So maybe this post is a couple of weeks past due. But what a nice idea — 2013 in 13 photos. I saw the idea while browsing one of my favorite blogs – Life in Every Limb and I knew I wanted to do my own. The idea was from a link up to another blog (which I ended up following as well). It’s not surprising that I’m late to the party, but, as the saying goes: better late than never!
#1 These are a few of my favorite things: My children and Cades Cove.
#2 My first born received his First Holy Communion this past year.
#3 It’s called the stair slide. For a brief moment in time, I was the Best.Mom.Ever.
#4 At this point, it’s a family tradition to have our picture made in front of this sign every year.
#6 2013 was our best year yet for bear-spotting. This photo was taken on 441 on a cool November day.
#7 Unfortunately, the past year included several trips to Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville, TN for medical treatment. This photo was taken after a long day, but we wanted to make the most of our time there.
#8 A vacation at the beach seems to make all of life’s problems disappear for those lovely, beautiful seven days.
#9 Natalie Kate’s 1st day of Kindergarten! Lane’s first day of Pre-K! Mom’s first day of dropping everybody off at the same time and same place everyday! Hooray!
#10 Goodbye to our old friends, tonsils and adenoids. Honestly, so far we haven’t missed you.
#11 This was one of my favorite days of 2013. Our neighbor gave us one day tickets to Dollywood and we truly had the best day there. Great day, great memories.
#12 I don’t know if my daughter will remember dancing with me that night at the beach after dinner, but I will I never forget.
#13 What? They are hugging each other. That’s totally tender.
