 We had both of our parents over today for dinner and dessert, and we are so grateful to have these men in our lives! Happy Father's Day!!!

Thank you Lord for all the blessings you have given us!

Hollingsworth 2018 Vacay!

Well, it was back to Navarre Beach, Florida this year and we went back to our routine of visiting our dear friends the Hixon in Montgomery on the way! Claire and MG were adopted together and are from the same orphanage!  I am so glad we have all kept our friendship going these 11 years! the girls are both going into 7th grade and had a blast reuniting.....we are always so grateful for the Hixon's hospitality!  Next year we anticipate taking a trip to China with them in June in leu of our beach trip...the time has come to show them (and Jesse!) China again!

I celebrated #45 on the beach this year and Lance through a little surprise for me one evening with cake for all!  I was overwhelmed with hugs and love! Thank you Lance!

This is what happens if Claire actually stops after a day on the beach.....
Jesse's girlfriend Emily joined us for 5 days of our vacation and had a blast as well.  She was a good sport with the cousins and did anything they wanted.  Loved having her along!

Some of the cousins walking on the Navarre pier to look for sea turtles...and we saw 7!!!!

Until next time, I'll miss you wonderful Navarre!

Claire's first Drive, Chip, and Putt!!!

Well, Claire attended her first ever Drive, Chip, and Putt, and this year it was held at TPC Southwind! Since Claire is so new to all of this, we had very little expectations.  Well, we were surprised when she just had some amazing drives and hit the pin on 2 of her 3 chips!  She won first place in her chipping division, and 4th overall.  Sadly, the top 3 advance to regionals in College Park, TN, but now Claire has something to look forward to next year!  We are so proud of all her hard work this past year with her coach.  She's having a blast in the process! Go Claire go!

Mother's Day Fun

 Well, these 2 are the other loves of my life, and we finally remembered to take a few pics after our delicious sushi dinner! Can't believe how fast they are growing, and how time has flown.  I am a blessed momma!

 I am now the odd man out. I'm just the one who sits in a cart and takes the some point I'm going to have to learn this sport....ugggggg....
We have been so proud of Claire's determination to get better at this difficult sport.  She is the one after school who asks for me to take her to the range day after day....I can't say no to this determination.......I pray she is this determined in all aspects of her life!!! Happy Mother's Day!
