We are currently living in Knoxville Tennessee. I am a stay at home mom and absolutley love hanging out with Makai (age 5) and Beck (age 3). Ike is in his 2nd year of Oral Surgery Residency at the Univerity of Tennessee Hospital. We miss all of our friends and family, but enjoy the opportunity to meet new friends and see new places. This blog is just a little piece of our every day life here in Knoxville.

Secret City Festival

What better way to spend a 100 degree day more humid than you can imagine than outside with animals, big bouncy slides, crafts and inflatable obstacle courses? The kids and I went with Jamie and Livy and even though it was hotter than Hades we had a great time!

Knoxville Fun!

We've been having a really fun summer. Here's a few pictures of what we've been up to: the zoo, Library time (fire truck), hanging out in the backyard using water trying to stay cool, selling our car and getting a new van! We are getting ready for the baby and needed a bigger car so we were lucky enough to get Pop Pop's van.

Saying Goodbye

We had a super fun trip up to Lexington to say goodbye to the Price's. Some of our best friends we spent four years with in Kentucky. They are headed off to Arizona to begin life after school. We will miss you guys and wish you all the luck in the world!

Ike Post call....

The poor guy has to sleep sometime! He's entering trauma season so he never sleeps at the hospital. We all like to take rests with Ike. Even though it looks like he has me in a headlock, we fell asleep on the couch together and Makai got into the camera. I'm pregnant and tired and Ike is overworked and tired. Bad combo!

Knoxville Zoo

I just love the warmer weather and being outside. Good thing the kids love it too. We headed out to the Zoo for a great day. We played in the kids museum, had a picnic and checked out the animals too. We had a pretty yummy watermelon slushy that we all loved. A zoo that's 15 minutes away is with a zoo pass is heaven!

Summer has Officially Started!

Pool time in Tennessee! All summer long all we do is swim (even if I'm 8 months pregnant). We swim at the Beach which is the gym that I work at. We love it because it's huge, fun and best of all it's free! We also love the swimming at the Allred's pool. The kid's just can't get enough!

Ballet Recital

The moment Makai waits for the whole year. Time to perform, makeup, flowers, ice cream and an audience. She did a great job and looked so cute. She loves ballet and tap. This is her third year in ballet and tap and she just can't get enough. She's getting pretty good and it's so much fun to watch.

Soccer Season's Over!

Makai had her soccer party and last game. She was way excited about her trophy. She didn't like soccer at first, but she really liked it at the end. She's a speed demon and loves to run. She did a great job. We'll be seeing her playing soccer in the fall again!
