Our weekend and Ike

We had a wonderful weekend in Nashville. We ate dinner at the Rainforest Cafe Friday night and shopped in Opry Mills. We found a great Chinese store there and bought the girls new outfits for Chinese New Year. Olivia can't get any taller or hers won't fit come February! Saturday we went to the Country Music Hall of Fame, walked downtown and ate a late lunch/early supper. After taking a nap, we went to the Opryland Hotel and took their little river cruise. Sunday we ate breakfast and drove home.

On the drive home, we experienced some rain and lots of high winds. We had 65-75 mph winds here and once we arrived home found out we were powerless. Our power was out for about 3.5 hours. Apparently our county still has some schools without power as school is cancelled again tomorrow. Our neighboring county has 100 schools without power and 301,00 customers in the dark. This does not bode well with the Ryder Cup starting there tomorrow! They expect it to take 10-14 days to restore the power to every one.


  1. Glad your power is back on. Sounds like a fun weekend!

  2. Holy cow! Y'all got worse weather than we did!

    Glad you had a good time though, it sounds like it was a blast.

  3. Sounds like a fun weekend!

    So glad your power is back...I could not imagine 10-14 days without it!


  4. It is crazy that you can be affected all the way in Kentucky. Powerful storm. I LOVE Nashville. We usually stay at Opryland Hotel and we love going to Opry Mills. We usually go every year, but did not get a chance to this year. Maybe we can meet there since we missed the KSF.
    Hugs to you all!

  5. Sounds like you guys had a great time celebrating your 15th anniversary!!!!

  6. Glad you had fun in Nashville! We've stayed at the Opryand a few times for dance competitions so can really relate to where you were and what you did!!

  7. It sounds like you had a great trip. We are planning to visit Opryland sometime. I've heard it's really nice. Also, it would be great to go to the zoo with you guys. Kailee would love it.


Our friends say the sweetest things!
