While I was playing tennis, Will and Mac went to Darlington with a big crowd.  Ford was excited that his favorite drive, Matt Kenseth, won the race!

Tennis Member-Guest

Kim and I were partners again for Member -Guest last weekend.  All of the teams in our division were people we either have been on a team with in the past or are on our current team.  So, it was easy to have a good time.  The weather could not have been more perfect for tennis.  And....we won our division!!!

Friday...channeling our inner Housewives

Saturday...enjoying a beer after our win

Receiving our awards

Golf Member-Guest

Will played in the golf member-guest over the weekend at Forest Lake.  He and Tupp won their flight!  We met the guys at the club Friday night for the Terrace Party and then went to Rosso's for dinner with a big crowd.  Saturday night was the awards presentation in the ballroom.  Someone snapped this picture of Meg, Jenny and me.

Hunter Hayes/Carrie Underwood Concert

Olivia's friend Kit just celebrated her 11th birthday.  Part of her celebration included the Hunter Hayes/Carrie Underwood concert at Colonial Life Arena.  The girls have been looking forward to the concert since Christmas!

Sweet friends waiting to enter the arena.

We were lucky enough to have a box right near the stage.  After we got settled in the suite, the girls shopped for t-shirts and immediately put them on.  Once Hunter Hayes sang a few songs, he started thanking everyone for being there, etc.  Our girls shouted at the top of their lungs, "We love you, Hunter!"  And, he stopped mid-sentence and turned toward us and said, "I don't know who said that, but I love you, too!"  The girls went craaaaazy!

And, a shot of all the mamas.

Spring Break - Fort Frederica

I have been going to St. Simons for more years than I can count and don't think I've ever been to Fort Frederica.  So, Will, Pop, Mac and I left the girls at home with Nanoo and headed over there on Saturday afternoon.  

Our first stop was the Bloody Marsh where the British defeated the Spanish forces.  McIver thought the name of the marsh was pretty cool and was intrigued that the Spanish only reported losing eight soldiers.  Doesn't seem like that would cause enough blood for the name Bloody Marsh, but who are we to question history!?

Then, we headed over to the actual Fort which was a military outpost established to protect Georgia from the Spanish military in Florida.  It was a beautiful piece of land with many remnants left over from the fort.  Pop, Will and Mac posed for a picture in front of the spot where the doctor's house/office was located.

Spring Break in St. Simons

Rode bikes to the Village yesterday with Pop. After a quick (because that breeze was cooooold!) walk around the pier, we went to ZuZu's for ice cream, then did a little t-shirt shopping. Poor McIver has really outgrown his bike...he had to pedal about seven times more than the rest of us. But, we were just really glad to have another pretty day. It looks like tomorrow might be a washout.

Looking out toward Jekyll Island.

Grandparents' Day

GranGran was able to come up from the beach to spend last Friday at Grandparents' Day at school. The kids sang and showed her their classrooms. Olivia was even able to get GranGran together with a friend from college who now works in the Intermediate/Middle School office. I met the three of them or lunch at Fridays where we were able to get a quick picture before GranGran had to head back to the beach.

Duck Dynasty

We looooove Duck Dynasty! The countdown to the new season started about a month ago. I was so excited when I found this t-shirt for Will at Academy Sports. It was supposed to be his Valentines gift, but I totally forgot about it in our rush to get packed up for winter break in Bug Canoe. Anyway, McIver wax proud to show it off for premiere night!

Quick pic of my guy on the lift heading to our ski school.

Cacoo got her ski legs back pretty quickly thanks to two days of lessons.

Went to dinner at the Red Lion and almost had the place to ourselves.  McIver thought the mannequin's pose was pretty funny.

A 'selfie' with Dawn and Olivia

We love a pic with the mountain skier.

Vail - Mustache Day

We always have so much fun wearing our mustaches on the slopes.  People are hilarious asking why we wear them ... someone asked if we were doing a fund-raiser.  We told them we just don't take ourselves too seriously!

Hot chocolate break at Wildwood.
