We had a good ol' time in Tennessee, and here are the pictures to prove it:
Birdwatching at Nora and Dan's house:
Mexican food at Cancun's with Nora and Dan:
Every morning there were deer in Grandie and Grandpa's backyard. Seamus hasn't stopped talking about the big mama deer and her babies. This was the best picture I could capture without scaring them all off:

We wish we had more time to visit all the friends and family we've been missing for so many months now, but such is the nature of a last-minute, unplanned, very brief trip.

We miss you all already!
And now we're home. It was great to get away from the hustle and bustle and take a break from job searching. And Seamus was happy to see Papa this morning. They watched little Fox and the Hound before breakfast:
