Thanks to C.J. Hughes for some more great running news: Auburn runners participated in Saturday's "Run Your Cookies Off 5K" held in Smithville. They did great. Kiley Hughes placed 2nd in the 10-19 age division with Adrianna Reed right behind her for 3rd in the same division. C.J. was 1st in the 30-39 division. Former Auburn native Sam Morris placed 2nd in the 40-49 male division after only a few months into 5k training. Working hard Auburn crew.
Doug and Cheyrl Pursell, Leslie Pursell with Randy and Connie Alsup enjoyed a trip to Pigeon Forge. They enjoyed having their pictures made with some popular stars at the Hollywood Star Cars Museum and the Hollywood Wax Museum. A game of Putt-Putt Golf was worked into their schedule along with the Hatfield and McCoy Dinner Show
Whew! What a week at our house! With VBS beginning Sunday night the 5th, our grandchildren, Rylon and Amaieah Morrison and Kullon Patrick spent the week with us so they could attend. It'll be Shiloh Patrick's turn next year.
Granddaughter, Adrianna Reed, spent the night also to help out. (Praise the Lord!!) Several afternoons were spent in the Reed pool with William and Grant Buterbaugh. Wednesday afternoon we took off to Murfreesboro to the Kid's Castle at Old Fort Park for a McDonald's picnic followed by some great fun. This also included Janna Reed and Gracie Smith.
