A Young Tigeress Woods

While we were in Gatlinburg, we took Lauren to a place called "Hillbilly Golf" to play putt putt, you ride to the top of the hill and then play down the hill. She loved it, she would hit the ball with her orange golf stick ( her words) and then pick the ball up, put it next to the hole and then push it the rest of the way in and proclaim " Ball in Hole" she still talks about it, even today she told me her golf ball was red, mommy's was green and daddy's was purple. She had the best time playing putt putt golf. Maybe we have a little tiger on our hands ?

Happy Fathers Day

A Little Girl Needs Daddy

A little girl needs Daddy for many, many things:Like holding her high off the ground where the sunlight sings! Like being the deep music that tells her all is right When she awakens frantic with the terrors of the night.
Like being the great mountain that rises in her heart And shows her how she might get home when all else falls apart.Like giving her the love that is her sea and air,So diving deep or soaring high she'll always find him there.

I took the girls to jumpsters
today for a little while, they
had a good time but Lauren's
favorite thing there was
a school bus that you sit in
and once she saw it there
was no more jumping for her. Jocelyn excited because they had a castle jump

The school bus that captivated Lauren

Tanglewood Farms

Unlike her Chinese cousin Annslee, Lauren does not like farm animals. We took her last weekend to
Tanglewood Farms which is a farm of miniature animals and she was only impressed with the pony ride at the end.
