This morning we cast off, in flurries of snow, leaving Nashville behind us. We spent a lovely week with Claire and Brad, Nash, Ben and Finnley. After a finely tuned arrival, we surprised Nash at his school concert. The look on his face as he saw us while singing his first song – priceless and forever etched in our memories.
Each day we spent with Claire and kids (who were not at school); each night, eating with the whole family. We went sightseeing in Franklin (historic town), Belle Meade (historic plantation), Fort Granger (Civil War battle site); shopped in Franklin (successfully); dined in the many restaurants, sampling all types of cuisines. Ohhh yeah! Franklin is NICE. A foodies’ delight!
But the best thing about Franklin, was being with Claire and Brad and the grandkids. While Claire and Brad had time out to celebrate their 12th wedding anniversary, we made pikelets, danced to AC/DC, played Monopoly, created with Playdough, read stories and watched movies together. All producing great memories.
Now? Oh my achy breaky heart. 😥
Such is life!
