Two nights before everyone was to leave Kristen randomly called me while I was waiting to go see a movie. In the midst of that conversation she connected the dots and realized I would be home alone. I told her to forget about it, it was too expensive, etc...
By the time I exited the theater I had received a text that she had found two free Southwest tickets and had credit for the third ticket. MANIPULATOR. We were off to Nashville!
Since I had such short time to pack I forgot my camera but I did take a few shots with Kristen's camera.
One day we met my college friend, Ashley (Burton) Sanders, and he son Noah at the Nashville zoo. I hadn't seen Ashley in a year so it was nice to catch up. But, thanks to her blog (see my side bar - Two Sweet Feet) and mine we basically already knew everything about each other. It was as if we could continue a conversation that we had previously left off.
Here is the insane playground at the zoo.
I don't know what you would call this thing. The looky-thingy at the meercat den? The observation tube? The meercats were running around all over the place and you feel as if you're a part of the pack. Ever watch Meercat Manor? I was waiting for Sean Astin to do a voice over and announce that we had attempted to join the pack and that Flower found us to be outsiders.
I gotta give credit where credit is due. Noah Iin red) is the best for pictures. He looked up. He smiled. He remained still. The rest of them are useless in front of a camera.
One day the kids got out of the kiddie pool but due to my poor math skills we were one towel short. Lily and Jamie shared one and I took advantage of their giggly-ness.
