Our GREAT friends, the Carpenters, came to visit and stay with us for 5 days in July. We all went and did some Nashville-ish things while they were here. We hadn't done any of these things yet, so it was like a little vacation for us even though it was here in our own backyard. We had a GREAT time and are SO glad they came to visit! Our kids all had a fantastic time too! Here are some pics of our little vacation.
One night we went to a drive-in movie in Franklin, Kentucky, which is just about 30 minutes away. They play two movies, a kids movie and an adult movie. It was a lot of fun, but didn't start until 8:15, since it has to be dark. It was a pretty late night for us.
This is Bryleigh, Hollace and Rhett on the way home. They all fell asleep during the last movie...except Rhett, he lasted until the 30 min. drive home.
EVERY time Margo and I are together we get asked if we are sisters, or twins. I bet we were asked 6 or 7 times while they were here.
One night we went to the Grand Ole Opry. We had never been and it was a pretty good night to go. Carrie Underwood and Clay Walker were there.
Our seats were way up in the top, but here is Carrie Underwood-if any of you are big fans.
We went for a ride down the Cumberland River on the General Jackson Showboat. It was a dinner and a show which was a tribute to country music through the years.
Hollace and her best friend Brynn. They had SO much fun together.
We also toured a historical plantation, which I took a bunch of pictures of, so I will save that for another post.
