Happy Birthday to you and you and you!

March is a very happy month at our house because we have three Egan birthdays - John and Mitch share 3/3 and Conner was born on St. Paddy's Day.

The guys all camped out for John's 70th in the Texas hill country and had a blast. Later in the month I cooked them a surf and turf dinner here at the house and we enjoyed some birthday cake and basketball.  Happy birthday to all!

Basketball brings the Egans together

The Rattlers are ready for hoops time. We were in South Bend
for a visit and got to see Jack's game. He is quite the player!
All the practice pays off.
Jack listens as Coach Scott huddles up the boys

Jack is fast on the court this camerawoman could
barely capture his image. Go Jack!
Then it was on to Indianapolis where we met the TSD Texas Rangers
for their First Place finish in the Iron Five Classic over California, Indiana,
and Maryland.

Conner was amazing on the court the night of the final
game with California School for the Deaf(Fremont).
He cut down the net and held that trophy high!


We had a very Merry Christmas this year as all the kids and grandkids made it to our house the week after Christmas. We were so happy to see them! Here are a few pictures of our fun.

Football season is here

We love to drive over to Austin to watch Conner play football for TSD.  He has a great coach
who is so positive and encouraging to the boys. They have a great time playing against teams from Austin, San Antonio and next week they travel to Abilene for a saturday game,

These two young fellows met in 1966 and trained together on Huey Helicopters.It was great to see so many helicopter pilots reunited in New Orleans last week.

You cannot drive through southeast Tennessee and NOT stop in Lynchburg for a tour.

In Murfreesboro we stopped to see Marcie and she gave us a beginners lesson on her red hot Vespa

We will have to try a Vespa tour.This is fun to drive!

Our final stop this week was at Taos' FIRST BIRTHDAY party.
Wow! I cannot believe that both my babies are one.
Happy Birthday Taos Mitchell Egan ! ! !
