Don't give up on me! I'm trying to be better about keeping our blog updated and after the weekend we just had, there's plenty to post. However, Leigh Anna accidentally took the camera back to Liberty with her. We had some great pictures from Bennett's first birthday and Greta's dedication. Hopefully, I'll get them posted soon.
In addition to the fun grandchildren events, we enjoyed seeing lots of friends at NCA's Homecoming Friday night. Leigh Anna brought her cousin Kyle home with her for the weekend along with two great friends, Julie and Cimber. In Raleigh on Saturday we all hung out with Adam and Nat and their friends Jackie and Jay. (Great dinner Nat!) Then watched the Alabama-Georgia football game. (Not-so great.) Sundays at Providence are always awesome. We truly leave there with our hearts full and blessed.
Check back for pictures soon.

The main reason for Mom and Dad's visit was the celebration of Ward Tank's 25th anniversary. On Thursday there was a golf tournament with about 150 participants and then a luncheon on Friday with employees, past and present, suppliers and clients and lots of friends of Ward Tank from over the years. I was so proud of Dad as well as Uncle Donnie and Jon. Lots of hard work and God's blessing has yielded a good reward. When Jon introduced Dad as the founder of the company and asked him to say a few words, the DJ started playing the Bama fight song before Dad could speak. At the end of the song most of the crowd yelled, "Roll Tide Roll" at just the right time! What an appropriate intro for Dad!!
