Jesse is famous!

Carter's youngest uncle, Jesse, went down to Louisiana last December to be an extra in a movie called The Longshots. When Jason and I went to the movies today to watch Get Smart, we saw a preview to it and Jesse was in it! The link to the movie's website is and he is the blond boy in the cafeteria scene. Next stop, Hollywood!

Father's Day 2008

I know this is a week late, but it has been a crazy week! Jason had a great Father's Day (and Carter had a good time, too)! We went out to Mark's and Sheila's to celebrate the day, so we got to swim and ride golf carts and 4-wheelers. Definitely a very manly day.

The pictures above show Carter with his cousins Carson, Claire, and Zane. They are really great kids, and we can't wait to move out to Hwy 351 so that we can see them more. Carter is really lucky to have so many cousins!

Carter and I are so blessed to have Jason as a father and husband. He really does a great job! And to all of the grandfathers out there, thank you so much for being the best Grandpas and Papaws a boy could have!

Carter's and Jason's New Rides

This has been a big weekend here at the Turner house! When Carter and I got home yesterday, there was a huge box waiting for him in the carport. His grandfather from KY had sent him a 4-wheeler! After spending 30 minutes trying to open the box and cleaning up 2 lawn and leaf bags full of shredded paper ( thanks, Dad), we were finally ready to start playing with his new toy. When we took it outside he wouldn't ride it, but he did have a lot of fun pushing and pulling it around the yard. When Jason got it out this morning, Carter took to it even more! He rode it in the house while we were getting ready and had a great time. I think that he will be riding it quite a bit this summer.

Today Jason also got a new ride! He bought a new road bike to ride for exercise and to ride to work and back. He has been riding some for the last month or so, but it has been on a mountain bike and he really wanted to get a road bike because it is more similar in exercise to running. He bought it at one of the local bike shops, and he is very excited to get it out in the morning.

The Mamaws Were Here!

For those of you who didn't know, my grandmothers Bonnie Newman and Garnet Witten came to visit us last week! We had a great time, and it was wonderful to get to spend the time with them. Carter warmed up to them as soon as they got here, and he learned their names very quickly. I call them Mamaw B and Mamaw G, so he called them "B" and "G".

The Mamaws cooked for us 3 times while they were here! We definitley enjoyed that (although Carter stuck to his diet of mostly cucumbers and tomatos). We also took them out to the land where we are going to build, and Mom took them to Mtn. View. The last day they were here, Jason grilled out for them, which was just a small payback for all of the cooking they had done for us!

We all really enjoyed the visit- can't wait to see them again!
