Maple turned 2 years old in April and although she may be a pup she knows when its her party! Maple girl loves to get attention and boy did she get some on her special day. We had the grandparents over for dinner and cake, afterwards Maple got to open her gifts! Her favorite toy ,still is to this day, is her slinky.... it squeaks and she loves it (actually she just pulled out the squeaker the other day... thank you Jesus!) Maple also got a cute shirt from Gigi made just for her! We love our little Maple girl and all the fun she brings to us every day! ;)

Back in April my sister in law asked if we wanted to go strawberry picking with a group of her friends, thankfully we were able to join in on the fun! We headed to Cooper Creek Farm here in Gallatin and found some yummy berries, Reese and Aleah loved finding the perfect ones to put in our basket! :) After leaving the farm we had a picnic lunch at Triple Creek park, it was nice to be able to eat and let the kids play!
We had such a FUN day and look forward to the next strawberry season! :)

The Saturday before Easter we enjoyed our annual lunch at Kyle's parents house. Connie grilled some steaks and we all pitched in with the side dishes and dessert! After our meal Cole went on his egg hunt, the adults went on a scavenger hunt, and we played some corn hole.... a great afternoon indeed! :)
On Sunday we headed to church to worship the RISEN one! Thank the Lord, Jesus came to forgive us of all our sins and because of Him we can have an intimate relationship with our Father!
After church we went to my Uncle and Aunts house way out in Pigrim. love it out there, but the drive seems to take forever! :) We had a TON of food, egg hunt for all the kiddies, and enjoyed a fun Sunday. On our way home our car broke down, thankfully my parents were right behind us! We had to get it towed to Hendersonville and later found out that it was going to cost a what seemed like a fortune! After much prayer we had someone bless us with a generous gift that helped so much! :)

Over Spring break my family traveled to the Biltmore for a fun overnight trip! None of us had been before except for Kyle and we were in shock! The estate is gorgeous, I can not imagine having such a HUGE house! I loved hearing all the stories about how the Biltmore was maintained on a day to day basis. On our first day we toured the home and had lunch in the courtyard. After viewing the home we were exhausted so we saved the gardens for our second day. After much needed rest we went downtown to try out a farm to table restaurant called Early Girl then we walked to another place for dessert called French Broad Chocolate Lounge, it was all delicious!!!
We had such a fun time and would love to go back next Spring to see everything in full bloom!
