Weekend Recap

Saturday was Tatum's 3 month birthday and we had so much fun. We spent the morning with Antonio and then in the afternoon Tatum, Laurie, Mckayla, Mya, and I all headed to Nashville to meet up with my mom, dad, grandmother, and brother. We got to Nashville at about 8pm and got into our room. When my parents got back from eating we decided to take Tatum and Mckayla swimming in their indoor swimming pool. It was pretty late, around 9:30pm, so Tatum wasn't too far from bedtime. She liked the pool, but she wasn't over enthusiastic about it. She was a cutie in her swimming suit though. Here are some pics from that night.

After Tatum went swimming for a bit, we got her out and my mom got her dried off and changed so that she would not freeze on the walk back over to the room. Here is a pic of her after she got changed. I think swimming really wore her out!

Here are some other pictures from the room that night.

Mckayla's new favorite game to play is hide and go seek. Here is a picture of Matt hiding. Do you think this was a great hiding spot??

On Sunday, my mom, dad, grandmother, bro, sis, Mckayla, Mya, Tatum, and I all went out to eat for my sister's birthday. After lunch we all went to see Matt's new house in Nashville that he is fixing up. It looks awesome and he isn't even done. I know he has done LOTS of work and has a little more to do. Here are some pics of his house...

He has done SOO much. Here is pic of the living room. Notice the nice hardwood floors that he put down himself! Also, new windows, painting, etc.

Here is the front bathroom.

This is the kitchen. Love the tile he put down in there(and cabinets, appliances, window, etc)!

Here is the shower in the back bathroom. I LOVE this tile. He still has to grout it, but it looks awesome!

Of course, anytime Matt is around he is always having fun with the girls. As soon as we walked in his house, Mckayla went and found the broom and took it to Matt so he could help her ride it. Here is a pic...(Notice Laurie cheesin' it up in the background??)

After we left Matt's house, he took us to the lake right around the corner. I can't wait to go up this summer for a weekend so we can go swimming and play in the park!

See the seagulls?

Next are some pics of Tatum and Mya together. They didn't have much to say to each other. I am sure that will change when they get older!

Later, my mom, dad, and grandmother left to come home and the rest of us stayed. On Monday, we all went to Franklin to do a little shopping. I think I bought way too much, but I just couldn't pass up all the great deals we were finding! Later that night we went to our friend Tracy's house to eat and hang out for a bit. For desert, Tracy got cupcakes and we sang happy birthday to Laurie. Unfortunately, Tracy did not have candles, so Laurie blew out a match. Here is the pic...

Finally, Tuesday we were set to return home. We all got up, got ready, got packed and loaded the car. Matt brought over pizza for lunch and we ate and then headed home. Here are some of the pics from Tuesday.

Tatum was in such a great mood when she woke up, so I had to capture the moment!

After a few pictures, she decided to wrestle with the sheet...

She thought it was so funny...

This was the last picture of the weekend before we left for home.

We had an awesome time and I wish we could have stayed longer! It was great to get out of town for a little bit. Thanks to my mom for arranging a great and free trip for us!!

Also, I know this is late, but HAPPY BIRTHDAY LAURIE!! You are such an awesome sister and I couldn't ask for a better one! We have gotten so close over the years and I hope for many more years of making memories together! It is always good to be able to talk to you about anything! Thanks for all the advice on college, marriage, careers, pregnancy, babies, etc. over the years! You are such a great mother to your girls and I hope that I can be as great to Tatum as you are to Mckayla and Mya. You are such a great role model for me. Thanks for always being there for me! (Also, I still have your birthday present!! I totally forgot about it last night, SORRY!)

I am glad you enjoyed the long weekend trip to Nashville. It was like one big slumber party! Hopefully, we can have lots more of these trips. The pictures are great!
