And we thought we wouldn't have enough things to do . . .

I arrived in Nashville last Friday. My flight went smooth, and there were no bumps!

My sister just quit her job recently, and we weren't sure how many fun things we were going to be able to do while I was here. Well... that wasn't something anyone needed to worry about.

When I came Friday, I spent the day with my (other) sister and her husband, and my nephew Owen. :) When my brother in law came to pick me up, (Josh) I was greeted by this in the guest room:

Saturday, my sister was working on a conference she had gotten hired to do. It was fun, but also very tiring. We were on our feet a lot, and more than ready to go home when we did.

Sunday was pretty much a relaxing day. We both were very tired from the conference (she worked 3 10+ hour days) so we just chilled. For dinner, we sat out on their patio and ate dinner. We grilled out and had chicken, squash and zucchini grilled, baked potatoes, and bread. It was delicious!

(the patio lights added a nice ambiance to things. Plus the relaxing music!)

On Monday, my sister and I ran errands. We didn't do a whole lot this day either. For dinner we went to my other sister's for my OTHER bro-in-law's birthday.

When we got home from the dinner, we (Ashley, Josh, myself) started playing Scrabble while watching the Yankees play the Kansas City Royals. Josh mentioned that they were playing a game on Tuesday, and jokingly said we should go. Then, Ashley mentioned how she thought the drive was only about 5 and a half hours. We decide to go. What the heck? Josh is very detail oriented, and is so excited about going to see the Yankees (his favorite team) that he doesn't even think twice about checking the driving distance. As we check Google Maps just to see the route...we realize it's 9 and a half hours. Oops. Tickets already bought, hotel booked.

We arrive early for batting practice. This was my first major league game!

On our way home, we have to go though St. Louis so we decide to stop at the Gateway Arch.

They say you can see for 30 miles on a clear day.

On Thursday, Josh and Ashley mainly played catch up.
Ashley and I swung by Sweet CeCe's to grab some frozen yogurt. It was my first trip, so I went all out. :)

My bro in law Josh is the road manager for the band Hawk Nelson. They had a show in Leitchfield, Kentucky on Friday, so Ashley and I decided to drive up and see the show. We hung out on the bus a lot, and this sign is in the bathroom:
I'm sorry. It's funny.

Then, the show.

PHEW! What a whirlwind of a week!
I think we're ready to take it a little bit slower this week. We're planning on going to the zoo, a museum, painting, and playing Scrabble.

How was your week?
