Beach Trip 2009

Keith and I got home on Sunday from the beach. The whole Lollar clan was able to go. We had a great time! I don't think any of us were ready to come home. I sat down tonight hoping to upload some pictures. Come to find out, we only took 400!!! That is no joke. I started uploading them to Wal-Mart and saw 400 pictures pop up...needless to say, these are just a few of the good ones! It was not easy picking! Hope you enjoy!

Keith's first encounter with a raw oyster! I think he actually liked it!

Dinner with Friends

Friday night, Keith and I rode to Starkville with Opal to meet April and JD for supper. We have not gotten together in so long! After debating on where to go, we finally made our way to Ruby Tuesday's. We have not eaten there in so long. It used to be our tradition to go there and have the chocolate tall cake. Yummy!! Anyway, we had a wonderful time! It was so great getting to catch up with everyone. I have missed these girls like crazy! :) Next time, we all hope Opal's husband, Mike, will get to join us.

April, Opal, and Nicole...just like old times!

I have tried, unsuccessfully, for three years to grow tomatoes. There is nothing better than a home grown tomato sandwich. I can get my fair share from Daddy and Papaw, but I just wanted to grow some myself. The first year I tried, I got nothing...not even one bloom. They just withered and died. Last year, I got blooms, but no tomatoes. This year...I have tomatoes! I picked my first two yesterday!! And I think they are beautiful! I have several more green ones. I can't wait to cut into these for a big ole juicy sandwich!

Last night, we also had a little visitor. Keith and I babysat Mikey for Opal. She is taking a workout class and needed someone to watch him. We had such a fun time! He is so sweet! I took a couple of pictures of him, of course. Enjoy!

Happy 4th!

Keith and I hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July! We did. Our long weekend started with Keith going out in his boat, built by him. This was not his first time out, but he finally got some pictures this time around. I am so, so proud of him! He still has to paint it and finish some other details, but he is loving it. When he got back, I made a 4th of July cake. This cake is so neat and so much fun to make. You can make it with any color...doesn't have to be red, white, or blue. Really neat! Friday night we met Opal and her baby, Michael, at Garibaldi's for some good ole' Mexican food. She then came by the house and hung out for a while. Michael is getting so big, but he is sooo cute and sweet!! We had a blast! Saturday morning Keith decided to go out again in the boat...and I was going to try to go with him. I have been very adamant about not going in the boat and I was very nervous. Needless to say, I got in the boat, but never would let go of the pier and was back on land in less than 5 minutes. We were just to close to the water for my liking!! For lunch, Mama, Daddy, and Papaw came for a cookout. We had a great time...it was just so hot! Enjoy the pics!
