While I've Been Away...

Whew! I'm tired...pooped!

I'm gonna quickly post some photos that will tell you what I've been up to.

My Mother-in-law spent two weeks with us. She really is a love. I kept the baby during the day and we stayed busy during the evenings.

We had some good family time. She cooked for me one night. Her crockpot Mac and cheese is the bomb. David grilled pork chops and Grandma did the rest.

She enjoyed getting to know the babies. The oldest baby girl was not nearly as independent the last visit. 

Our table is not big enough for us all to sit around. Something must be done about that!

This little one is wanting to dress herself!

We ate way too much,

And partied way too hardy!

Grandma and Keith Urban at the Grand Ole Opry. It was a surprise! She loved it!

We saw Diamond Rio, Connie Smith, Bill Anderson, some old geeziers who sang some good blue grass, some cowboys who sang westerns and the featured guests, The Oak Ridge Boys. 

We had nosebleed seats but technology gives you front row seating.

We were hoping for a little bit of Gospel music. We didn't get it at the Opry, but we attended a gospel sing at our church on Sunday evening.

We went to hear some great Irish music at McNamara's Irish Pub. It is some of my favorite.  

And the fun...To Be Continued...

  9. I have been enjoying seeing your photos on facebook. What fun! Love the Oak Ridge Boys too...we saw them MANY years ago (and I mean many) in Troy, OH...my gosh, it must have been 1980...all I know is Aaron was a baby and he LOVED the song "Elvira". We had that album and he would ride his horse on springs and gallop as hard as he could singing "Giddy Up, Oom Poppa Oom Poppa Mow Mow, Giddy Up, Oom Poppa Oom Poppa Mow Mow, Hiho Silver, AWA-A-AY!!!" Lol!
