Spring Break




This week we had visitors from Texas. The kids' cousins were here for spring break. They had a blast! On Monday, we all went to Cade's Cove to sight see and have a picnic. The kids loved running in the meadows backdropped by the pretty mountains. On Tuesday, we split up into girls and guys. Emma and cousin Becca got makeovers at Libby Lu's to look like Sharpay from "High School Musical". Cousin Kate got her ears pierced and then we did a little shopping for Easter atire. Jackson went with cousin Jacob and cousin Nate to play miniature golf with the big guys (except Josh, he had to study). Wednesday we went to see "Enchanted" (Emma's 3rd Time). We love that movie. Mom too- Patrick Dempsey is pretty McDreamy in it! They spent their last day on Thursday doing a big Easter Egg Hunt before they left today. We had a great time and can't wait until the next visit!

How fun! I didn't know they were coming in.

Not everybody looks happy in that picture either. Must have been a long day. :)

Ha! No, the shot was taken early in the day, and it wasn't too cold. The perturbed faces (thank you, spell check) were mostly from having to do the group shot. (Although, our older kids were more lukewarm about Cades Cove. -- No makeovers. No video games.) But we enjoyed the trip a lot. I think my favorite part was taking the toddler boys out to mini-golf. (Jacob went with papaw -- the serious golfers.)
