Lions Super Pull of the South

The 33rd Annual Lions Super Pull of the South in Chapel Hill, TN was last weekend. This truck and tractor pull is held every July in Chapel Hill, TN and has been named "Pull of the Year" in 1988, 1993, 1994, 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2008 by the National Tractor Pullers Association.

This NTPA sancitioned Invitational event draws all the top names in the Super Stock Tractors, 2-Wheel Drive Trucks, 4-Wheel Drive Trucks, Unlimited (multi-engine) Tractors, and the Mini-Rod Classes.

The Excitement never stops as these horsepower monsters roar down the track, chasing their share of over $100,000.00 in prize money, and bragging right for a year as the "Chapel Hill Champ".

If you live in Middle Tennessee, you know all about truck and tractor pulls.

Neat things going on at Crafts Crossing:

One very important happening place was at the G'day Cafe:

We ended our last VBS day on Saturday afternoon with water slides. Lovin' it!

Our little ones learned to kinda cheat....sit on the robo surfer instead of standing (:

We closed out Boomerang Express at the Manchester Recreation Center on Sunday night.

I thank God everyday that I am entrusted to be our children's coordinator. They are such blessings to me!

Sorry so long!

Well, I apologize for the lack of posting over the past several weeks. Here is my excuse: Daughter's wedding and Vacation Bible School. This is our church, Ivy Bluff United Methodist Church in Cannon County, TN.Beautiful steeple donated by Mrs. Lois Nunley in memory of her husband. What a beautiful sight.

Beautiful wood work created by a member when the church was built in the early 1900's.

Whew, what several weeks we have had! Here are a few pictures from Lana and Joe's wedding.

Shower at church:
Lana and her mom, Melanie, opening gifts and writing down gift givers.

Lana happy after opening all of her gifts....
Pics from rehearsal, thank goodness it doesn't show mom crying starting early. I had to get ready for the big day.
Amber and Autumn, beautiful nieces of my daughter-in-law Kelly, were the flower girls, sweet little man, Yates, son of now brother-in-law Mike and wife, Heather, Ashley and Kelly who were bridesmaids.
Now for a few pics from the big day: Kelly starting doing everyone's hair at 7:00 at morning:

Sign we posted at the road to turn to the church from Highway 53S.

Lana and her brother, Justin, sharing a family meal before the wedding, leftovers from the rehearsal dinner. Sweet!!!
Kelly adding a few more last minute curls to Ashley's hair:
One of Lana's favorites, with her cow"girl" boots on. And no, she did not wear these during the ceremony even though I think they were more comfortable.

The MEN, Left to Right: Groomsman-Mike Junkins, Brother of the groom-Mike Geren, Ring Bearer-Yates Geren, nephew of the groom, JOE THE GROOM, Joe Geren Jr., father of the groom, and Joey Geren, son of the groom. Good looking guys!
