* and they visited tennessee …

Posted on March 5th, 2009 by melinda in my not so normal family

~~~~ update~~~~ the second car load of clampett’s our family has safely arrived in Tennessee, actually we arrived a while ago but have been busy playing with the soon to be birthday girl. The first car load got here around 6:00, in time for dinner. Daddy, Chrisi and I are staying at a hotel near the big house, Anna, my daddy’s Peggy, Carolyn, Tammy & Preston will be joining us here tomorrow. Uncle Robin & Jamie will be bunking in the bunk house of the barn at the big house. Grandmommie & mama’s Peggy are staying at the big house with Thad, Brad, Emma Joy & Brad’s mom Chris. Not sure if my handsome husband will be joining us this weekend or not, my guess would be … um no, no he won’t, but you never know about that boy. My daddy informed me earlier that we would be getting up to attend the “not continental style breakfast” but “full buffet breakfast bar” that this fine establishment offers for free! I will say it’s actually a very nice place but doesn’t hold a candle to the Taylorsville Motel. Ok, that was a joke, it really nice unlike the Tvegas crack motel. Now, back to breakfast … I will be getting up to attend breakfast with my dad for several reasons A) he said so and B) that’s the only reason I need. So I am off to bed. Y’all have a wonderful Friday and happy weekend. Pictures of the birthday girl to begin sometime in the morning so stay tuned but for now here are some of our trip from NC to TN …
