Busy but fun weekend!

It's that time of year again....the last weekend in of our family's favorite times...a drive up to South Pittsburg for the National Cornbread Festival!

This year, we were able to coordinate meeting Aunt Jan and Uncle Eddie in South Pittsburg for the festival! It was great to see them and meet some of Uncle Eddie's family. We had lots of great food, fun shopping the local vendors, fun "spinning the wheel" to see if we won anything (which we did!), and had fun watching some of the Cook-Off! The weather again this year was more than was wonderful! We are already looking forward to next year's!

Then we had a little birthday gift exchange...they gave the girls' little gifts (thank you, again, for it was too sweet of y'all to also give Macy and Tressie little gifts too!) and Annie [April 1st] her birthday gift. And we gave Aunt Jan [April 15th] her birthday gift.
Then Eric, the girls, and I did some of our shopping for a few annuals and perennials at the Lowe's there in Jasper. And then we headed home to plant and play outside and get ready for the rest of our weekend!
The next day we had Celeste Stoddard and her suite-mate Jenny Johns over for lunch after was great to see them, but we are so sad to be seeing Celeste graduate from seems like it was just a month or so ago that her older brother Jonathan came! We love them so much!
Then that afternoon, our supper club had a surprise birthday party for Cici over at Rob and Laura's house...I thought Cici would know about the party, for sure; but she was definitely surprised!
