(Poor Laney. Her little bookbag has diapers, wipes, extra clothes, lotion, juice, and a snack stuffed inside. It tipped her right over when she tried to wear it!)

On Saturday, we met GramB and PopPop in Blowing Rock, NC for the day. We walked, ate, shopped, played, ate, fed the fish, watched the ducks, ate, chased a bunny, hiked, ate, danced, ate, and laughed. It was a good day!
Okay, Dada, I am ALL stretched out and ready to run!
Hi Mommy! Hi Lulu! Hi Nannie! Hi Papa Lee! Do you see me? I am running! Cheeeeeeeeeeese! Did you get the picture! I am running fast like Dada! :)

I am pleased to announce my candidacy for leader of the free world in charge of all things fun, entertaining, and happy.
You may question my experience, but I am well qualified. Just last weekend, while laying in the backyard looking at stars with Daddy, I found it....the wishing star.
I made my wish.....a 'blue blanky' because that's what I really need. And because I can make things happen, I had the blue blanky by the end of the week.
So, what does this mean? do wishes work? maybe, maybe not, but we're going to see because I made another wish today. This time, for a new swing set....the reaction wasn't quite the same as the 'Blue Blanky' wish, but I'm holding strong.
"What about the existing swing set?" I Love It! But I'd love a new one too!
So when the phone rings at 8 p.m. and the stars are starting to show up in the sky....who do you want there to pick up the phone and make that wish?
I thank you for your vote. God Bless America and Daddy (the pushover). Keely.

Then it was time for some outside playtime (tickling) at Castle Morris....
..followed by a visit to Pals, a popular local hamburger joint, with the BEST sweet tea in the world! (Laney and Keely love their sweet tea...)
After naptime for Lulu, a challenge after all that sweet tea, we were off to Bays Mountain to see some animals. It was the first time ALL the animals were awake and easy to see, including the wolves and the river otters! Then, a stop at Nannie and Papa Lee's house turned into a dinner visit so that Keely could "finish" her nap!
We ended our Tour De Kingsport at Discovery Ice Cream, a cute downtown ice cream shop, where the girls put in a token and get "ice cream from a robot". This place just so happens to have the BEST cake batter ice cream on the planet! Then, we took our ice cream out into the downtown streets for "Bluegrass on Broadway", where the kids showed Aunt Les how to cut a rug! It was so much fun to have such a great friend share some of our favorite places with us! Come back soon, Les! We love you!
.....Of course, that was last week, before Laney got pneumonia! We have since been stuck at home with a very miserable child! Fun times!

Our Champion has been chosen.
After a few days (or minutes) of trials, one athlete stood out above others and natural ability prevailed.
Training is expected to begin this week between episodes of barney and chasing the dogs. Training will include balancing on the couch, bouncing on daddy's stomach(hopefully avoiding incidental injury to the old man), jumping over toys, falling off the 'big ball', laughing uncontrollably, and screaming loudly and without reason as often as possible.
Since concrete ponds are limited in East TN, we will be utilizing our top secret "Tiger Training" facility.
Team Morris officially accepts the Nicholson Beach Ball Challenge.
We look forward to the competition (no old people allowed),

This is an important week, as we kick off start of training for the St. Jude Marathon.
Back again, is Team Whine-O, now 4 strong and recruiting more. Everyone is welcome. Only requirement is a willingness to suffer and team membership comes with all the whine you can stand.
Since we're in the "Why" phase with Keely, I've find myself asking why moreQuote of the day:
often. So, why do we do it? In true form to most answers of Keely's questions; "I don't know". It must be the shiny metal at the finish line.
