Trip to TN and AR

We returned from our trip to TN and AR on Saturday. I am just now getting around to post this b/c it is a long one. I will let the pics do the talking and I will commentate. But, I would like to say how blessed I am to have such wonderful in-laws. They treat us like we are the only ones on earth when we are with them. They are wonderful to my girls and me! I love all them very much and appreciate all the time we got to spend with them.
Ok, now on to pics.
We left on July 13th and met John's parents at their cabin on the TN river. It was very relaxing! Hannah came too and was a big help. We also got a little visit from Kristin, Kinsey and Baby Blount #2! Thanks for coming to meet us.

Breckens favorite place!

Brecken loved Uncle George's lawn mower! And she didn't want anyone on it!
Hannah on her dirt bike!
Yeah, not sure...
Kayden talked Uncle Tommy into pushing her on the tire swing. I am pretty sure he was sore the next day. Thanks for being a trooper!
Yeah, not sure again!

The hostess with the mostess, Aunt Mary!
I think he needs help!

Last Wednesday, my sister, the girls and I headed to Little Rock area to meet with two of my college roommates. The three of us have kids all about the same age, so it was fun to see them all together. Thanks girls for a fun day!

I also got to catch up with another friend from college, Amanda, and her two kiddos...Gracen and Jackson. Fun times at the pool!

Aunt Terri was a good sport and took each of the girls out by themselves on a girls night. She and Kayden went to the movies then to eat ice cream!
When we are in TN we try to see some of our friends that were friend with John in high school, Adam and Candace, and their boys, Aaden, and Austin.

While I was gone my anniversary present came in the mail and I was so excited to see it! Although my husband didn't pick it out, or surprise me with it, he let me buy it...good enough for me. I LOVE IT!
Well folks, thats all she wrote....

Kayden had a sleepover Tuesday night with Lindsey and Emma. These girls go to church and school together, not to mention their mama's are good friends. They had a good time, I think. We had a few "tiffs" but nothing that wasn't resolved quickly and forgotten. I really love both of these little girls and I love that they are my daughters friends. It was so neat to see them giggle together.
They stayed up late(well, late for me) and were up early. But, I didn't care, that's the point of a sleepover, right? Well, I am sure we will do it again...just not this week. Ha ha.
After they left on Wed. we all slept for 2 hours. I was worn out, and they didn't even require a lot of my attention.

Can't have a sleepover without some balloons.
Brecken even joined in on the fun.
Getting "dolled up"
I couldn't decide if they looked like they were going to a club or had been beaten...
We watched Barbie Mermaid Tale, 4 times

John came home and was bombarded
