Every day is a Good Hair Day in Arizona

March 13th, my niece, Nicole was married in Arizona at the Mesa Country Club and Breeann and I took a trip out there to see the happy event. Everything was beautiful and we got to see all of my family! This is my mom, my sister-in-law, Taunya, my brother Rendell, my sister Jennifer and me and Bree at the reception. My family is hilarious, and we laughed all night long!

Nicole was a GORGEOUS bride!

Bree and I were messing around in my mom's backyard. Yes, I know we look silly and we are silly. (I miss Bree!:( )

Here we have Jen, my dad, me, my other brother, Tim lurking in the back (he is Nicole's step dad), my dad's wife Stephanie, and Rendell. Good times.

Something besides soccer!!

Savannah has broadened her horizons and has decided to try the track team this year at Broussard Middle School. She has competed in three track meets so far and placed 3rd, 2nd, and 3rd again in the mile. She is in 7th grade and has to compete against 8th graders, too. We think she's pretty awesome :) Her best time so far is 6:37. We're impressed!! Maybe it's all that running in soccer . . . .(yes, it always comes back to that)

Tobasco Shootout Champions!!

Iberia Soccer Association

Here are the results of Savannah's first soccer tournament of the year! Click on the above link (Iberia Soccer Association) to see a picture of her team (with Coach Rich standing by Mr. Bottle :) Sav is on the top row, second from the right). It was VERY windy and cold that weekend in New Iberia, but she played great and they came out on top. They played a couple teams that were a year older than them so we are extra impressed. I know it sounds crazy, but I love to go to these games and watch the kids play. The more you know about soccer, the more you grow to love it. The kids really learn about playing as a team, committment, and good sportsmanship. Not to mention, they stay in great shape running up and down the field, sometimes for 80 minutes straight. Now that's endurance! When we buy a decent camera, we will post some action photos. The one we have now just doesn't take good soccer pictures.
