Quote for the Day:
"I'm so happy the family is coming over so we can all talk over each other
at extremely loud volumes."
I was contacted by one of my readers...who also happens to be my niece... to let me know that I hadn't posted on my blog for several days! Okay....I get the hint! LOL
We've been in Tennessee visiting with our daughter, Erin, her fiance, Dale, and her daughter, Sera.
If you are astute, you will notice that I called Dale Erin's FIANCE! Yep...it's official! The first night we arrived, Dale took all of us up to "Love Circle" in downtown Nashville to "show us the skyline at sunset." While there he just "happened" to pull out a HUGE diamond ring and proposed to Erin!
After all of that excitement, we all went out to eat at J. Alexander's in Nashville to celebrate! When we told the waitress what the occasion was, she brought us dessert "on the house" as a gift from the restaurant! :)
The next day, Paul, Trinity, and Andrew arrived in from Georgia because this just happens to be Sera's 6th birthday, and of course, we all came out to celebrate it with her! :)
Her party was held at the local park and as you can see, the kids had a ball...even if they are all incognito! LOL
Saturday afternoon Erin, Trinity, and I went and got pampered with pedicures!
On Saturday night, the family went out to eat at Hattie B's in downtown Nashville. Let's just say that Paul...who likes extremely hot and spicy food...finally met his match! LOL I think smoke was coming out of his ears before the meal was finished! LOL
The rest of the weekend was spent just enjoying each other's company, watching TV, etc. You know...just relaxing! :)
Monday was a rainy, yucky day so we decided to do some "indoor" stuff. Dale, Andy, and I went to Antique Archaeology...the "American Pickers" store in Nashville.
No...Mike and Frank were not there. :( The store is really small even though it is in a HUGE warehouse building, so it didn't take long to go through it. I have to say, I was a little disappointed for as much stuff as Mike and Frank "pick" that they didn't have much stuff in the store. :( I think they make most of their money at this store from the sale of "American Pickers" souvenirs.
But here's a couple of pictures from the inside of the store...
The second picture basically shows one half of the store, so you can see that it isn't very big. After leaving there we proceeded to visit an antique mall....nice and big...more to our liking. :) Dale found some FireKing glassware there, but Andy and I walked out empty-handed. That's okay...we like browsing anyway! :)
Stay tuned for more "exciting" vacation recap coming up in another day or so! :)
