Anna's word for sunglasses is "cool!". And that she is.
After pool time came lunch and NAPS. Which allowed the rest of us to watch some AUBURN football! WAR EAGLE!! Pretty sure we had a heart attack during that game.
Things I love about gathering family for a fun weekend is being relaxed, watching the kids together, laughing, and just catching up. I love the kids table. They all seem so grown up as they sit in their little chairs, eating with their little forks and just carrying on like little people.

|The dogs were troopers, as usual.|
We then gave the kids ice cream cones and set them up for a little photo op. I hope they will look back at these and say, "Hey! Look how little we were? And Graham was so young, he wasn't even in the picture yet!"
Ryan, who is 5, has truly become the little ring leader. He is so sweet with the kids. Always checking on each of them, reading stories and just being the best "Big Bro".
One of my favorite things from the weekend was Ryan letting me know that he woke up Anna in the mornings. (Ryan was in the top bunk and Anna on the bottom). He said he tapped her on the shoulder until she woke up and said, "Good Morning!" and then crawled in bed with her to talk about the day. Seriously, how sweet is that?

Everything really was all about Poppa this weekend. And I think he was glad to oblige.
Not to forget sweet little Graham. He was such a trooper on his first away game appareance.
John and I got to catch a date night on Sunday night, but realizing everything was closed, we headed home afterwards. Somewhat lame-o but still good to get out just the two of us.
Monday we stopped at the Tennessee Aquarium! We debated whether or not to stop so we turned back to Anna and said, "Do you want to see the fish?". She said, "YEA YEA!". Well, that made our decision easy. I didn't bring the camera but wish I had...her excitement was palpable.
Thank you Mom and Dad for an amazing weekend!!
