Walking in MEMPHIS!!

A couple weeks ago, Davis & I decided very last minute to go with my parents to Memphis to visit two of my younger brothers and their wives.  And when I say last minute, I mean I decided at 9:30 the night before we left. Talk about scrambling to pack. Anywho...we made it & didn't forget anything! The drive from Greensboro to Memphis is really pretty (we go through Virginia)... but VERY l-o-n-g! Thankfully, my mom rode with us and Davis did great.  He really only cried on the way back once we got ~30 minutes from home. Considering it's about an 10 hour drive (more with a baby!) each way, I'm very proud of  how he did.  We went Wednesday through Monday and it was SO SO great to get to see where Micah, Virginia, Isaac & Caroline live and to get to spend time with them!!  I wish we lived closer together because I really enjoy hanging out with them. Aaron couldn't come with us because he was going to the mountains with some guys...we were bummed the timing didn't worked out for him to come, too! 
Hellooooo Tennessee!
We got to see Katie (my sweet college roommate) when we got there!
So glad she had the day off!
And guess who else we saw in Memphis?! EMILY!
She randomly had a 2 hour layover there & texted me for Micah's phone number.  :)
This photo pretty much sums up breakfast.  Love.
We had breakfast downtown at Blue Plate Cafe.
Davis had missed you SO much Emily!!
Isaac & Caroline's home sweet home.  
They know how to make me want to come back to visit...  :)
Lots of laughs. And lots of GOOD food!
One, going on sixteen.  :)
Micah used his smoker to smoke brisket...
...and pulled pork. Oh so delicious!
YAY O'Hare/Riddle siblings!!
Josh & two of his favorite ladies!  
"Walking in Memphis..."  :)
Davis LOVES his Aunt Virginia & Aunt Caroline!
And he loved the attention!
The amazing playground at Shelby Farms!
Ike & Caroline!
This photo makes me so happy.   :)
Micah & Virginia!
We got to celebrate my mom's birthday while we were there!
B-E-A-U-tiful sisters!!
Birthday flowers & vase.
And the beautiful roses that Aaron & Stacy sent mom!  
Sad to leave.  
Can't wait to see y'all in Nashville in November, hopefully!  :)


  1. Hannah, so fun that y'all got to visit family! Y'all always seem to have the best time together! And I'm loving Davis' little Sperry's! I just bought Canon a pair of the velcro ones!

  2. Thanks Katie - it's so much fun when we're all together (which doesn't happen too often anymore)! YES, I love his Sperry's because they go with everything...we got them really cheap at a consignment store!
