Staying at home again...

There's nothing like vacations to make you happy to be at home!  Since we arrived home from Tennessee on Wednesday evening, Thursday felt like a Monday and this 3 day weekend feels very bizarre.  But it is SO good to be home.   I'm sad that we won't make it any 4th of July gospel meetings this year, but "gazelle intensity" (a Dave Ramsey phrase that means to pay off debt ASAP and don't spend on superfluous things) is a very worthy endeavor.

A few highlights of our adventures:

1. The chance to sing with/for Keith Lancaster, a room full of excellent singers AND get to record a CD was so much fun!

2. Randomly getting to spend some time with Gina Costa was some icing on that fabulous cake!  Thanks for requiring us to get out and have some fun Tuesday night!

3. I found us a hotel in TN for $65 (that's including taxes and fees) a night and it wasn't lame at all! Everything was super clean, appeared to have been updated recently, a good size breakfast and overall a relaxing atmosphere! Score for cheap!

4. Even though I was nervous about traveling with a 7 month old who has never really seen a car for more than 2 hours at a time before, Jude did amazingly well!  The Lord blessed him with a very easy going spirit for most of the trip.

And lastly, here a few pictures Randy took Thursday afternoon.
