Week #35 {2015} Papa Nutt & Gigi In Town

Sunday at the store Rylan found a TMNT blanket, made the most adorable "please daddy" face and got to take it home with him.  =)
Monday a sweet friend made us some super yummy housewarming cookies.
Rylan loves riding his glider to the bus stop to pick up the kids.
Dylan's school had open house night.  The kids got to cozy up in this reading nook in Dylan's homeroom class.
Tuesday Baby Girl lost ANOTHER front tooth.
And then while the kids were at school Rylan and I went to pick up Papa Nutt & Gigi at the airport!
We got home just in time to get Payton from the bus.
Wednesday morning Payton was excited to see the tooth fairy visited her.
Hugs with Gigi.
We {Ry and I} took them to Cracker Barrel.
And then to Winstead Hill.
Followed by lunch at Meridee's Breadbasket.
His smile is changing.  I love it!
Reading bedtime stories.
Thursday after the kids were off to school, we had a whirlwind sightseeing trip.  We drove through Leipers Fork, went to the Natchez Trace bridge, drove to Loveless Cafe to have biscuits.
Then drove around The Parthenon, drove through Downtown Nashville, through the Gulch and Music Row.  We stopped for lunch at Hattie B's and got to see Toby Keith there!
Then it was off to Bass Pro Shop where we saw this awesome sign.
Next stop The Grand Ole Opry.
And a quick walk into The Gaylord Opryland Hotel.
When we got home, a crew was here regrading our yard.
Ry's favorite part of the day...riding to the bus stop.
Friday while driving the back roads my dad wanted to stop and see some horses
Ry loved them.
Back roads driving is awesome.
That evening we got to see a hot air balloon fly by the house.
Saturday morning Gigi made Swedish Pancakes per the kids request.
Then we piled in the car and headed off to Amish Town.
We stopped at a small gas station on the way and this sign was posted at the door. {I've never felt safer!}
Chris snapped this BEAUTIFUL picture while we were buying some fresh corn, homemade candies and apple butter.
They got to pet a donkey,
and we said "hi" to some cows.
Back home, Chris and the kids were doing some back porch talking.
These are the moments I hope we will remember forever.
And yes, they played in that dirt.

Week #34 {2015} Moving Week

Sunday I found Ry like this in the afternoon.  So sad that he's not feeling well.
Monday morning was cool enough that Payton had to wear a jacket.  We are getting taste of the fall mornings that are coming soon!
I found a great place to get a blow-out. I WISH you could have heard his giggles.
It was also a LARGE cup of iced coffee day.
I needed the coffee, because we were moving all this stuff,
into this.
Fortunately the movers we hired were excellent.
The kids slept like this that night.
Because Tuesday we signed the docs for this!
And then we moved ALL DAY LONG.
Wednesday while walking to our new bus stop it was sprinkling on us and I looked up and there wasn't a rain cloud in the sky.
Ry got pooped out with all the moving. {I was too!}
It down poured at one point and I picked up a soaking wet girl at the bus stop.
Dylan made himself cozy in Chris' new office area (with all moving junk around him) and did his homework.
That night while we were watching tv, Ry reached back and grabbed daddy's hand.  So sweet.
Thursday - I was still unpacking and Ry was playing.
That evening I got to soak in my new tub. It was hot and ama-zing.
Friday we ran to Target to get a couple of things and Ry found this soap.
Since it was Michangelo we of course had to buy it and he carried it with him to all our other stops.
Saturday morning the kids woke up early and jumped on their bikes to ride in the cul-de-sac.  We are so grateful for this cup-de-sac since we moved from a super busy cut-thru street!
Dylan made a super yummy snack.  Chipotle Bean Burgers cut up and wrapped in tortillas and baked.  It was super good.
