We had such an awesome week in Nashville! Me and the kids took a trip to see Aunt Krystal and Mrs. Kate (Clemson friend). It was everything we expected and then some.
Thank goodness Meemaw was willing to make the trip with us, she made it so much easier. One could drive and one could tend to the children. They were suprisingly GREAT travelers!! I must say, they made me VERY proud in the car! Meemaw was very patient and understanding throughout the entire trip! WE are all glad she was there.
When we got to Nville, we went to the zoo, the monkey treehouse, downtown, Mrs. Kate's house, had a picnic in Centenial Park and visited with Aunt Krystal. It was so awesome. The zoo was incredible. Much much better than Riverbank Zoo. We spent 4 1/2 hours there and Mrs. Kate met us there. We got to meet Banks and we LOVED him!! Veda kept kissing him, and McCrae was full of questions for Mrs. Kate. The neighborhoods that surround Nashville are absolutely GEORGOUS!!!
Kate's house was by far the most beautiful house I've seen in a long time! She and her husband Brent have done an awesome job of renovating an old house into something that most only dream of!! It was absolutely incredible. I need pics, because words do not do it justice! Her son Banks was so well behaved, he just smiled every day and was so happy all the time. It was awesome to get to sit and catch up with Kate although we missed her husband, I'm hoping Kevin and I can get our families together again very soon. You forget how much you have in common with and miss old friends!
I have pictures from Krystal's camera, but only a few, Kate needs to email me hers. She'd just gotten a new camera and it was the MAC DADDY of a camera. Took great pics, can't wait to get some back!
Aunt Krystal and Uncle Stu Baby have the cutest house. They're renting now, but it was nestled in the best neighborhood. Filled with hills (which Mac loved to ride on his scooter, especially on the way down the hill), mature landscaping, and from the outside some of the hugest houses I've ever laid eyes on. I mean Nashville is no joke! It is beautiful!
Here are a few pics of the trip!
