Visit to the baby sister

Yesterday we spontaneously decided to drive over the mountains & through the hills.....or is it through the mountains & over the hills?? Hmmmm at any rate we ended up in Knoxville, which is where my baby sister & her boyfriend live! We met in Market Square for lunch at Cafe 4 {where she works} & then spent the next few hours meandering through the Farmers Market which is also located in Market Square. You can't help but enjoy yourself! There are people singing on the sidewalks, artists showcasing their creations, along with farmers & bakers sharing their fresh produce & baked goods! OH & it might help that there is a water fountain for the kids to play in.....short break for some icecream eating......then back in the water to rinse off before calling it the BEST afternoon!
Karlie's boyfriend "Umple Matt" {no typo.....that's what my youngest niece calls him & so it's stuck!} He's ADORED by all 4 kids & so we can't help but love him too!!
I find a trend when downloading my pictures from camera to computer....I have a poser which makes me laugh & then I have a silly one which makes me laugh!

This one is completely content to always be at her parents side.....we'll eat it up while we can!
Farmer's Market in Market Square
Water Play
It was "International Biscuit Festival" week
Bird Houses
Shea Butter
Apple Butter
When we found our way back to the kids & guys this is where they were! LOVE that these young artists can come out & express themselves & LOVE that my girls {& husband} can just sit & enjoy them!

Then after a fun afternoon outside we headed to dinner
SO much fun to be had with the sticks!
........AND again a poser & a silly one!
Who doesn't heart a horse butt in the center of your photo???
LOVE these girls.....MUCH fun the day was!
Home we went......back through the mountain & over the hills.....or whatever! The sun was setting mid trip & it was a GORGEOUS ride home!
BLESSED with family & the ability to enjoy life with eyes, ears, nose, mouth, feet, hands, legs.......ALL of it & MORE!!!
