Wilson County Fair

This past weekend we had the opportunity to take Ian and Clara to the Wilson County Fair. The Fair is always a big topic of conversation in the Mt. Juliet area. Some have said it’s a bigger event than the Tennessee State Fair. It’s located just east of Lebanon which is about a 25-minute drive from our house. We decided to make the trip on a Saturday morning before the crowds got too busy. While we only stayed for a few hours, I think it’s safe to say the kids had a good time. Here are a few pictures and videos from our day.

Murray, 2017 edition

This past weekend we all took a trip to Murray Kentucky. Murray holds a special place in our hearts because so many major events in our lives happened here. We both went to school here; We met here, Got Married here, developed our first relationships here. There are a number of things I could focus on, but I really want to narrow it down to a few, the first being the Church.

The Church (Elm Grove) is important to us because we received so much support from the people there. To this day, I’ve never felt so encouraged and blessed by the people around me. Many families there would have Alex and me over for dinner, buy us lunch after church, take us on trips. You name it, these guys did it. When we go back to Murray, we try to link up with as many of these people as possible.

We stayed with David and Dee Morgan. They’re a prime example of one of the families that really took us in. We spent a lot of time with them and with their family (Johnny, Cathy, Jayden, and Kaylee) this trip. Funny fact, when we first started spending time with the Morgans and Morris’, Kaylee was around 3 years old. The same age Ian is now. It’s crazy how quickly 7 years can pass! While Alex and I used to spend a lot of time playing games with Jayden and Kaylee, now their kids are playing games with our kids. It was humbling to realize this.

While there, we did some of the classics: went to Los Portales, Dumplins and DQ. Spent a Sunday morning at Elm Grove. Overall, it was a nice little trip. I’m glad we were able to go.

Here are a few shots from our visit.
