Children's Musical

Here are some pictures from the children's musical at church. It was called Kings, Dreams, and Schemes. It was the story of King Daniel. Thank you to Mrs. Cheri for putting this all together. It was awesome!!

the Weekend

This past weekend was lots of fun!! We had friends stay with us for the weekend while their mom and dad were out of town. All the girls had a great time together Friday and Saturday.

On Friday afternoon Aubrey had practice at church for the children's choir musical that was last night. Then after practice, we went to the Dogwood Arts parade in downtown Knoxville.

Taylor's last 13th birthday party

Taylor had her last 13th birthday party at Granny and Pop's house. It was celebrated with her cousin Gabriella who turned 1 at the end of March.


Pictures from Easter morning of my sweet girls!

Neighborhood Annual Easter Egg Hunt

Each year the neighborhood that we live in has an Easter Egg Hunt the Saturday morning before Easter for all the children. Aubrey had a great time at the egg hunt this year.

Another birthday party

Taylor had another birthday party where she invited friends to go roller skating. It was Easter weekend so several friends were out of town.

Beautiful Terrible Cross

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Taylor's 13th birthday

On the day of Taylor's 13th birthday she wanted to go to Wasabi for lunch and to church the night of her birthday (her bday was on Wednesday). So, went to lunch at Wasabi where we had a great time. They sung Happy Birthday to her at Wasabi and she loved that!! Nana and Papaw were able to come have lunch with us also and we had a great time!!

After Wasabi we went to the Puppy Zone and loved on the puppies. After Puppy Zone, Taylor went birthday shopping with Nana!!

Happy Birthday Taylor!!

Our Car!!

Of course we needed to drive a convertible while in San Diego, CA. Here is the car we had while on a trip. We really look good in a convertible!! I did not miss my van at all :) We want us a convertible for Knoxville, TN!!

In and Out Burger

I told you before we like to eat!! The girls and I were introduced to In and Out Burger. It is the most delicious cheeseburger and french fries I have EVER had!!
The milkshakes were awesome Jody and the girls said!! YUM, YUM, YUM!!
I want me an In and Out Burger right now!!
Here are pictures from our experience at In and Out!!


While visiting San Diego, we drove to Disneyland and spent the day. We volunteered at Keep Blount Beautiful to get our tickets. The volunteer experience was great. The people at Keep Blount Beautiful were so helpful in getting us signed up, getting a time and our supplies for us to volunteer, and made it a great experience.

We love everything Disney and Disneyland was no exception. We did not expect to like Disneyland as much as do Disneyworld (don't ask me why?!) but we loved Disneyland. We can't wait to go back and visit again!!

Our visit to San Diego

I have not had a chance to post pictures in awhile.
A couple of weeks ago the girls and I went to San Diego, CA while Jody was working an extended time there. We spent 10 days in San Diego, CA and we had so much fun. We went on tours, went to Disneyland, went to the beach, went shopping, and did lots of other things. In the next few posts, I will share some pictures of our time in San Diego, CA.

We spent many hours at the beach.

Visiting the Hotel Coronado and Glider Port

One day we drove across a huge bridge from downtown San Diego and went over to see the Hotel Coronado. A few of the pictures are on the bridge as were driving over!! It was very windy this day and it was very windy on top of the bridge in the car. Aubrey would closed her eyes and put her head down going over, she did better going back to San Diego!!

We also visited the Glider port in San Diego this day. There were people out gliding over the ocean. Really neat to watch. We were not brave enough to try gliding this time, but I think one or more of us will in the future (hint: I will not be Jody)!!

Eating Japanese

We love to eat Japanese food and no matter where we are, we try to find a good Japanese. Jody had found out about Benihana several years ago and he took me there when I had visited San Diego with him before. We were excited to take the girls. They thought it was delicious (but still love Wasabi the best!!)

Tour of San Diego

One day while in San Diego, the girls and I went on a tour of the city of San Diego. This was a fun tour because you toured on the streets of San Diego from this bus and then it went into the water and you toured the bay of San Diego. It was really neat and we learned a lot of cool things about San Diego.

San Diego Zoo

While in San Diego, we visited the zoo. It is awesome and huge. We had a great time.
