Car packed – plenty of food/toys/etc for a baby, check!
Cute, blue eyed baby, check!
Off to Nashville we go!
Spilled puffs all over the back seat (Me, not BooBoo. Go figure)
Found out nephew/cousin Andrew was born! Sad we won’t be there to hold him all fresh, but I guess he’ll still be pretty new when we get to see him in a week and a half. (still, poo, because I reeeally wanted to hold him when he was so brand spankin new.)
Took several naps with Blanky and Bean.
Was mostly happy.
But had a few slightly fussy moments.
Mommy brought current favorite toy: big orange balloon. Which made us cheer right up. Also… new toys especially for our trip from Aunt Rachie (Thanks RaeRae!)
Bekah’s actual birthday!
Went to Lipscomb to visit Bekah, gave her 21 presents
Then went out to eat with her and my friend Lauren
Visited with Aunt Judy
Partied with Bekah and her friends
For her 21st birthday
AND got to see Aunt Jessi
(fewer pictures than I’d like, but we spent a lot of quality time with family and I forgot to take some good shots!)
Had lunch with Stephen’s Aunt Bev’s kids and their kids! (on his dad’s side)
Oh, also…. LOTS of rain
Had dinner with all of Janie’s family
LOTS more rain… flooding and tornado watches.
Thankfully, most of the family was able to get to and from the dinner.
We got home safe and sound Monday night.
David didn’t do as well as on the way there (he was a perfect ANGEL) but still did pretty good considering it’s an 8.5-9 hr drive and we only stopped once.
Glad to be back. Thinking about those people who lost so much in the flooding in Tennessee.
