Can you tell it’s summer?
And our slow season?
And we’re FINALLY catching up on all the things?! Blogging and dare I say… Instagram-ing?!?!
While in Tennessee for Kami and AJ’s wedding, our Muppet got to spend the weekend being spoiled rotten by his aunt and uncle in Nashville. There was ice cream and horseback riding and chicken-feeding and painting and even a rodeo! He had one heck of a 48 hour adventure! My one request was they save going to the Nashville Zoo with us. I’m not kidding when I say it’s my favorite thing to do in our old hometown, and if I only have one day to play, that’s where I’m headed! <3
Before I get to the zoo, here’s some proof that I’m not exaggerating when I tell you Aunt LoLo had a magical packed itinerary. My favorite? She helped him create his first “art show,” and she had it on display when we got back from our wedding.
She had him title each painting, which immediately made this piece my favorite: “A Fish Deep in the Water, but We Can’t See It.”
Ok ok, on to zoo day!
The single best thing in Nashville? The Nashville Zoo’s *CAGELESS* KANGAROO EXHIBIT.
As long as they’re on the pathway, you can pet them. Our animal-loving boy was smitten. <3
If this kid doesn’t become a veterinarian, I’ll be shocked. His favorite part of the visit was snuggling LoLo and Jon’s chickens. <3
Nashville is too far away. :(
