Happy Monday y'all! It was a good summer weekend round these parts. Nashville schools start back this week, and while our little man doesn't start for a few weeks we decided to play tourist in our own city and weekends like that are ALWAYS a good time. I think this weekend prompted me to put together some "how to do Nashville with kids" posts that may help anyone visiting with some ideas. But, that will take some time, effort and legitimate thought and planning that is frankly just too much for my brain on a Monday morning. So, in the meantime I'll just share a little recap of what we did, and then formulate real thoughts and methodical planning you can put to good use in a few weeks. Capische?
We woke up Friday to some fun mail. I love snail mail, and especially mail funnies from friends just to let you know they're thinking of you. This was from our friend Jenni ... it's a picture of a blue duck, because she'd never seen a blue duck before ... get it?! Billy Madison anyone?! Ha!
Katie Marie Photographie.
Rita's Ice Cream truck.
King Tuts Moroccan food.
Crazy Town for some live music, drinks and snacks. Bennett and I owned the dance floor and we said a little thanks for putting our beers on the menu!
Savannah's Candy Shop to let little man fill up a bag of candy. Candy stores are so fun with kids. The saying "a kid in a candy store" is so true. His little eyes light up and watching him meticulously study all the candies to ensure he gets his favorites its so adorable.
From Savannah's we headed to Wild Horse Saloon. The upstairs bar was closed, but all of the game tables were open, so we had the whole floor to ourselves and played all the games.
Sunday we had just a regular ole chill family day and it was the perfect end to a great weekend. We ran errands to prep us for our upcoming trips and got all of our last minute items. And then we giggled and played and watched Lainey eat everything in sight!
