What we’ve been doing this week…

It’s Spring Break! My mom, brother & family, and sister & family all met in Chattanooga to spend a few days together. We stayed in a cabin up on Lookout Mountain and enjoyed some of the tourist attractions offered in that beautiful area.

But the best attraction for me were these darlings… the nieces and nephews (and of course, our children)…

They’re growing so much, and were such fun to be around. And new baby, Ella, was a pure delight. She smiled and cooed and happily went along with the whole gang.

I’m so thankful for our family – and for the friendship that we all share. It was a blessing and a gift to get spend time together with them. (Thanks, Mom!)

Have a great weekend, everyone!
