Ahhh, what a beautfiul weekend.

What a wonderful weekend! We could not have asked for better weather this weekend and we took full advantage of it. Saturday night we enjoyed the peaceful country setting and live music at Arrington Vineyards. They had such a crowd and I'm sure the weather had everything to do with it. We plan to go back this Saturday night - and early to get a great seat and picnic. Come and join us if you want!

This morning we went to early church - which we love, you get out so early and have a full day ahead of you! We took a drive to Radnor Lake and walked the Lake Trail which again was so very peaceful. We enjoyed a nice walk and snack in the park. And I'm pretty sure we walked right past Bryan White - and no, again, I was not a stalker fan. I let him go on his merry way. After a workout we then grilled out steaks, ate outside and I enjoyed the remainder of the daylight and nice weather sitting on the front porch reading The Friday Night Knitting Club.

How is it Monday already!?!?!

A Day at the Zoo

Friday Mark and I captured our niece Rachel for a day. We started with sitting outside for lunch at McDonald's then headed to the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere. We had so much fun with this talkative 3 year old girly girl. We saw all kinds of birds, loved the big elephants, the giraffes, zebras, alligators, tigers, horsies, goats, and monkeys. She knew almost every animal but loved the giraffes and elephants most. As she rode the carousel she really enjoyed sitting on the monkey as we went up and down. She did so good but as we were headed to the last exhibit she told us she was ready to go. We enjoyed a chocolate ice cream cone and all outfits stayed clean! She is such a momma's girl but we didn't even mention momma on Friday. :) Then we came home and she helped me make cookies. We can't wait for our next day out with Rachel!

She is riding a monkey!

Who is licking the ice cream? Me or Rachel?

Cool Shades!
