June 9th, my wonderful hubby, my sweet lil' munchkin, and i headed home for a much anticipated time w/ our families. Dave stayed down for 1 week, and Bump and i stayed down for 2.
We enjoyed every minute!
We spent time w/ my family, w/ his family, and spent a lovely extended weekend in Tennessee camping w/ my mom's extended family (pictures to come in 'part 2')
Bump got in some very much needed time w/ her grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, and cousins of varying degrees
The dirt road that leads to the house i grew up in...i'm not sure there is anything more welcoming or beautiful to me!
How i miss the beautiful hardwoods of Virginia, the mountains surrounding the valley i lived in, the rivers running here and there, and the full lush green grass!
i wasn't the only one who enjoyed the soft lush grass!
A lazy sunday afternoon...
we attempted a family photo...
not the best...and autumn is missing...we'll try again next time ;)

time w/ Dave's wonderful family...
One afternoon they took us up to the cabin where we had a lovely little hotdog lunch, and then we drove back to the fresh water spring just a mile away
Brighton was pretty eager to get her hands on some of that fresh mountain water ;)
(it only looks yellow because Dave mixed it w/ his tea!)
while Grandpa and Grandma Sonifrank kept Brighton at the cabin, Dave and i were able to 'escape' for a bit on a little 4-wheeler drive through the woods to do some exploring...we found a few treasures :)
happy wednesday everyone!!!!
