



Bo was happy to let Banks be in charge of the eggs as long as the sprinkler was on.






And Grey? Well, he was just being Grey. Smiling. 



Birds' Nests

 Every once in a while, an idea you see online turns out great!

Cousin Playdate

While the "gales" (as Mack calls his sisters) were in school, the daddies golfed with E.W, and the littles (Grey and Banks) napped, these two had some major cousin time. They're nine months apart in age and play together so well. We're not fancy. An old kiddie pool, a sprinkler, and some cups were all these two needed!





A little dry/quiet time in the hammock was the wrap-up.
