Meet my amazing Aunt and Uncle. My Aunt Shirley is my mom's eldest sister and with my Grandma passing away when I was in kindergarten, my Aunt became like a Grandma to me. In fact, so much so that Stephen and I asked her to walk in in honor of my Grandma at our wedding. Things you should know about my Aunt Shirley and Uncle Gene: they love the Lord with all their heart and they love and serve each other in ways that I hope Stephen and I do when we've been married for 50 years. With that being said, we didn't bat an eye at the idea of driving 11 hours to celebrate such a wondrous occasion with them!
Their anniversary celebration was Friday night with a day filled with family reunion festivities on Saturday. For all you Nascar fans out there, my Uncle Gene arranged a private tour of the Bristol Motor Speedway for us on Saturday morning. I begrudgingly went, thinking it wouldn't be that fun and I couldn't have been more wrong! We got to drive around the track and had a blast doing it!
This was us on the top of the embankment - it was super steep!
Stephen was driving - going 60 felt like we were going 160!
Unfortunately, I've gotten REEEEAAAALLLLY bad at taking pictures and so I have no other pictures from this weekend...except for all of these:
Needless to say, I love him, A LOT!
What you do this weekend???
