This past weekend we were able to take advantage of Labor Day weekend as Rob’s cousin threw a “non-funeral” birthday celebration for her Dad, Rob’s Uncle Frank. Since Drew was marching during halftime Friday night and didn’t want to leave after halftime we elected to get up at before the Rooster’s Call and get on the road early Saturday morning.

We arrived around lunch time and elected to grill out some burgers and let the kids swim. We rented a VRBO with my in-laws.

That evening Rob and Drew stayed back at the house to root on the Auburn Tigers. Trey and I went with my in-laws to Rob’s Grandma & Grandpa’s house for dinner. We got back in time to see the 2nd half.

The next morning we got up and visited the First United Methodist Church in Spring Hill. It was a very nice church. We always enjoy seeing how other churches do things, and many times makes us so thankful for everything our church has and is.

The afternoon was the “non-funeral” for Rob’s Uncle. It was a lovely celebration. I loved that some of Rob’s great Aunts and Uncles came!
