Videos of a “Venturous” Vacation: Memorable Moments in Music City

If you’re new to these episodes you gotta start….


Then Here

Then Here

And Finally Here.

In an effort to start wrapping up this great Ad-“Venture” here are some of my favorite pics from the 4 day event, and then a video montage to follow (since I had to keep with the “video” theme). In case you are wondering, many of these were taken at the Gaylord Opryland Resort which is a MUST see when in Music City.

Just The 17 of Us

Yet Another Failed Attempt to Get a “Perfect” Family Photo

Taking a Dip in the Fountain

Gotta Love the Shots from Behind

Make sure to listen to the lyrics of “Broken” by Jack Johnson….(Ironically, this CD was playing in the van during our break down.)

Stay Tuned for the Grand Finale and the Revealing of our NEW VAN to be delivered to the Murray Casa Tomorrow!!!!

    just wondering, do clark and brooks share the special bond which is so famous about monozygotes? or are they too young for you to figure out yet?

    Brooks and Clark certainly share a connection that is unique. They still like to sleep in the same crib and are constantly doing things similarly that crack us up. We definetely notice a difference in their relationship versus all of the other boys relationships with each other.

    But, in many ways, they are probably still too young to see how strong their relationship will truly be as it relates to their shared DNA. They are very, very different in a lot of ways too.

    I enjoy reading about your precious family! Isn’t the Opryland Resort awesome? My husband had a conference there when our daughter was 8 months old. I flew by myself from Ohio to Nashville to surprise him….long story which will surely require a blog post some day 😉

    We were at the Gaylord Opryland jsut a few weeks ago ourselves. That would have been funny (for me) if I had seen the quads I read about all the way from Texas.

    Bunny – I used Window’s Movie Maker and inserted Title Slides at the End to synchronize with the music. It took a little tweaking, but I got it! =)

    I haven’t commented before, but I’ve been following your blog for a while now. I’m from the Indy area (Fishers) and actually work at Opryland now.

    You all are amazing parents and such a huge inspiration as Christ followers! Good luck and God Bless!
