The kids and I returned from a fun week in Nashville. Jason was able to come up Thursday night after work and spend Friday and Saturday morning with us. On Wednesday the kids and I spent the day in the pool. My mom and I got away later that afternoon and shopped a little. I got some great deals at the outlet mall. Tara and I headed north on Thursday to get some corn and tomatoes. On Friday we went to Opry Mills to Build-A-Bear. The kids received Birthday Bear Bucks and they both got to experience all things Build-A-Bear! Here are some pictures from our trip.

That pool looks so inviting I want to just jump in myself!

Love your pics as always. Sounds like you & Tara had fun.


Looks like ya'll had a great time! I'm sure your parents loved having ya'll there for a few days. :) We hope to do Build-A-Bear one of these days before too long...maybe Christmas or three year old b-day. I want to make sure that they're old enough for it to be fun for everybody. It's expensive, too. I bet you wish ya'll had that pool here all of the time. It looks so nice.

I am glad that you guys made it back home and that you had a fun week. I feel like we haven't visited in forever...with all of our traveling. I'm hoping to have everyone out this week that wants to go to the pool. If you guys are to sick of the pool already. : )

All of the pictures from the week are so cute! I know everyone was so happy to see you guys.

Good update...I'm glad you had a chance to visit with your family with nothing else going birthdays or trips! :)

Build-A-Bear looks fun...I can't imagine going, though---we already have 80,000 stuffed animals, I think!

Man, the pool looks nice! We had fun last year at the party, I'm sure you guys enjoy that when you go up to visit!

Jackson looks like Jack Nicholson with those shades on.
