Happy Birthday/ Our Weekend

We would like to wish (better late than never) two of our very faithful blog readers a very happy birthday today! I think its so neat that Nana and Betty Ward celebrate birthdays on Valentine's Day. So we hope you had a very special one today!

The kids and I had a great day today. They had the day off due to a teacher's meeting so its been nice to hang out today on Valentine's Day. I really wish David would have had the day off, too. They woke up to their Valentine's baskets at the foot of their beds.
I decided this year just to do candy because we went on a special weekend trip so that was their gift this year.  Back a few months ago David was able to get us tickets to see Tim Hawkins. For those of you who aren't familiar with him he is a christian comedian and he is hilarious! We have been fans for two years now. The kids think he is funny, too. He is funny, goofy and crazy all rolled into one. Matt can quote Tim word for word. We have two of his dvd's and we enjoy them so much. Tim just so happened to be doing a show at Hope Church in Memphis the weekend before Valentine's. David got us seats in the front row! Now that made me and the kids very nervous because Tim is known for going out in the crowd and being crazy so we did not want him to come near us. He didn't thank goodness. I hate I didn't get many pics with my phone this weekend, but I did snap this one of Matt.
He had been sooo excited all day about Tim Hawkins and by the time it was 7:25 he was counting down the time until Tim took the stage. It was so good to hear McKenzie laughing the entire time. You just can relate to everything Tim jokes about because its either what you are thinking and too afraid to say it or something you have been through yourself. He just relates it to everyday life and jokes alot about his wife and kids.
We got to Memphis Saturday afternoon and did a little shopping before checking into our hotel. David and I chose our favorite Side Porch for our "Valentine's dinner with kids". After great food, it was time to head to the show. On Sunday, we went to our usual Miss Polly's downtown for breakfast and then Starbucks for hot chocolate for me and McKenzie. We hung out at the hotel until check out time, then headed to a couple of stores. David took us to Five Guys for a late lunch. Here is a picture of McKenzie and Matt before checking out of the hotel.
I hated to see the weekend come to an end. We are definitely going back if he comes to Hope next year! Enjoy this clip of Tim Hawkins!!
