Back Home

We just got back from spending the weekend in Crossville, Tennessee. My husbands mother's side of the family has a reunion the first Sunday of August every year and we have been able to go the past several years. We rent a cabin and the girls talk about "our cabin" the whole year. It is a pretty relaxing weekend. We swim, shop and visit with family. On the way to the cabin Lillie started to get really antsy and asked who could get her to the cabin the fastest. I told her Daddy, but he could only go the speed limit. She then begged, "Break the law, Daddy, break the law."

We decided to make smores this year and Lillie thought it was great, but the smores were too sticky for our little Gracie. She is weird about things making her too messy and sticky. She would eat the smores, but someone had to hold them for her and then immediately give her a wipe.

Here are pictures of the girls relaxing in the cabin.

Alex climbed a fire tower and snapped these pictures.

This is the view from the front door of our cabin.

I love the porch swing and so do the girls.

But, my oh my, how nice it is to be home.


  1. Looks like a lot of fun and such a nice thing for the girls to look forward to each year!

  2. I'm so glad you had a nice time! My kids are the same with smores...they taste so good but they don't like the mess.

  3. how cool! the view is beautiful!! jay goes down to crossville quite often to preach at a mission there. :)
