We have been planning on going to Tennessee for a few weeks now, and we finally made it down this past weekend. We were able to leave a day earlier than we planned, so we didn’t tell anyone, and surprised my family by arriving Thursday evening around dinner time. Ryan did really well on the way down, throughout all the many hours in the car while we were there, and on the way home as well, but he definitely doesn’t want to get in his car seat anymore! 😀
I love pigs. I don’t really know why; I think they just make me laugh.
And, as Sam pointed out this trip down, they’re one of the only animals that will pose for you!
Sam found a fuzzy caterpillar and showed it to Ryan. For the next 5 minutes or so he chased it around.
I love these two. And Tennessee. Spring time in Tennessee reminds me how much I truly do love that area. 🙂
Walking distance to a creek with tons of rocks to throw in it! It was Ryan’s dream come true!
He’s so cute. 🙂
We spotted a snake. Sorry, Mama.
It’s always fun to go down and see all the new animals, or see the ones that have grown up so much since the last visit. This is one funky-looking cow, but probably a sweetie!
This one is adorable and will probably grow up into a beautiful cow! I just wish I knew everyone’s name and lineage still!
More pig pictures because I can. 😀
One of the sows had JUST had piglets when we arrived, so it was neat to see them.
Aren’t they cute?!
Saturday morning we went to the Franklin Farmers’ Market where Claire, Kyle, and Luke were running the Belle Springs Farm lemonade stand/booth (delicious!!!). I love the Franklin Farmers’ Market. I got a Louisiana Crepe from Crepe-a-diem, and it was AMAZING! Has me all the more excited for the crepe truck here at Junction City to open up!
After grabbing lunch (for those who didn’t enjoy a Louisiana Crepe!) at Chic-fil-a, we headed to my childhood town, Tullahoma, to visit my uncle and his family. It was so nice to spend the afternoon just hanging out with them!
These two really got along wonderfully until Dylan went to see the new Avengers movie with friends.
Right before we left, we snapped a couple of family pictures. I love my crazy family!
Sunday afternoon Sam took a look at the suburban and Ryan and I hung out in the shop with him.
Token picture of one of my favorite spots! 🙂
The rest of the day was spent fellowshipping (wearing my new Fresh Apparel skirt!!! I’m LOVING it!), and I was enjoying myself too much to bother with my camera. Then came Monday, and the 8 hour drive home. 😦 But we had such a wonderful visit! It was so nice to catch up with family and friends; hopefully we’ll make it back down before too long. 🙂
