Creamed Corn Class

I helped coordinate a class for our local canning plant to teach people how to make creamed corn. We had a wonderful group of people from four surrounding counties and even some work friends from Gwinnett County!

Hot Air Balloons in Cordele

Mama, Wyatt, Georgia, and I went to Georgia Veterans State Park in Cordele to see the hot air balloon glow for the Watermelon Festival last week. Justin was working so he missed out on the fun. We loved watching the balloons get set up even though the gnats and the heat were straight out of hades. We were able to take a tethered ride that just went up about 30 feet or so but I can at least say I did it now! When we were heading up, Mrs. Desiree called and said they were there. They were able to see us go up. Amanda, Michael and the kids wanted to do a tethered ride too so they grabbed Wyatt and took him for a second turn. Lucky kid!

Mexico Beach

The week of Memorial Day, the Cook and Perry families were going camping at Mexico Beach in Florida. Wyatt was going down with Sheldon and Desiree for the week. Justin and I talked to Amanda and decided we would come down for the weekend and surprise everyone. Even Wyatt didn't know we were coming. We showed up Friday night and stayed until Tuesday. Unfortunately a stomach bug was going around so they ended up coming home earlier than planned on Thursday. We had a good time spending one very long day on the beach, a day exploring Goodwills, and some fun times in the pool. Wyatt got a pretty rough sunburn the first day so he took it fairly easy the rest of the week. Georgia did great because we had a little tide pool in front of us and Mrs. Desiree had a kiddie pool for her too. We took her little beach tent and she slept for 3 hours one day.
