Carole Robison and family tour New York
Carole Robison of Holly Springs and her daughter Eleanor Horton and granddaughter Anna Carroll Horton of Collierville spent a few days recently touring New York. They attended several Broadway shows while here.
Grady Brooks, son of Mary Clay and Gene, celebrated his 5th birthday on Sunday. The party was held at his home. The guests enjoyed an afternoon of playing flag football in the front yard, hide and go seek, whacking a pinata from a tree and making pinch pots from clay. Afterwards, they were treated to a wonderful mummy themed birthday cake made by Talisha Bolden, putrid punch loaded with gummy worms and “alien brownies.”
Friends of Grady’s who attended were Thomas Stewart, Bowen Stone, Mabry Freeland, Fort and Mason Jones, Mary Neely and Jake Jones, Erin Burleson, Jacob Truss, Paige Foshee, CJ Samoly, Amanda Barnett and Grady’s big sister, Caitlyn. Everyone had a grand time!
Hank Wheeler of Newnan, Ga., was the weekend guest of Mary Clay and Gene Brooks. He made the special trip to attend his grandson’s birthday party. While here, he also visited with his other daughter, Laura.
Shelby and Clay Jones and children, Fort and Mason, of Humboldt, Tenn., spent Sunday afternoon at the Brooks’ home for Grady’s birthday.
