Intentional failure of visitation by father

My daughter, who now lives in Michigan with my 2 grandaughters, recently went to visit her daughters in Tennessee for her first visitation weekend (the father of my grandaughters was granted 8 weeks of custody in the summer after school ends in Michigan with my daughter having every second weekend with the girls until they return to Michigan at the end of the 8 weeks). The father and his girlfriend took the girls to Florida for a week and didn't return back until Monday morning at 4 am (my daughter's visit was to begin on Friday night at 6pm). He knew she would be in Tennessee on Friday by 6pm and still intentionally remained in Florida until Monday. Are there laws about this in Tennessee (refusal to allow visitation without reason)?
