Last weekend we visited some friends in TN. Mark and Jake met at Logan and have remained friends even after school and moving states. It was such a great weekend as a family!
We left mid-morning on Friday. It's a 4 hr drive but we were able to stop at Lambert's ;) about halfway for lunch! "Home of the throwed rolls," the kids had a BLAST!
We arrived Friday afternoon. It was in time for us to visit Jake's office. We relaxed for a little bit then headed to dinner. Friday night was low key. We went to a local pizza place and enjoyed dinner then all went back to hang out together. *I am pretty sure we played the longest game of UNO EVER! Ha!
Saturday morning we were up early thanks to all the littles. The boys cleaned and packed up the boat and we all headed out on the water. It was an amazing day on the water! Growing up we spent almost every weekend at the lake. Those are some of my best childhood memories. It was so fun to be doing it with my family! The kids HAD A BLAST! I knew they enjoyed the water but I wasn't sure how they would be since this was a clear and clean pool. LOL! They LOVED it!!
The tube was big enough for us to ride as a family! They kept yelling "faster, faster!" We laughed so hard together. It's a "snapshot" I will NEVER forget!!
Wyatt wanted to knee board SO BAD! We coached him and let him give it a try. He didn't get up but we were so happy he wanted to try something new and tough!!
Sunday morning we all got ready and attended church. It's so great to be spending a weekend with friends but still attending church as a family. (That's when you know you have great friends!) After church we drove about an hour to Discovery Park of America. It was such an AWESOME place! There was something for everyone. It was such a HUGE place!!
It was a much needed weekend getaway as a family to visit great friends! Weekends like that are gentle reminders to me God always knows what I need....
