To Tennessee We Go (for a visit)

Sheesh! I am horrible at this. My goal was to post once a week. Obviously that has not been happening. I need to make a bigger effort. I guess I feel like I need to post really deep and meaningful things, but lots of people don’t. I mean, they are probably deep and meaningful to them, just not to everybody else. So, I am really going to make an effort to post at least weekly even if it isn’t full of deep meaning.

Yesterday the boys and I made the four-hour trek from Mississippi to Tennessee to visit Nani (my mom), and Happy (my mom’s husband), and Aunty (My sister K). Happy wanted to be called Papi, but somehow Munchkin turned it into Happy and it has just stuck. The boys did great. They entertained each other for almost the first hour before they both passed out for almost two hours. Then entertained each other for the last hour with minimal whining. I considered the trip  great success.

It would have been even better if I wasn’t so tired. Peanut insisted on staying latched on all night, so that meant I was stuck in one position all night. I snacked and turned the music up and bopped around in the seat and sang really loud. Move This by Technotronic came on. So awesome. I hadn’t heard it in forever. Luckily I was on Natchez Trace so there weren’t many other people around to stare.

Have you  ever traveled on  Natchez Trace? It is a beautiful expanse of road that extends 444 miles through Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee. There are lots of places to stop off and explore. I have only stopped at a couple so far, but K is coming back with us, so we will stop at a few more.  There are a few waterfalls, and the Tennessee river, and some other scenic areas that will be great for pics. I am excited.

We went to the park this morning before it really started raining. When we got here last evening, Munchkin was surprised with a new bike! He was so excited and said lots of thank you’s. We had to make sure he had a chance to ride it today. I pushed Peanut along on the trike with the handle, except the handle snapped off! Speaking of which, I need to see if they sell replacements.
