Melinda's Aunt Dinah's

This weekend Melinda invited us to spend the weekend at her Aunt Dinah's with her family, the McLaren's, and Daniel.
The Siscoe's and the McLaren's / Horton's went out Friday after work, but we had a soccer game Saturday morning, so we had to meet them up there Saturday afternoon.
Melinda gave us perfect directions, so we were able to really enjoy our drive through the mountains to Aunt Dinah's house.
When we pulled up our jaws dropped.  It was so beautiful inside and out!!!!!!!  It looked like the homes that I see featured in Southern Living.

We got the kids out of the car, got unpacked and were ready for the fun!
First we ate some lunch.  Michael and Melinda made some awesome chili that we really enjoyed!!!  Then we ran around a bit throwing the football and a few bad apples and blowing dandelions

Mary took this neat picture when Drew was ready to throw the apple

After unpacking and having a bit of play time, it was time to get on the 4 wheelers and go enjoy the nearby farms.
Drew can't wait to get on a four wheeler.

So we were ready to go see everything and everyone was ready to show us.
Obviously Daniel had been having fun on the 4 wheelers.  I can't put into words how awesome it was to see him coming up that hill on that 4 wheeler!  Daniel, you rock!

Uncle Mike took Drew for a ride.  Drew's face in this picture pretty much sums how he felt about the "rollies"

"Alright, I'd like to go on a ride of my own after I finish this apple"

Michael showed us a thing or two before we went out

Alright, now it's time to venture off the property to visit some of the neighbors.
