Easter Weekend

....and what a great weekend it has been!

We planned to leave around lunch time on Friday to head for my family's in Tennessee.  T took the big kids to breakfast so I could work on getting us packed and, of course, the van decided to be difficult and had some kind of hose explode.  A little behind schedule, but we got there.
For Christmas, my grandparents had planned a tip for all of us to tour the Natchez Trace Parkway and eat lunch at the Davy Crockett State Park.  Bus trips are a fun tradition for us.  We have gone to Washington D.C,  a 2 week trip "out west",  and Myrtle Beach.  The trip was planned for right after Christmas, but it was canceled because of icy weather so they re-scheduled for this weekend.


Grandpa Hudley, the best tour guide ever.

What can I add to that?.........


Coach and Lyla James ready for take off


Grandpa Hudley and B having a deep discussion while enroute...

Quite the crew and this is about half of the original cousins.....

The babies snoozed in the stroller during a short hike....


One of our stops included an old tobacco barn....  Brian with Uncle Rick's IPod in hand





The Easter bunny made a visit to CC and Coach's this morning


So cool.....


The baby girls apparently knew how cute their glasses looked because they left them on for about a hour.






After church we went to the farm for Grandpa Hudley's breakfast and the Crockett egg hunt.


These kiddos were fast asleep before we left the driveway of the farm.....

You have some incredibly well dressed kids! I LOVE smocked clothing! Just got the cutest little Rosalina day gown for the baby to wear home from the hospital - the smocking has a stork carrying a pink bundle!
