Turtle Eggs?

Well, I’m not sure but I think she was working on laying some eggs! I went out in the yard this morning and couldn’t figure out why that squirrel wasn’t running off on the other side of the yard like they usually do. Turns out, it was a big old turtle that had dug a hole and was sitting over it like she was ready to drop some eggs! She is happy in Red Chute Bayou now!

Our Garden

I’ve been meaning to post some garden pictures since we first got started but I’m a little slow! Here is how Stephanie wanted to do a garden this year and I finally got around to getting the wood and dirt work done. This is when it all began on March the 18th.

Cope Athletic Awards

Cope had their annual Athletic Awards banquet and here is a picture of Natalie getting recognized for being on the dance line.  Next year it will be cheer leader.  I guess we will be going to a lot more games!

Hot Springs Day Trip

Stephanie and I went to Hot Springs over night during this spring break. We stayed at the Arlington for the first time. We’ve talked about staying there before but always changed at the last minute. That is one old hotel! Check out the view.

I usually don’t valet park but did here cause I have this bad idea that someone’s gonna cut into my car one day! Anyway, when we were leaving the old valet guy went on and on about Bill Clinton and how he put my car in Bill’s parking spot. The valet area for the Arlington is only for about a dozen cars but I guess Bill’s spot is the one right next to the door to the hotel!

Sheamus in Town!

We went to the World of Wheels Friday night and after waiting in line for a while, Caden got to see one of his favorite wrestlers. Sheamus was at this World of Wheels. Here is a little about Sheamus, Facebook Page and WWE page. In all honesty, he seemed like a good guy seeing him with the kids and even a bunch of disabled kids that couldn’t make it up on the stage. I’m not a wrestling fan like Caden!!, but glad Caden got to meet him since he didn’t seem like a jerk! Here are a few pictures. Click on the picture below to see a few more pics, taken with my phone and not very good though! Caden even got him to sign his shoe!
