time with family!

After nearly 3 weeks alone with Jamie, I was overjoyed to have a week spent with family. My parents came to visit last Sunday night and stayed with us three days. Then on Thursday, we all headed down to Atlanta together to spend a few days with my brother and his family. The week flew by, and now, somehow, there are only TWO days left until we go to France! HOW is that possible?! So thankful that we got to have some help in speeding those last days along. We had a great week. 

And now for the pictures...
Jamie LOVED having his grandparents here!
We took them to the Sunsphere...
and to the library downtown...
had dinner at Tupelo Honey Cafe...
and got gelato for dessert :)
LOTS of playtime
lunch at the Old Mill Bread Company
then it was time to head to Uncle Mark and Aunt Sarah's! Jamie passed some of the time by reading stories to Curious George.
Adriana was the patient, Elena was her mom, and Jamie was the doctor
Sweet baby Christine! She was all smiles the whole time. What a happy girl.
Jamie and Abigail watering the garden
It was IMPOSSIBLE to get a good picture of all 4 of the in the pool together.
Jamie was so cute with Christine. He wanted to hold her several times and sang her "Twinkle, Twinkle" more than once.
National Doughnut Day (who knew?!) meant free Krispy Kreme doughnuts.
big boxes make the best toys
going for a walk
walking their babies :)
Jamie's birthday is now less than a week away! He got to open a couple of presents from his cousins.

more playtime...

When we got back to Knoxville, Jamie got to open his present from my parents.
Lucky boy got new hot wheels, an ambulance, a cool crashing truck with which he is in love, new tools, stickers, and two stuffed dinosaurs!
And now I'm off to start packing!!!
