We had a large time...

and I still haven't recovered...This past weekend we went to Nashville to Ray's sister and her husband! We left Friday morning and took our time getting there! They both had to work Friday so we were in no hurry to get there. We got to Bellvue and decided to stop at the giraffe store (Toys R Us) to get out, stretch, potty, etc...And because Maci has a Hi-Pod (I-pod...Bren calls it a I-pad...Its all the same!) Brenly felt like she needed to look for one. I had already told Brenly that we could look for one, because we have 2 pretty long trips coming up (and instead of all of us having to listen to "her" music...she can use her I-pad!) So we finally find what we were looking for, Its a Disney mix stick- you can download music onto it OR you can buy a SD-disk (it looks like a camera disk) that already has music on it...And even better was the fact that it was on sale for $22.00 (It was originally $40 something!) and because it was such a good deal, we went ahead and snatched it up! She was soooooo excited! We then mosey down the road to their house and waited for Uncle Josh and NayNay to get home. As soon as they did, we headed out the door for Chuck E. Cheese (and yes, I took Aleve before we walked into the place!) Both girls (and Uncle Josh) had a large time playing games and riding rides!







After we got through with all that madness...It was still somewhat light outside and the weather was beautiful, so we decided to find a park...Uncle Josh knew of just the perfect one! We drove, and drove, and drove and we NEVER found it! By this time it was almost completely dark, but NayNay was going to come to the rescue...She knew of this "REAL" park that had lights, so we drove, and drove, and drove...and just as we were about to doubt their abilities to know about parks (But who can blame them, they don't have kids yet! Who, without kids needs to know where a park is!!) We round the corner and there it was...A "REAL" park with Lights! ALL of us had a big time playing. (and somebody was having a PARTY...so there was lots of good music playing!!) The park closed at 9:00, so we left and went home, only to realize that Uncle Josh and NayNay had nothing, and I mean nothing, for the kids to eat or drink...So while NayNay gets the girls ready for bed Josh and I made a Publix (I love that store!) run and got milk, juice, and goldfish to tide them over until we made it back home. We got home and watched just enough of the opening ceremony of the Olympics to get real excited about them being on for the next 2 weeks! We woke up Saturday and got ready to go to the Adventure Science Museum...It was lots of fun, and would've been alot more fun, had Avery acted halfway decent. She was exhausted and didn't really want any part of it! BUT it was still so much fun, Can't wait to go back when she is old enough to enjoy it like the rest of us!





We left there and went to Chick-Fil-A to eat lunch, played in the little rinky-dink playground and NayNay decided that we needed to go back to the "Real Park" so we left, went to get our stuff and went to play at the park...however it had turned hot, so the girls and I made our way back to Memphis! Are you tired yet, because I got tired just writing about it?!?!?
Thanks NayNay and Uncle Josh for having us! We had a blast and can't wait to come back and have some more fun!
