Tennessee week

We spent the last ten days in Tennessee with all of our family! It was a wild trip and we were so lucky to see all our family!
We started the week at the farmers market and Tupelo Honey! It was such a nice day and we ran into lots of friends on Market Square. It was so fun being back home! The girls went to the cutest book shop for storytime and Princess Anna was the special guest. We also met Spider Man and he was so nice to Kaitlin. Saturday morning was definetly a highlight of the trip!
We ate on the Tennessee river at Calhouns
 
Kaitlin loved playing with her cousins
We got to see Aunt Ray and she helped me so much this week
She helped with baths almost every night and was just amazing
Twins
We got to see Didi in his play and he was amazing. He took us to my fav place in Knoxville, Litton's! It was amazing.
More cousin love
And Litton's was so good we went back for lunch
Twice in 24 hours! It was amazing
Kory traveled during the week and got home on Friday. We had dinner with friends on Friday
It was a wild and crazy week.... But it was home sweet home to me!

The birds were extra hungry. They would squak at Kaitlin and she would feed them

Such a fun day I don't want to forget

 

Daddy Dates

Kaitlin and Kory went on a date this week! They started with pancakes and bacon at Sunnystreet Cafe! They talked about lots of deep topics including what Kaitlin wanted to do when she grow up! Her response..... Get married! She had a great morning!
They rode bikes to the pond
Just loving summer skipping rocks
They also went to Relay for Life this week. It is an amazing fundraiser for cancer and Kailtin had a great time playing.
They had amazing inflatables and she also walked around the track about a mile in the walkathon.
Another great date
Such an important charity for our family. It was a special day to remember my mom!

Wild weekend

Rachel came I town to help us and we had so much fun with her! We had a busy Friday and Ray picked Kaitlin up from school! These two are soul sisters and have so much fun together!
We headed to the zoo on Saturday and had a great day.
Kaitlin and Ray fed the giraffes. I love Kaitlin's face in this picture so excited
Taking a picture with the peguins is tradition
Colin even knew he needed a Peguin picture
Rare family of four picture with the koala
Colin usually rides in the stroller at the zoo but he is very interested in the exhibits these days so Kory and Colin did some exploring.
This is the replica of worlds stinkiest flower
They have dinosaurs at the zoo for the summer and Colin loved them
We ate at Dewey's Pizza for dinner and had a fun time!
Rachel let Kory and I go on a date to see a movie and it was so nice to be out for a little
We came home for a little and the we heard a huge thump. Followed by crying.
Kaitlin hit her head on a nightstand falling out of bed . She had a big cut above her eye so we headed to the ER! We waited from 11-30 until almost 3:00 am. Kaitlin was awake for most of the wait and was so pleasant and really funny. She was very scared and asked every person we encountered if they were giving her a shot.
3 stitches later she is doing great and the cut looks really good.

We are so thankful Aunt Ray was here and was able to help us so much! It really was a wild weekend!
