Photo shoot and hair cuts with the Grand daughters and Jenny.

Jenny asked me to come and watched the girls while she got her hair trimmed and highlighted. I decided to pack lunches for us before I left the house since her appointment was at noon. I love these new “to go” salad containers from Aldi’s.

After the “photo shoot” we headed to the beauty salon and Kinsley got her hair trimmed first. The girls and I headed home for lunch while Jenny stayed there. Kinsley enjoyed having a picnic at her house and ate lots of salad, guacamole, and oranges. She was ready for her nap after that. After all, it takes a lot of energy being a cute for the camera!IMG_1351IMG_1356

Beach fun with Grandkids Hilton Head SC Aug 2014

Troy and Jenny planned a beach trip to celebrate the end of summer just before Landon started back to school. I was asked to join them, though Roy wasn’t able to get away from work. We had lots of fun but it was lots of work keeping three kids safe in the water and sun. The day I went ahead with Landon to the beach and out into the water with the boogie board was so like all the days I remember in the past with our boys in the water. Hulehan boys are fearless when it comes to the water. They all love the challenge of catching and riding the waves. Landon was very ready for a nap that afternoon.

Kinsley was scared of the waves until Jenny put her on her back and walked out into the waves. Then just about the time we had to leave Kinsley realized she liked sitting in the water with the waves! Macie must have loved the sound of the waves because she seemed to sleep the whole time we were at the beach. I brought the water buckets that we had when our boys were very little. Kinsley enjoyed watching the water either pour out of the smiley face or drip through the bottom. Those buckets have provided hours of fun in the water. Only two of the three stacking buckets have survived the years.

The resort where we stayed had tennis courts and racquetball courts. If Landon wasn’t in the pool or in the ocean, he was eager to head to the tennis courts or the racquetball courts. Troy also treated him to a round of miniature golf. Jenny was one busy gal nursing the baby between keeping everyone happy, fed, and safe. We worked as a pretty good team, I thought. It is the trip you remember as being exhausting but full of lots of wonderful memories!

Opening BJU faculty/staff meeting and dining event 8-18-14

Looking at these pictures you would wonder what fancy restaurant at which we were eating but it was the Bob Jones University Kambach Dining Room (the newly remodeled main dining room). It just so happened that the opening night of the BJU faculty/staff meeting and dining event fell on the actual evening of our 35th wedding anniversary. So I teased Roy that he went to a lot of trouble and expense to add so many friends to our guest list and so much gourmet food to celebrate our anniversary. Bill Apelian even came to our table and beautifully sang Happy Anniversary to us. The Armark Food Service folks did an amazing job with this event! The menu included roast beef with a variety of bread options, brushetta and a gourmet salsa, delicious grilled fresh vegetables, fried ravioli with pasta sauce, chocolate fountain with lots of fresh fruit and marshmallows for dipping, and variety of other desserts so beautifully displayed. This dinner was the first big event served by the food service folks following a summer of complete renovation of the back kitchen and preparation area. All the fine renovations that you see in these pictures were done last summer. This summer they had to dig up and redo everything in the back area starting with the drains in the floor and the floor itself. So this was the summer to replace the fryers, ovens, vents, steamers, dishwashing machine, etc. etc. So it was a celebration evening for Roy to see all the work he was responsible for coming to a complete end (except fine tuning stuff of course). Praise God that this remodeling project is done! The students have just about the finest college dining facility available. Thanks to Adam Summers for leading the Armark folks.
