Tons of fun in Tennessee!!!

I think I've been putting off this post, since it was our last trip of the summer which makes me sad and for some reason putting it on here makes it all the more real to me that the summer fun is coming to an end.

Hurray for Tennessee! Tay's family has a cabin right on the's a beautiful lake and the water is glass all day long! I've got to say, I love to take lots of now all of you can feel like you were really there with us :)

Tay's amazing's some still shots and there's a video of his stunts at the end of this post too!

I prefer skiing and love it! The water truly was glass all day long and I was so looking forward to skiing on this water again, I brought my new ski all the way there! There's no better feeling than slicing through water that's like butter!

...and here's Tay's twisty cool thing :)

Here's me trying to be like Tay...I actually cleared the wake by the end of the trip and landed it! Sadly... we didn't get it on video, but I have a video of an attempt at the end of this post.

Garrett and Christine and Nick and Elizabeth
Matt, Erianne (below), and Aleah (above)!

Tay and Steve...don't we all love word warp!

We got pedi's and mani's earlier for Christine's wedding reception in you can see my polish is already coming off...but had to get a pic of those cute flowers! Don't we all love getting pampered sometimes!
Steve is the man!

We didn't have a skurf board, but made up our own wake surfing with what we old kneeboard :)
love the hair Tay!

So beautiful!
The whole family has been reading the Wheel of Time series and have been having fun with comparing ourselves to the characters of the books...
So I have to give a little narrative to this picture...
Garrett: "Hey Rand I'm here to help you defeat the Dark One...burn him!".
Tay: "Thank the light Perrin, I couldn't do it without you!
more word warp! we love it! (notice how both Steve and Debbie have I-phones :)
Happy Birthday Christine! Here we are at her favorite place to eat...Texas Roadhouse...good thing they had one in Nashville...which is an hour away from the lake and we all crammed into a 5 passenger truck (below) to get there! That's how much we love Christine :)

Tay and I going out running in our five finger vibram shoes...we love them! I truly recommend them to anyone by the way.

heeeeeey steve!
playing in the rain...

haha I love this one...Elizabeth was pushing Nick in the looks like Nick is running toward her on the water!
we had so much fun playing on this big blow up toy that I had to include some of these pics...more fun videos below :)

Here's Tay and I going back to Ohio from Tennesse in Steve's fun! Tay's getting his pilot's license someday too, which I'm really glad he's doing because I have absolutely loved flying! We had a great trip...until next year Tennessee!


  1. Ooooh, that looks like so much fun! We went to the cabin 3 years ago w/ Matt & Erianne. Need to get back next summer for sure. Nice job on the skiing. I've never heard of those running shoe things- what are they?

  2. Those pictures and videos are way fun! Thanks for posting them it looks like you guys had a great time!

  3. I love that the Weights have that great place in TN. It's wonderful that all of you could be together and spend a fun week playing. Thanks for all the pictures, I love them!

  4. Cami! I'm so glad you found my blog and left me yours! It's so good to see what you've been up to. You look amazing, btw.

  5. Looks like you and Taylor had a blast! It made me smile to know you were in the land that I love--Tennessee!
