Well, actually, she’s legally known as Lauren Bush Lauren because she still wants to keep the family name out of respect and also she doesn’t want people to get confused by calling her name twice! ;)

Thanks, dsutah. I do actually remembered Lauren’s wedding from last September. It was kind of disappointing that there was a lack of US media coverage about it. But I guess Lauren and her family wanted to keep the wedding ceremony under wraps and not make a big splash all over the press.

This is the one photo I could find of the Bush family together at the wedding. There’s probably many more we may never get to see.

President Bush rocked that speech yesterday. He definitely kicked butt. I get the impression that he is probably not very happy at the way Obummer has mishandled the economy and is also shocked how much the country has changed in the past three years he’s been out of office.

GW’s heart must be breaking now...can’t blame him. He should make more speeches like the one yesterday to remind the American public how good the economy was during his administration...low unemployment rate, millions of new jobs created, etc. It’s all because of his brilliant tax cuts. Dubya should go for it and not hold back!

He does have to be saddened at the miserable way this country is being handled.....as are all of us! Pray for REAL change in November!

Thanks for keeping us caught up with his comings and goings, Patty! :)

Here’s what President Bush and his family did this weekend…

Some very happy young girls were lucky enough to run into GWB at the Coffee Station diner in Crawford, TX on Friday, April 13th.

*******************************************

Yesterday (Sunday, April 16th), GW, Laura, Jenna and Barbara attended two events in Dallas - a fundraiser to help raise money for Barbara’s Global Health Corps organization. Later in the evening, the Bushes hosted an invitation-only screening for an AIDS documentary called “The Carrier” as part of the Bush’s Institute global health initiative. Sounds like they had a very good time but also helped to raise awareness for a worthy cause!

The Bushes also hosted a post-film screening dinner reception at nearby Marquee restaurant:

Here’s two in-depth articles that explain in great detail about the events the Bushes attended:

Tom Hicks, George W. Bush Team Up for Global Health

Posted on April 16th, 2012 12:40pm by Glenn Hunter (frontburner.dmagazine.com)

In Dallas’s tony Preston Hollow neighborhood, businessman Tom Hicks’ 33,000-square-foot estate — the priciest spread in Big D — backs up, literally, to Hicks pal George W. Bush’s place. So the former president didn’t have far to go Sunday afternoon for an event at Hicks’ home that raised money for the Global Health Corps. GHC is a nonprofit outfit promoting “health equity,” co-founded by Laura and George’s daughter, Barbara Pierce Bush.

Bush Institute's screening of 'The Carrier' gives preview of global health work

By Tom Benning / Reporter (Dallas Morning News)

10:21 AM on Mon. Apr. 16, 2012

Former president George W. Bush -- with the help of his daughter, Barbara -- offered a glimpse Sunday night of the global health work being done in Africa by his presidential center's public policy arm, the Bush Institute.

The preview of sorts came courtesy of an institute-sponsored screening of the documentary, "The Carrier," a rather remarkable film about a Zambian family struggling with HIV.

The Bush family -- including the former president's wife, Laura, and other daughter, Jenna -- attended the event at Highland Park Village. And the gathering in part benefited Barbara Pierce Bush's Global Health Corps, which to aims engage young professionals in the field

While we wait in anticipation for President Bush’s annual W100 warrior bike ride tomorrow, here’s the rundown on what he’s been up to these past several days!

Last Wednesday, April 18th, GWB traveled to Graniteville, South Carolina to speak to young golfers at the Junior Invitational Sage Valley Golf Club banquet dinner.

GW and Laura appeared at the annual Salvation Army board meeting dinner in Dallas last Thursday, April 19th.

**************************************************

Yesterday, Tuesday, April 24, the President gave a keynote address at the National Association of Chain Drug Stores meeting at the Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, Florida.

Some well-wishers wave goodbye to GW as left the premises. He was sitting in the back seat of the SUV. Even though you can’t see him, pretty sure he must have been smiling and waving happily at the crowd!

Later, W traveled up to Souderton, Pennsylvania near Philadelphia where he spoke to a sold-out crowd at Plumstead Christian School's annual “Founders Forum” at Calvary Church. Here he is waving to children and residents outside Calvary Church.

