Memorial Day weekend in Nashville

The Thursday before Memorial Day, we left after school to drive towards Nashville! We have spent Memorial Day weekend there several times, visiting with my brother & his family, as well as my parents & grandmother. We took the girls out of school for Friday, so we could get the head start on Thursday.

The girls enjoyed staying in a hotel along the way.

Arkansas rest stop....

Together at last! Sonic before Ann Elise's softball game.

Waiting for the game to start.

Gracie, bonding with Grammer & Bigmother

Morgan & Katie...trouble! LOL

I love this picture of Bigmother bonding with Ellie.

Nashville is so pretty!

me & Bigmother!

Saturday, we went to the zoo.

Ann Elise is 22 months younger than Gracie, but well on her way to being much taller than her!

We were excited to see our friends, Will & Jenni. We were friends with them when we all lived in Aiken, and they now live in Nashville.

Ice Cream break!

We had Ann Elise's birthday party that evening. Katie was happy with that cake & ice cream!

Morgan's icing matched her outfit!

Ellie was a bit nervous here.....

Time for bed???

We left Monday morning at 5:15 for the 13 hour drive back home!

It was a long weekend but well worth it!
