Easter Down South

KNOXVILLE, TN- I headed down south to Tennessee for Easter this year to spend the weekend with Brittany and her family. The weather was mostly hot and humid, and I witnessed a nasty, windy thunderstorm my last night in town. Thankfully I made it out before the big storms hit this week. 

While I was there we made a stop at the zoo...



Hit up an Easter egg hunt... 

Played outside...
 

...and in James' favorite place: the dirt.
 

And we took a little day trip to the Smoky Mountains. It was lovely. 

By the end of the weekend, James was pooped.


And these flowers in Britt's front yard... no longer exist. Last night those big tornado-ish storms ripped them out altogether. I'm glad Britt and her family are all safe, even though their neighborhood didn't fare as well.  

I have been glued to the news all day. My prayers go out to all the victims of these deadly twisters.

That little boy looks like he belongs to you. Promise me when I have kids, even if they're not as cute as Jamers, you'll still love them as much! :)

Oh, James is getting so tall! The only other thing I can say is video, video...I want a video of my little guy, please.

Looks like fun!
I wouldn't even have known about the twisters if it weren't for you and Joy...hope the damage wasn't too crazy.
