4 tha Fam
WELCOME TO MY WORLD
Here's my 4th of July weekend wrap-up...with pictures
On Thursday, me and the fam headed to my hometown, Florence, SC for a small family reunion. On Friday, we had a HUGE cookout at the crib. The food (sorry no pics) was great! Afterwards, I hung out with Roody and Zell. On Saturday, we got together at Timrod Park to take pictures. Afterwards, we piled into 5 cars and made the hour drive to Myrtle Beach. I had a blast down there. The kids did too. We went to dinner and then we headed back to Florence. Later that night, I linked up with Roody, Zell, and Derrick for drinks and trash talkin'. Then, on Sunday we went to Mrs12's grandmother's house in Andrews, SC. We kicked it there for a day and came back on Monday. It was a great time! I really enjoyed myself.
Here is the sweetest lady to ever walk this Earth. This is my grandmother. She passed away when I was 6. I have soooo many fond memories of her. Everytime I see this picture of her I'm reminded of her sweet spirit. I know you're smiling down on the family that you created!
Here's a picture of my granddad. He passed away when I was like 2. He was a cool dude. He was a dude who was about his fashion. Peep his gear. Maaad fly. haaaaa
Here's a picture of the house that I grew up in. Not pictured is the basketball court where I honed my skills! LOL
Here's my dad. He's chillin with all of his grandkids. Taylor and Tyler (Damon's kids), Deion, Brandon, Kameron, and my niece MacKenzie (my sister Cara...not pictured)

Little cousin Jamison (Aja's daughter) takes a ride on her granddad's shoulders. That's my uncle. If he looks familiar to some of you sports fans, that's b/c his face is familiar. He used to play in the NFL. His name is Harry Carson. He played in the NFL for 13 years for the New York Giants. In 2006, he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
