March Inn

Why"March Inn?" March Inn was the name of that magic place where I spent my summers growing up. I have alluded to this place before, and I probably will again. March Inn is no longer standing. The waters of Katrina rendered it unlivable so my children will never know that "March Inn." That makes me sad. In fact it brings me to tears whenever I think about it. I want my children to have their own "March Inn," and I want to capture our lives as they are growing and changing. I invite you to "march inn" to our lives. My hope is that you will catch glimpses of the real world. You will see our creations. You will see our chaos. You will see our affection. You will also see our frustrations, fears, and disappointments. Enjoy your march!

Good Friends

As I told you Friday, Frank and I were leaving town. We spent a wonderful weekend hanging out with good friends. It truly is a great group ~ easy going, accepting, not pretentious,

You know you are either really good friends or getting old when you are sitting around Friday evening and realize you need to be leaving for your dinner reservations and five minutes later six adults have piled into a Honda Pilot. No one showered. No one changed. No one made a phone call to check on their loved ones at home. I'm not even sure anyone used the restroom, brushed their teeth or hair, or put on lipstick.

I don't have too many pictures from the weekend. We talked about taking pictures more than we actually took pictures. Saturday the boys cooked us breakfast and then we went for a group bike ride. The remainder of the day was mostly spent on the beachfront deck watching college football while listening to the waves of the Atlantic crash on the beach. Michael had the foresight to suggest bringing a splitter, extension cords, and cable to run the television{s} outside. Way to go Micheal ~ what a great call that was! It was a good day for football for those of us with ties to either university in the state of Alabama! Roll Tide and War Eagle!

Sunday we were a bit more active ~ well at least the boys were. They played golf while the girls relaxed, and then we all went on a kayaking adventure.

Thank you to all of Frank's friends and their wives for being such good friends. I can't wait to get our families together over Christmas. It will wild with all thirteen children! Thank you also to all of our loved ones who graciously kept our little ones while we spent a relaxing weekend catching up and resting.

I close this on a sad note. My good friends' father 'n law passed away rather suddenly over the weekend. Please say a little prayer for Anne and her sweet, precious family. Frank and I know the pain of this loss all too well and so wish there was something we could do to make this time easier. All we can do is pray and let them know we are there for them... It helps!
