Fall in Tennessee...

We took the babies on their first trip! We survived our first flights, no one threw peanuts at us, and we received more sympathetic looks than we did eye daggers, so I'll consider it a win. I did crack up at the couple of people in the security line who asked where we were traveling. I'm not sure they meant to audibly sigh of relief when they found out our destinations differed. :)

Bobby Bones was on our flight from Austin to Nashville. I debated on asking him to be the Babies' first celebrity pic but ultimately decided against it. Then there was this exchange and I was so mad at myself!!

The purpose of our trip was to visit Dave's granddad and take the babies to meet him. That was such sweet time spent with him! We went to the pumpkin patch, took drives around Franklin and Leaper's Fork for nap time, ate our weight in biscuits at the Loveless Cafe, and enjoyed wonderful time spent with Dave's family. 

The pumpkin patch wasn't a huge success for those DARLING pumpkin patch pictures I was hoping for. We had some tears, definite disinterest in smiling for the camera, and a blowout of epic proportions which required almost an entire package of wipes and a full outfit change. You can imagine my surprise when a few photos were actually salvageable! Ha!

P&C with their YaYa (Dave's mom)

P&C loved getting to spend time with Aunt Kate!

Our hotel room was pretty spooky at times!! :)

These Texas babies bundled up! It actually wasn't too cold while we were there but definitely a few degrees cooler than Austin.

Baby-size leopard skinnies. Is this real life?? LOVE.

Dave, with his granddad and Parker

4 generations! Claudia, her dad, Dave, and the babies. Love this so much! (Also, Caroline is named after her great grandmother- his wife)

I'm so thankful for my family. My little family of 4 and a wonderful extended family God has richly blessed me with. It also helps that they all live in places that are really fun to visit. That's an added bonus! XOXO
