Weekend in Nashville

C, Daddy, and Z making silly faces at Ruby Tuesdays on our way up to Nashville.
Mommy and M making sweet faces.
C wanted to take a picture of his mac 'n cheese lunch. He actually took this picture himself.
M then took a picture of her turkey burgers and fries.

And Z took a picture of her shrimp and fries.

The kids posing with good 'ole Jack Daniel.
Cave springs---were they get the pure water to make the liquor
This a tower of whiskey bottles from the Single Barrel Reserve Room. A barrel can range in cost from $9000 to $12,000.
The reason for our trip to Nashville was to see Daddy's second cousin, Lauren wed Brad. There the happily married couple poses with Lauren's parents.
Clowning around with the cousins. Our kids LOVED hanging out with them.
Cutting of the cake
All of the kids waiting to taste a bite of the wedding cake. C waited so patiently for it and when they cut it, he said, "Finally!! I've been starving for some cake!". Needless to say, the entire room erupted in laughter.
More family hanging out and chatting.
We had a great time in Nashville this past weekend. We left on Friday so we could take time to visit the Jack Daniel's Distillery. It was a great tour and the kids actually enjoyed it too. Ben could have lived in the Barrel House b/c of the smell of liquor and the kids thought it smelled "stinky".
On Sat., we went to the wedding of Daddy's 2nd cousin, Lauren. It was a very simple and beautiful wedding. This was the 1st wedding that the kids had ever been too. M loved every moment of it. Z seemed a little bored and C did what most boys do in in trouble!!!
After the wedding, we went back to Daddy's 1st cousin's house, along with about 40 other family members, and had dinner together. It was so awesome to see his family and catch up all night.
On Sunday, we went to the hotel where most of the wedding party was staying and had a worship service with his family around the pool. It was awesome and you could feel God's presence everywhere. The best part of the service is when they asked if anyone had a song they would like to sing (meaning a worship song), C raised his hand and said, "Row, Row, Row Your Boat". We all happily sang it as C acting as an orchestrator. It was too cute!!!
