Unexpected visit to Tennessee

About a week ago I realized that while Dane was going to CA for a theological conference for an entire week I was going to be home alone with Zachary. So... I made some last minute phone calls and Zachary and I hopped on a plane to visit Mayme and Bapa for the week.

There is a kiddie park across the street from their house with a slide for children under 5. Zachary had so much fun exploring the park with Mayme.








And then . . . Zachary discovered the big kids slide for ages 5 - 12! Mommy even thought the slide was a bit big and fast for adults. The first time Zachary got to the top of the slide he let go himself and LOVED it! Then he climbed back up to the slide again and went down again - all by himself!! Here's a peek at the second ride.

Zachary is famous!!
This picture was taken by a famous TN photographer who had his work displayed in the mall. Mom Ortlund and I were walking by and saw this one of Zachary and his cousins.
