We spent the Thanksgiving holiday in Nashville TN with Carrie, Thomas, Lily, Patrick and Maggie. Nicole came with us. What a wonderful time! We cooked and ate and played and ate and visited and ate...you get the drift :)
We spent some time talking to Carrie and Thomas about our future plans. They are very supportive and think it's great. They also said they would take the butcher block and Grandma Herrick's cedar chest. I told both girls they could have whatever they wanted from the house before we sold things, so they are starting to "put their names on things". Nic wants the black steamer trunk and the sofa console table.
On Friday, we all went to the Opryland Hotel and Convention Center. It was all decked out for Christmas and half of Nashville was there. It was something to see! The kids loved the water show. They had water spouts that "danced" to Christmas music. Very cool. After that we treated the kids to supper at Mickey Dee's. That was another big hit. We were in bed before 10:00...just plain pooped out...a successful end to a very nice day. Morning was coming soon and it would be time to hit the road.
Once "on the road" we can (hopefully) spend more time in Nashville-or just outside-so we can spend more time with the grandkids. There are several nice state parks in the area.
