And Back to Tennessee

We had so much fun the last time, we headed down again to see family, and spend some time doing the touristy things. The baby didn’t get to meet all of the family the first trip down, so that was a priority this time! After family time, we went to the Hollywood Wax Museum in […]

It just started this last weekend and runs for the next 8 weekends. This past weekend had the theme of “Children’s Weekend”, but […]
