Aunt KK's Birthday

The weekend of the 27th (September) we travelled out to Tennessee for our annual birthday visit to Aunt KK.  Last year E was only 5 months old so the trip was a little easier to handle.  This year we had to stop several times to let him get some energy out and we took plenty of movies and toys to keep him entertained.  The ride out was a little better bc we left in the evening, and after about 3 hours into the 7 hour trip he went to sleep for the night!  Overall it wasn't that bad, but may think about flying next time! HA!  We always have a lot of fun on our visits, eating some great food and lots of family time!  Kelly's roomie Susan just bought a new house and so we got to see the new place and help her out with some small stuff that needed to be done.  Ryan also got to participate in the annual Young Life clay shoot with bubba.  
Here are some pics of E playing on a playground we found on one of our stops...he loved it!

Kelly is always introducing us to fun places to eat or visit during our stay.  One of the new places we were introduced to was Muddy's!  It a small cupcake shop that is absolutely delicious!!!!  Mom, Kelly and I were out running some errands and stopped by to pick up a few for us to taste, and since we couldn't decide on a few we got 12!  All different flavors, mmmmm so good!  I think my favorite is the lemon and the cookies and cream!
Usually for Kelly's bday she picks a restaurant and we all go eat with Susan's Family.  This year since the girls had the new place Kelly thought that it would be a lot of fun to have a bunch of their friends over for a "Texas Style Fajita Buffet" was so yummy!  Mom, Kelly and I cooked all day long and finally pulled it off!  It was so much fun to meet all of their friends, and the weather had a turn on the cooler side, so the whole night was perfect! Happy Birthday Aunt KK!!!
