A couple of weeks later we were very thankful that we were able to get in a weekend road trip before school starts. First we headed south to Nashville, TN. We stopped at the Parthenon, a mall (or two) then headed on to Huntsville, AL. Callie had really been wanting to go to the Huntsville Space Museum. I went when I was a kid, but I really didn't remember anything about it. It was fun and I'm glad we went. The weather cooperated for Kate's only wish which was to swim in the hotel pool. Sunday there was a little more shopping and then we headed home. It was fast, but still very relaxing and we had a great time. If you are ever in Huntsville you need to go to the Po' Boy Factory! Yum!!
I even ran into an old college friend in Nashville. I had been wishing I could meet up with some friends in TN and AL, who I haven't seen in ages, but I knew there just wasn't enough time. It was so surprising to see my friend outside one of the malls in Nashville! So I got to meet up with someone after all.
We will be starting school this week so hopefully we'll have some fun first day of school pictures to show soon.
