This past weekend, we traveled to Owensboro to spend time with my family. My parents recently sold their house and are in the process of moving closer to us here in Franklin. I am SO excited about this! Although the transition will be hard for everyone (especially them), I think they will be happy here. Owensboro has been their home for so long and where my brothers and I grew up. It is a great place to raise a family and I will always think of it as home. However, having everyone close and able to spend more time together will be a huge blessing.
Mom and Dad were also keeping Rane this weekend (Spencer and Katie were at the lake with her family). It was a lot of fun to watch Ethan and Rane together. They are only 4 months apart. They definitely checked each other out several times and even battled over a toy or two. I imagine these two will be pretty close as they grow up (at least, I hope so!).
We were able to go over and see Zach’s sister, Brooke, and her family this weekend as well. They recently moved into a new house and the boys loved seeing the girls’ new rooms! They also loved playing the Wii with their cousins. It was really nice to spend some time together.
We spent a lot of the weekend helping mom and dad pack. Carter has been asking and waiting for weeks to help them with this. He loves to help and is really excited about his Nana and Papa being closer. We got a lot of boxes packed up and brought an entire van full of boxes back with us to Franklin. I know there is a lot more to do, but hopefully we helped out a little.
The next few pictures are from our last trip to Owensboro. The boys and I spent a week there while Zach was out of town for work.
