Another Road Trip, Part 1: Jackson, TN

The end of July the boys and I loaded up the car once more and headed to Jackson, TN to spend some time with Ron and Paula. They had a full schedule planned for us.

On arrival there was motorcycle riding and pellet gun shooting and visiting with Paula’s dad, Grady. Monday night we went to a baseball game and watched the Jackson Generals play the Braves. I told the boys since the Barons weren’t playing we could cheer for the Generals. They lost the game, but we had a fun time. Ron and I tried to teach the boys the chicken dance, but they would have none of it.

After the game we headed to Sonic for ice-cream. Having been disproved once over the quantity of ice-cream my children can consume, Granddaddy indulged them when they said they could eat a large.

I went out to the trailer and had a nice uninterrupted night of sleep.

Tuesday we hung out at the house and Ron rode each of the boys on the motorcycle. It was the first time to take much of a ride on the real road for Gabriel and Sebastian. They all had a good time.IMG_2995IMG_3002 IMG_2996 IMG_2976 IMG_2980  That afternoon we went to Sky Zone where they jumped on various trampolines for an hour and a half. IMG_3013 IMG_3008





After jumping we went to Snappy Tomato for supper–the boys favorite place to eat in Jackson.

Wednesday I got to enjoy a long chat and lunch with my dear friend Mrs. Barbara. The boys ate with Granddaddy and Nana and then headed to the Family Fun Center for miniature golf and arcade games where I met up with them before we had to leave.

The memorable story is Ron finding Sebastian standing in the floor crying in the night. When he asked what was wrong Sebastian exclaimed that Jack had pushed him off the bed. Jack was sound asleep. Sebastian still maintains he was pushed.

Thanks, Granddaddy and Nana, for a great time!
