Last weekend while I was away at Kentucky Lake for our semi-annual sister's crop, Sandy and family came in town for the Kid Rock Fit Fry and concert. By the time I found out about it, my plans had already been on the calendar for months. Stephanie and Nicky missed them too as they were in New Orleans for the weekend. I sure missed seeing them, but Thanksgiving will be here before you know it.

Still, the family kept me in the loop with photos of their activities over the weekend.
 On Friday, Butch, Greg, Sandy and Elizabeth went geo-caching. Elizabeth had never been to Centennial Park, so that was fun for them.
Some of their geo-caching took them to East Nashville, so they stopped at I Dream of Weenie food truck for hotdogs for lunch. I haven't been there, but it's on my list. I'm happy to know that they do have some seating. 

Friday afternoon, Mindy picked up Victoria and Elizabeth and took them for manicures. Afterwards they went to a hibachi place and then to the movie to see "Storks." They said it was a really cute movie.
On Saturday, the whole family went to Octoberfest in Germantown. Apparently, coordinating that many people was somewhat of a fiasco. They eventually all met up and enjoyed the booths, beer gardens and music. Getting food required long waits in line. Next year, the plan is to eat first before it gets too crowded.
 The weather was perfect for strolling around.

Stephanie and Nicky got home on Saturday night. That meant that Stephanie was able to spend Sunday with the girls before they headed back to school. They went to a pumpkin patch in Franklin and then to lunch.

We just found out today that Mindy and Justin are going to be able to join us at Sandy and Greg's for Thanksgiving. The will be the first time we've all been together since last Christmas. With the young adults school schedules and jobs, our time together is hit or miss. We'll take whatever we can get.


  1. Lots of happy faces in your photos - that looks like great fun. How nice to be having them all meet up again soon ...

  2. Oh how fun - I like that they got together and shared photos with you. Yeah for Thanksgiving together.

  3. Lots of fun was going on there. And yes, Thanksgiving will be here before we know it and Christmas not far behind. Yikes!!
