Our Journey which turned into 3 Journeys

We were on our way to Jackson, TN to visit the Davenports last Thursday when we got a call that Aunt Laura was in labor! Good timing for us, so we changed directions and headed to Tupelo!

Then, we headed off to Jackson, TN. Sara Beth was so excited she woke up at 2:30 a.m. ready to go. At 4:30 a.m. I gave her books to read and told her that if she got out of bed again she would get a spanking. At some point, she fell back to sleep.
Speaking of sleep... we haven't had too much of that lately. Jen and I (not really thinking too clearly) decided we would give the girls one hour to fall asleep together. Well, they started off good...

a little later this is what we found...
and this is what they were doing...

Needless, to say it didn't work...and we won't be trying that again for a long time...

They had a great time...
picking up gumballs playing in the sprinkler

This is the best picture of the four of them

So, what did Jen and I do while the kids were napping and late at night? We sewed, and sewed, and sewed...and these are all the things we made from Thursday night to Saturday morning!

We got home Saturday afternoon around 4 because Zeb had a graduation party that night. Sunday morning we woke up and went to Tupelo. This was Zeb's only chance to see that sweet baby so off we went. Sara Beth could not get enough of him.

Leigh liked him a lot too--she just was a little too rough! Sorry Reed!

After a short (very short) hour and a half in Tupelo, we headed to New Albany for a quick visit with Grandmother. It was great to see her for a while.

Then we headed home...hopefully to stay for a while!
