It's Fair Time In Tennessee

Our county fair started this week so we hit it up Monday night. This is the first year Carson could ride some of the smaller kid rides. He kept saying on the way there "Me not want to ride", but his attitude changed when we got there. He had a blast. Andrew as always was pumped about riding.

Here are a few pics...some are a little bit blurry. I forgot to take my nice camera but luckily I had my little camera in my purse. I knew it would come in handy sometime. :)

1st ride of the night...they don't look to thrilled.
So we moved onto the Scrambler

Carson is not to sure about this

Bless Carsons heart...when he got off the ride he was sooo dizzy.
So we moved on to an all time favorite....The Choo Choo Train

Then it was time to win a "Spiderman"....like we need another one to go with the 1,256 other spidermen we have.

Ring Pops are awesome!
The one and only ride for me that night.

Then it was back to the Scrambler....I think they like it..lol

Can't wait to go back later in the week.

Wedding Weekend Part II

Here are the pictures from the wedding and reception. These are just some snapshots that a friend made during the wedding and some I made during the reception. They are nothing spectacular.
Here is the White Archway...it was GORGEOUS. Martha had shown me a picture in a magazine of what she wanted and I was a little worried, but I think it turned out better than the magazine.

Here we are all cleaned up and in our line. I loved how my hair turned out. I was so afraid it would not hold but have no fear....Rhonda did a great job.
L to R...Me, Sloane, Allison, Heather, Melissa, Rachel & Sabrina

The Wedding Cake...speechless

Andrew bustin' a move at the reception.
This reminds me of John Travolta. I can't wait to see the photographers pics. She sat down right in the middle of the dancing to catch the action.

My boys went WILD.... Carson doing his "shake my body" dance. It was PRICELESS!!
And lastly Andrew having his first dance with his girlfriend Audrey...see the photographer in the bottom left corner. Can't wait to see these.

That pretty much sums it up....a wonderful wedding weekend!!!

As I type this the newlyweds are in St. Lucia, soaking up some rays, having a blast. I need a vaca after this. :)


The Wonderful Wedding Weekend Part I

It seems like it was yesterday that Bobby & Martha got engaged but it has actually been a year. All the planning and preparation came full circle this past Saturday.
Some of the decorating started earlier in the week with Bobby and his brothers getting the tent up and ready in our yard for the reception....Let's just say if we had a video camera last Wednesday night when a thunderstorm popped up we could be alot richer. They say it was a site watching me, Chris, my Father In Law & our new neighbor (which Chris & I had yet to meet) chasing the tent as it was blowing through our yard, headed straight to our neighbors house when it decided to make a turn and head to the main highway, throwing me down on the ground. No one was hurt and the tent was saved so the preparation must go on.

Here are some pics from the Rehearsal & Rehearsal Dinner on Friday night.
The Bride & her father waiting to make the first practice walk down the isle.
Carson with his pillow & Andrew in the middle. They did so GREAT Friday night!
Graden (AKA Martha's Big Brother & The Preacher)
Leslie (FiDesigns) & Baby Lee...he was honorary ring bearer.
Sabrina giving Rachel a back scratch waiting on Martha.

The Rehearsal Dinner was held at a family's house out in the country.
It was so relaxing and beautiful.
This is outside around their pool. They have an outdoor kitchen with a
huge fireplace. Looks like something out of Southern Living magazine.

The Centerpieces for the tables...so simple but very cute.

They had a great spread laid out for us...BBQ, Green beans, Potato Salad, homemade sour dough bread, hash brown casserole & so many desserts I can't even remember. It was great and the weather turned out to be great also.

Next post will be on the big day....hoping to have it up this afternoon or tomorrow.

Please take note on how the white arch looked during the rehearsal. You will be blown away with how it looks for the wedding. Just a little something to keep you hanging.

Carsons 1st Boat/Fishing Trip

Since we have been having some amazing weather lately we decide to go out on the lake Tuesday afternoon. This was Carsons 1st time on the lake and fishing. He was alittle unsure when we first took off in the boat, however it didn't take long for him to decide he LOVED it. His favorite thing to say was "Go Fast".

Andrew loves the lake also...his favorite thing was "Lets go speed fast". I on the other hand was a nervous wreck while we were fishing. The boys had on their life jackets and I know they would be fine if they were to fall in but I would totally lose it. The thought of seeing my babies falling in and not being able to reach them just upsets me. Andrew knows to stay away from the edge...Carson on the other hand has a mind of his own.

Here are a few pictures from the trip....
Carson is ready to go!

This is Carson when we made our first stop...on his hands and knees. Didn't take long for him to get over his fear.

Carsons 1st fish ever. I don't know who was more happy...Chris or Carson.

Amazing sunset

Me with my big boy.

Chris & I

I just love how he was trying to help take Carsons life jacket off.

I can't wait to spend more days like this!!!
