What a trip! Gosh, I missed those people.
The drive was not bad in the least. The kids were excited to see their cousins, so they didn't want to stop every 5 minutes. They were moderately entertained by the car treats I packed, and of course the DVD played Shark Tale on and on and on..
Once we arrived in Nashville, it was like a friend and family reunion. So many people we had not seen in forever--just picked up right where we left off. The kids all got along running for endless buckets of ice in the hotel lobby and playing video games. We spent, ate, drank, and talked way too much, but it was entirely too short of visit.
That's the last of the weddings for our crew. We're hoping to start an annual long weekend vacation next year, which would be fantastic.
Now, it's back to the grind. Tomorrow is the last day of school, so it will be time to recalibrate the daily routine...
