Max and the Pyramid

Max actually stood still so I could get this picture of him as we were walking back to the car. I had picked him up at school and we went to play in the park.... The amphitheater behind his school is also behind him. They have his school programs there. It is so nice to be outside with the harbor in the background...


My Shannon, who I have known since she was sixteen. I have written about her before, but I recently snapped this pic of her and wanted to share it with my friends. This is my Max's Mom.

More Moments from Hummingbird Festival

These are Lily's photographs that she took at the Festival. She loves to take pictures of all the activities he do.... I guess with two grandmothers and Aunt Shannon taking pictures all the time, it is natural for her to want to do so too.
I think she has a nice creativity with her photos, and I am glad she enjoys it too....

The top picture is her self-portrait. Next picture is one she was very excited to take. Do you know what it is? It is the inside of a big turtle...she screamed upon looking inside and said "Look at his spine!" The bottom picture is pretty, but I do not know what it is, do you?

Hummingbird Festival

Lily and I went
to the Hummingbird Festival
outside Holly Springs, MS.
She got to hold one and
release it after it was banded.

His little heartbeat was
250 beats per minute.

We also saw bats and

It was at Strawberry Plains
Davis Plantation. We will show those
pictures later....

Our self-photography...the
last picture...

Grandparents Day at Campus

I love being a grandmother, and today I was an honored one. I got to school and signed in as all the teachers welcomed me and a host of other grandparents. I opened the door to Lily's classroom, looking for her. She was so eager for me to arrive and she motioned for me to come on in. She ran to me bringing a gift she had made for me....a poem about her small handprint along with her handprint....a family tree picture and a letter telling how we go to the Children's Museum, to Chickasaw Lake to climb the Magnolia trees, and go to Baskins Robins ice cream. We ate lunch together and went to recess. Those children had so much energy. Lily and her friends played Duck, Duck, Goose, climbed and drew chalk outlines of themselves. I think Mrs. A. is the best teacher, and Lily loves her...

My Birthday Photo

My daughter-in-law took this picture of Max, Lily and me on my birthday in Overton Park at the newly remodeled Levitt Shell.
Forrest had not made his appearance since he rode with dad. It was a beautiful evening and I loved being with my family.
Thanks again Shannon. I really love having my picture taken. :)
