The Bank Teller

One of the interactive exhibits at the Children's Museum was a bank.

Looks like she's buying dinner tonight!

Wes and Sebastian in front of the bank vault where you had to figure out the combinations to open the safe. Wes found this intriguing; however, Sebastian wasn't that impressed.

The Children's Museum of Memphis

Wes and I took Katherine and Sebastian to the Children's Museum of Memphis, Tennessee. Katherine and Sebastian enjoyed a variety of hands-on, interactive exihibits that were fun and educational. After the hours we had already spent in the van, it was nice to just play. The kids had a blast, and it was a great family experience.

Meijer Gardens

We visited Meijer Gardens, a Grand Rapids area attraction. The special attraction was display of forty Christmas trees with decorations that gave a sense of the traditions of the celebration of Christmas around the world. The trees were decorated with traditional items that are part of each culture's Christmas celebration.

While Wes and I enjoyed the display, Katherine and Sebastian were not all that interested; however, they found the large-scale model train running through some of the exhibits entertaining. There was also a kids exhibit where they could play with a train and that was a big hit.

Christmas vacation

Wes, Katherine, Sebastian, and I piled into our Ford minivan on Christmas Eve at 8PM to begin our drive to Grand Rapids, Michigan to visit with family. We arrived safely in Grand Rapids around 3PM Christmas Day. We spent a week having great fun and celebrating Christmas together as a family. We began our trip home New Year's Day with several stops along the way.

New Year's Day we drove to Cleveland and then onto Smithville, Ohio to see more family. On Wednesday, January 3rd, we stopped in Deatsville, Kentucky to see some friends and then spent the night in a hotel somewhere around Jackson, Tennessee. Thursday brought another long day as we decided to do some sight seeing and playing in Memphis before meeting my sister in Little Rock, Arkansas. We finally arrived home at 11:45PM Thursday, January 4th.

We traveled through nine states in eleven days and drove around three thousand miles!

We had a incredible time with family, and we are grateful to those who helped make this wonderful vacation possible.

Eleven Years Ago...

It was eleven years ago today that I married G. Wesley Kenney. I have been very blessed with a loving, fun, romantic, compassionate, and godly man. Wes and I have had an exciting eleven years, and I know the next eleven will be no different! I wouldn't trade one day of the last eleven years, because each and every day has brought me closer to the man I love.

Happy Anniversary Wesley!!!!!! I love you, and I will still love you when you're 64!!!!
