Scooter Rides

Mom invited us over for lunch on Sunday afternoon. The ziti was awesome, but the highlight for the kids was actually riding on Papa D's scooter! Dad kicked it off, but then Ben and Lee finished up the job giving all the kids scooter rides. They loved it!

The kids spend the rest of the afternoon hanging out and playing with their cousins!

Beautiful Mountain Views

We had a wonderful time on our vacation to the Great Smoky Mountains. I'd forgotten how much the area has to offer! Here are a few final pics of the beautiful views we saw while we were there!

We enjoyed every minute of our family vacation...can't wait to go back again!

Lovin' Gatlinburg!

We started our day in Gatlinburg with an early lunch at Hard Rock Cafe! The kids had fun and we enjoyed the burgers!

Listening to all this great music made these girls get up and dance!
After our yummy lunch, we were off to the aquarium to check out some cool sea creatures!
Checking out the turtlesThe kids loved the enormous catfish...and the great shark exhibit!
After the Aquarium we did a little shopping for souvenirs. And of course, a day in Gatlinburg is not complete without stopping for a scoop of Ben & Jerry's on the strip!

We like to go FAST!

We took the kids to see Blackbear Jamboree one night (so much fun!) and then took them to ride go-carts. They all loved it...even Emma Taylor after a little coaxing!

Splash Country

Splash Country is such a fun waterpark!

Fun Days at Dollywood

We had a great trip to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg last week. We spent four days between Dollywood and Splash Country, which was tons of fun! In addition to that we visited the Aquarium, spent some time on the strip in Gatlinburg and even drove some go-carts! Here are a few pictures from Dollywood...

Family Vacation in the Smokies

Lee, the kids and I are leaving tomorrow for our first family vacation. We're headed to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge and the kids are so excited they can hardly stand it! I bet Anna Grace won't sleep a wink tonight, which could be a good thing....kids sleeping in the car on the way sounds good to me! We're well equipped though...new car with room for everybody, plenty of DVDs and ipods full of music. We have lots of fun planned and are looking forward to spending a great week together. I'll post pictures soon. Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy 4th of July!

We had a great day for 4th of July festivities in Tupelo! We all went over to Lee's Aunt Bonnie and Harold's house for lunch. Lee's whole family was there and this year they invited my family too, so Mom, Dad, Ben and Cameron joined us! We ate all kinds of good stuff...most importantly the yummy ice cream! The kids had a wonderful time playing in the hot tub, which is filled with cool water in the summer!

Loving the "pool!"
We sure enjoyed celebrating with everyone!

Sweet Smile

Harrison had his new tooth installed on Thursday, so he has his sweet smile back to normal! We stopped by Granna's office after his appointment, so here he is posing with her. He looks pretty pleased with his new tooth! Wheew....so glad that's done!
