Saturday morning, we woke up to sweet little voices in the next bed over, because really what’s more fun than waking up next to your brother or sister?
We eventually got out of our pajamas and headed to the breakfast buffet in the hotel and decided to spend the day hanging out around town.
We hit up the mall first for some back to school shopping, then we went to lunch at The Food Company, where we ate our farmraised organic non-GMO food inside a greenhouse! Gotta love Nashville!
After lunch we headed to the park and the Parthenon. In the 5 or so years Nick lived in Nashville, he never actually went in the Parthenon. It was definitely cool, and the MASSIVE statue of Athena blew us away! So fun!
When we got back to the room, we found the Winnies had made themselves comfortable in our absence.
By this point, the kids were pretty hot, and really wondering how much more walking they were going to be doing, in other words ready for the pool, but due to aforementioned college coeds, atmosphere of smoke, alcohol, suntan lotion, and Lord knows what else, that wasn’t happening, so we picked the lesser of two evils… The shower (GROSS, I know, but what can you do?!)
After we got cleaned up (lots of soap for these two!), we went downtown to eat and walk around some more. I think everybody and their mama was either bachelorette partying, out for a concert, sporting event or something, because PEOPLE… Everywhere!
We found a Mexican place that only had a 30 minute wait, then went down to the pedestrian bridge
Nashville at dusk was quite beautiful I must say!
Sunday morning, we got up and out in time to go to the
best breakfast place ever Monell’s. Hello, yum! Z at 2 biscuits, 2 cinnamon rolls, and a small pile of fried chicken! Lu ate great too, and the rest of us, well, the motto of the restaurant is “I’ve eaten and I can’t get up” and now I get that.
It was such a fun weekend with Nana and Tata and the perfect getaway before school starting the next week!
