Last Sunday, we took off for a quick family vacation to visit my family in Alabama! My sweet Gran and Papaw have been to see us three times since we've been in Texas and several times when we were in Arkansas. We were long overdue for a visit in their neck of the woods!
The trip was estimated at around 10 hours, but with stops we were thinking more like 12. Boy, were we wrong!! The rain storm of the year was underway and we were stuck smack-dab in the middle of it!

Tuesday night, we had a big cook-out with a bunch of my family. It was so good to see everyone and for them to meet Joy!

good. good. times.
On Wednesday night, Graham preached at my Gran's church.
Joy loved the music and listening to Papaw sing!
Thursday, we headed towards Memphis and our old stomping grounds. We stopped by our first apartment for a quick peek. We wanted to show it to the girls, but they weren't amused! What? You mean y'all had life before us!
We spent our first three years of marriage in this apartment building--seminary housing!
We spent the night in Southaven, MS and went to dinner with some of our dearest friends. It was so good to catch up with two of our favorite people!
Friday, we made the long trip back to Texas. We stopped in Little Rock for lunch and got to meet up with Na, Pops, and Mamaw!

The girls were excellent travelers! I was really impressed!
Ten minutes from home and AG decides to doze off!
I could tell that Joy was tickled to be back in her own bed. Just check out her bed-head...
