Summer is disappearing at an alarming rate! Things have been fun, but busy around here. I guess that is why time is going so fast. Here is a quick re-cap, as quickly as I can any way.
Big Bear and I finished the family room. The prints look much better in person than they do in this picture. We both really like the finished look of the family room. We need to find a few more pictures or wall art for the walls. I am not in a hurry. I want to find just the right thing.
My niece and nephews came for a visit. We had so much fun when they were here. We spent one day out at the farm. They all had fun. Mr. J really loved the freedom of driving the golf cart all over the farm. He CAN'T wait to start driving. Miss S. and Mr. T enjoyed riding the horses. Everyone enjoyed the tire swing.

All of our nieces and nephews.
The second week we all packed up and headed to Seiverville. My parents rented a beautiful cabin and two of my three brothers came down for the week.

We didn't do a lot of sightseeing while in Tennessee. We enjoyed hanging out at the cabin where we ate, played games, ate, and chatted the hours away. It was such a great time. I learned quite a bit while we were there. Top five:
1. My niece and nephews are growing up way too fast.
2. I SUCK at pool (billiards). My 14 year old nephew is really good at it.
3. Don't mix martinis with wine and then go for a walk. Hills increase in steepness 10-fold.
4. Big Bear and I can throw a pretty mean Mexican dinner! ;o)
5. Time spent with family is priceless!
Big Bear and I did take the kids to the Gatlinburg Aquarium one day. That was COOL!!
We stopped at an outlet mall after the aquarium. I don't think the kiddos liked this part much.
This is how we all felt on the way home from vacation.
It's been a GREAT summer so far!!
