Memorial Day Weekend

We were busy little bees Memorial Day Weekend! First going up to Nashville on Friday night so that we could see Russ and Heather's newest addition to the family on Saturday morning.  Stella Jean is one sweet baby girl!

After that, we hit the road to Memphis to go visit my grandparents, whom we had not seen since Christmas!  Saturday we spent a fairly lazy day visiting and playing with Avery, topped off with some delicious Memphis BBQ.  Sunday was church and lunch, plus a special celebration Sunday night at Mimi and Papaw's church celebrating veterans.  We were treated to a special service, dinner, singing, and the most desserts I have ever seen at any church function in my entire life.  After it was over, Avery kept saying, "party back?"  We woke up early Monday morning, and after Mimi cooked breakfast we hopped in the car to head home.  We finished the night off swimming at Ed and Shawn's house with a dinner of ribs and bbq chicken!  Great weekend!  We are now back to the grind.  M and I find ourselves most nights with me studying and him working.  It never ends! :) 

She got attached to Mimi while we were there.  The attachment runs in the family...
Did not want to leave her Mimi.
