So here we go... let the marathon begin!
DAY ONE AND A HALF
Kevin and Mr. Bill. As I may have mentioned before, Mr. Bill was a big influence for the "good" in Kev's growing up years. He is a dear Christian friend who my hubby really looks up to. I was so glad to finally get a good picture of the two of them together.
We met my parents in Little Rock and Mr. Bill allowed us to leave our car in his driveway while we were on our big family adventure. Thanks Mr. Bill!!!
Let's see... Two moms, two dads, one "Grammy," one "Poohpa," one preteen girl, four hyper boys (ages 5 to 10) and two vans. Anybody remember seeing us? We certainly left an "impression" wherever we went!!!
First night we drove into Nashville. Love that town. We decided to eat at the Old Spaghetti Factory in downtown Nashville. If you like pasta, like my family does, it doesn't get much better. YUMMY!!!
My son and nephew decided to make paper airplanes out of their menus instead of coloring...imagine that!!! Of course, once the food arrived, we had some happy little boys.
Of course I had to take a picture of everyone else around the dinner table too... Now please forgive us for the travel clothes, bedhead hair and tired eyes. We had just rolled into town and went straight to dinner after "too many" hours in the car.
Dinner ended with the waiter singing "Happy Birthday" to my oldest nephew, who will turn nine next week. As you can tell by the boys' expressions, it was a funny moment.
As for the other "half" or this post, well here are some random family pictures taken the morning of day two, before we got in the car for some more traveling. (Notice the fixed hair and unwrinkled clothes.)
I will end today's post with just one more picture. My daughter calls this "Dad, did you take your blood pressure medicine today?!" I know after this picture marathon, you are probably looking a lot like my hubby in this picture, but thanks for hanging in there as I recapped the first day and a half of my family vacation. Hope you will come back tomorrow for day two...
