Weekend in Memphis

Marvin and I traveled over to Memphis, Tennessee for the Memorial Day Weekend. Our nephew, Jeff, turned 30 and Lee and Lanier threw a big birthday celebration for him. We were so glad we could be there.  Unfortunately I did not remember to take my camera and I only got a few pictures on my phone camera!!

We started Saturday afternoon off sitting by the pool at the University Club while the children swam and jumped off the diving board! It was the perfect afternoon for sitting outside...not too hot and a gentle breeze to cool us off. Supper was delish BBQ and ribs...A Memphis tradition! We also had Muddy's cupcakes for dessert, one of my favorite things.

Sunday was church with all the family. Our nephew, Lee, Jr. was in town from Mobile with his wife, Meredith and children, Lee 3, Ellis and Paul.  We enjoyed visiting with these great nieces and nephews that we seldom see.

After church and lunch we went for an afternoon at the pool at Jeff's girlfriend's house. Sarah and her family were so sweet to have us and it was nice getting to know the Stimson family.

My brother in law, Lee, makes the most beautiful salads!! 
Lanier made everything extra special for Jeff's birthday dinner. We had Johnny Musetti at Jeff's request along with salad and bread. Dessert was THREE small cakes from Muddy's Bakery....Chocolate, Plain Jane and Lemon. One cake for each decade of Jeff's life!!

I was helping Lanier serve so I did not get a picture of Jeff blowing out his candles!!

We were thankful for nephew and niece, Jessie's hospitality in allowing us to stay at their house while they were on vacation at Orange Beach.

After a big breakfast of french toast and bacon Monday morning, we headed back to Alabama. Lanier had given us cupcakes to take home along with some Rodan and Fields freebies!! And a nice big pasta strainer for us to use in the kitchen. We always enjoy sharing "happies" with each other.  Now it is Lee and Lanier's time to come and visit us!!

Sounds like a fun time and the food makes me hungry!

We got moved and we rec'd a full price contract on our last house this past week. God has richly blessed us.

Thanks for dropping by to visit friends. Thanks for the compliment Terri, I put my larger part behind the Congrats Mildred on that full price offer. It is good to know that God is watching over you and your sweet husband.
