Family Comes To Town!

Last week I was blessed to have family and friends visit me in Nashville.  My parents and brother and sis-in-law all flew in on Thursday!  After the conference wrapped up Thursday evening Olivia and I went to dinner with mom and dad at a lovely restaurant downtown, Merchant’s.  Then we hungout at Dad’s favorite Tootsie’s of course.

Merchant's dessert is amazing.

Friday, Olivia had to fly home… So we did a little drive thru around Vanderbilt and midtown then took her to the airport.  Once we got back to my apartment our friends, the Thompson’s had made it to town too!  I took all the girls down to the farmer’s market to show off what I talk about so much!  We got some fresh peaches and stocked back up on the amazing strawberry jelly!  We all had dinner at a little steakhouse downtown, Demo’s, and it was fantastic.  I had the lasagna… YUMM!

Well… My parents have been coming to Nashville for a long time, and they always griped because they said there was nowhere good to eat.  My dad is now in LOVE with Merchant’s we had it again on Saturday for lunch so Casey and Sara could join us!  We spent the majority of the day hanging out at Tootsie’s listening to the wonderful live music.  They truly do have the best music in town!

Love you brother!

Love you, Brother!

Love you, Daddy!

Love you, Daddy!

Sunday was relaxing waking up to my dad cooking breakfast and then just hanging out at my apartment.  We drove out to Old Hickory Lake and looked around, it’s gorgeous.  The water is so clear.  Then it was off to bed early to get ready for the work week!

My parents flew home Monday morning.

So so thankful to have had visitors!  Loved it so much!

Nashville for a few more weeks,
