Mick and Linda Petty celebrated their 35th anniversary Saturday, with a trip to AJ's Fish House at Lake Fork for dinner. On Sunday they went to Rockwall to help their daughter, Tara Petty, celebrate her birthday.

Tommy and Patti Wiebold celebrated the birthday of Tommy's brother, Mike Wiebold, on Saturday. Mike and his wife, Terri, and daughter, Michaela, of Ennis, got in early Saturday morning. They went to the Hopkins County Stew Cook-off and, although arriving there a little late, enjoyed some very good stew and walked around to see the stew cooks' decorations at their respective lots. Mike is an amateur photographer and he got a lot of great pictures at the park. Following the stew, they went to do some shopping before returning home later in the day. They celebrated Mike's birthday with a dinner that Patti prepared — beef and chicken fajitas — then enjoyed sitting on the porch in the nice weather. Afterward, they were all in front of the television to watch the Rangers and Cardinals play baseball. On Sunday they enjoyed a late breakfast, and around noon Mike and his family returned home to Ennis.

Chip and I, along with Malcolm, Tiffany and the kids were in Sulphur Bluff on Friday evening and Saturday morning to watch Kenden Joslin play in his last Little Dribblers basketball games of the season. On Saturday afternoon, Chip and I went to Boxelder (near Clarksville) for the wedding of our friends, Megan Wells and Todd McCoy. The beautiful church wedding was followed by a lovely reception and delicious meal at Crystal Lake.
