The May Family

Get To Know Us
In 2010, when Nicole and I got hitched, we tied together two families into one then in 2012 and 2013 added three more to the batch for a family of ten. At the time we started making a home together, we lived in what is now the big May House and I set about remodeling and expanding the house over the years into what you see today. In 2015 we purchased the blue house next door and gave it a good rehab and tossed it on the rental market. Renting out was fun and the area was popular, so, I set my sights on the run-down trailer park next door. In 2018, Nicole and I purchased what is now Wauhatchie Woodlands and set out to clean it up and turn it into what you know today as Wauhatchie Woodlands. This process started in 2017 and took two years until the first cabins came in, all eight named for our kids!

In 2019 I designed and built the Chalet over an old block storage building in front of the May House. As we have added cabins and expanded into the park further, each cabin is named for someone very important in our lives, from the kid’s grandparents to our beloved six European exchange students we hosted and turned into family. In the section below, you can learn about the namesake of each cabin, all very important people in the greater May family. Wauhatchie is our home turf though we moved out in 2020 and we love this little place on earth as well as those that pay us a visit and stay in our homes and make their wonderful memories to share.

As the oldest May boy, Thomas is the fastest and most competitive.  He loves snow skiing, football, soccer, and high powered sports cars. But his mind is encyclopedic and can tell you anything you need to know about the NFL.


The oldest May kid is a brilliant and beautiful young lady about ready to shove off to university in 2021.  She loves to explore, hang with friends and siblings, rock-climb, ski, and is dependable and responsible.


Otherwise known as Ani Bug, she is a beautiful young lady passionate about soccer and building her future.  She is easily the most organized and tidy of all the kids and loves to hang out and explore with her sisters.


Most May’s are strong-willed kids, but Sophie is known as the sunshine with a connectional disposition and a brilliant and curious mind.  She is very athletic and beautiful like her sisters with a particular gift in soccer but a love of rock climbing.


The second May boy is one of the easiest people to get along with.  He comes off shy to the outside but in the family is hilarious, connectional and just downright fun.  Kai’s first sport is wrestling with soccer a good second and he loves cars as much as his brother Thomas.  


Eden is a bit eccentric and can be pretty fearless, and like her sisters – just plain gorgeous.  She is the first to pipe out with a prayer, and the quickest to boss the twins in play.  She has a unique style and big personality and is the classic Daddy’s girl.


River is thoughtful and somewhat contemplative compared to his twin Bryce.  Highly affectionate and deeply loyal, he loves to be a part of the action and try new things, except for food.  But like Eden is to Daddy, River is to Mom. 


Identical twin and youngest of the eight, Bryce is the jester of the family, sometimes shocking, sometimes rolling you over in laughter.  He is a bit more independent than River but tends to move in a pack with the three youngest. 


Ryon was born to Nicole 13 years before Nicole and Frank were married.  He is very close to his grandparents: Nana and Papa and is pursuing his degree at Chattanooga State.
