Congratulations to Coach, one of the 2014 inductees to the
GA Sports Hall of Fame!!
We are so excited that we were able to go to Macon for the
festivities this weekend. We got all dressed up
on a trolley
To a really fun cocktail reception on Friday night at the
Hall of Fame, where we got to check out the displays (including the one about
Coach!) and learn more about each of the inductees.
We grandchildren were pretty well-behaved!
Although I did get pretty tired towards the end.
On Saturday, we returned to the Hall of Fame to play on all
the cool exhibits
And also get autographs from all the amazing athletes and
coaches that were there. Of course, we had our favorite
But it was also really fun to meet one of Coach's former
players, Guy McIntyre, who went on to play for the 49ers. He has an amazing Super Bowl and
championship ring collection!
On Saturday night, Mrs. Cindy was kind enough to spend a
girls night with Sophia, Audrey, and me, while James went to the banquet with
all the grown-ups.
I had a blast doing arts and crafts with "the
girls", and James loved meeting all the friends who came to see Coach's
induction, and listening to the inductees speeches and stories.
What a great group to be inducted with - we love you, Coach!
In addition to all of the official weekend events, we had
lots of fun playing with our cousins
And utilizing the hotel pool.
We were careful to record everything in the journals that
Mom gave us for Valentine's so that we'll be sure to remember it!
We were sad to say goodbye this morning,
But we had a great visit with Missie as she so kindly drove us to the airport, and it's always nice to return to our home! The snowman that Lilli and I worked so
hard to make last Monday has disappeared, along with most of the snow!
It was actually fairly "warm" out, even after a
weekend in GA. I hear that's going
to change soon, though - winter is not over for us yet!
We're hoping for a normal week this week, with no sick or
snow days. Cross your fingers for
