A trip to TN

We all took a trip to TN this President's day weekend. Jason's father and his newish wife Donna bought a 50 acre farm in Pikeville last summer and we hadn't been to see their new place yet. So we finally got to go and WOW we were impressed and admittedly, a bit jealous! Their acreage is mainly open farmland with a sizeable river running along one of the property lines. They also have a small manmade pond.

Jason's younger brother Ian and his wife came up to visit. Ian's wife, Amy, is 8 months pregnant with their first child so we were really lucky that she was able to make the trip! Ian brought his 4-wheeler with him and Ian and his wife watched the boys for us so Jason and I could go for a ride on the 4-wheelers and we had a great time. It was the first time in a long time that we'd been able to do anything by ourselves.

After visiting in Pikeville we stopped in Chattanooga for a whirlwind visit to Jason's mother, his oldest brother Scott and his grandfather Papaw. Here is Jason and the boys with Papaw, you can see clearly in this picture how THRILLED they were to get to take a picture with their great-grandfather!

All in all, it was a nice trip. We got to see everyone on our list and got a fair amount of visiting done. We look forward to our next visit when Ian and Amy's daughter will have been born!