Plenty of articles on some of the events Pres. Bush attended:

Bush speaks to Junior Invitational participants

By John Boyette (The Augusta Chronicle)

Sports Editor

Wednesday, April 18, 2012 11:57 PM

GRANITEVILLE — Participants in the Junior Invitational at Sage Valley thought the golf tournament couldn’t get any better after last year’s inaugural event. Then they found out former President George W. Bush was speaking at the opening ceremony banquet Wednesday night.

“I’ve never heard of anything like that,” said George Cunningham, a 16-year-old from Tucson, Ariz., before Bush’s speech. “This is so amazing they can get that.”

Bush, the 43rd president of the country, elected in 2000 and 2004, is the honorary chairman of The First Tee. Proceeds from the Junior Invitational go to The First Tee, which supports initiatives for young people through golf, and last year $200,000 was split between the Augusta and Aiken chapters.

Pres. Bush spoke at the McKinney Foundation Education gala dinner in McKinney, TX on Saturday, April 21st:

President George W. Bush Wows Guests at MEF's Anniversary Gala

By Angie Bado, TSB Publisher

The speech, given by President George W. Bush at the McKinney Education Foundation's 20th Anniversary Gala on Saturday evening, was the highlight of the evening. As the former president walked to the podium, he was given a standing ovation and from that moment on, he was "it." With more than 600 guests in attendance, he held the rapt attention of the audience as he shared thoughts from his bestselling memoir, Decision Points. Bush also talked about his experiences during his years in the White House and what it's like to transition from Commander in Chief to being another Dallas resident.

President Bush impresses veteran County Sheriff

By Terry Box

OK, I have to share a story with you that gave me the big head for a while last [Saturday] night.

We were attending the McKinney Education Foundation Gala. Steve Stoler was the emcee. As we started to eat, Steve came over to our table, and said, "Sheriff, do you know what the President [George W. Bush] asked me in the green room?" I said, "I have no idea." He said he wanted to know "if Terry Box was still the Sheriff?" ...

Former President George W. Bush addresses executives at NACDS Annual

April 24, 2012 | By Michael Johnsen

PALM BEACH, Fla. — Former President George W. Bush addressed attendees of the National Association of Chain Drug Stores' Annual meeting here Tuesday morning, followed by a question-and-answer session with new NACDS chairman Greg Wasson.

Wasson asked Bush to talk about the inclusion of prescription benefits to the Medicare program, which went into effect during Bush's administration in 2006. "It makes no sense to have a system that does not change with the time," Bush said. "The market moved, but the government system didn't," he said. "The benefit is Medicare in the first place. … To modernize it required prescription drugs."

George W. Bush spoke about faith and freedom in Souderton Tuesday

Posted: Wednesday, April 25, 2012 6:00 am | Updated: 10:45 am, Wed Apr 25, 2012.

By Gary Weckselblatt

Staff Writer (phillyburbs.com)

Former President George W. Bush talked about faith, family and freedom to a crowd of about 1,200 people at Plumstead Christian School’s Founders Forum on Tuesday night.

Bush referenced his book, “Decision Points,” as he jumped from topic to topic in his speech and made fun of himself along the way, saying his critics “didn’t think I could read, let alone write.”

He said he was there to sell a book because “I’m living on a government pension.” It was “not a book to settle scores,” he said, rather “a data point for future historians.”

Great pics and thanks for posting them they sure are savers.

Did anyone watch Fox and Friends this morning, when they showed a clip of CNN's Piers Morgan interviewing the Dhalai (sp) Lama: Morgan asked him who his favorite president was and he replied President Bush. The left wing lunatic asked him which one and he replied the younger or the last one. I don't remember. Anyway CNN is showing the interview this evening. I am going to record it, because I want to see Morgan reaction

Thank you pattyvita for your faithfulness in posting these wonderful photos and updates of our beloved President, George W. Bush. He is a gentlemen of so much integrity that we will never know what he thinks of the current White House occupant and the devastation he has wreaked on our country. He and Laura must just be sick over this tragedy which gets worse every day. And now farm children are not going to be allowed to help on their own family’s farm?

We are in great peril. We can only pray that Americans will wake up before it’s too later.

W still looks amazing!!!! What a handsome dude!

I'm sure behind closed doors President Bush is definitely not pleased at the way Obummer has run this country into the ground. But knowing his humble personality, he is never going to speak his mind in public and express his opinions on what he thinks of the current political scene. He's moved on with his life and doesn't want to be involved in politics anymore.

Yup, totally agree with you, GWB is one good-looking guy. Boy, he's aging quite nicely! :)
