Nash-Vegas lived up to it's reputation. It was the perfect combination of wide open spaces, and gorgeous houses. Down home diners, and eclectic restaurants. Campy country and tradition.
Franklin is the jewel of Nashville. Grand Dad and Mini Moo took us to a fabulous restaurant called "The Red Pony".
We dined on Tuna Tartare, shrimp grits with filet mignon, and sweet corn risotto. YUM. Franklin is the Darien CT, of Nash-Vegas. Look at how cute the main street is.
Other things we did? We went to a Hockey game and saw the predators get beaten to death, we went to the Aquarium restaurant and pet and fed Sting Rays (crazy!), and had Thanksgiving Brunch at the Hermitage Hotel.
Look at Baby Coco in her first taffeta dress, isn't she delicious? Thanks Grad Dad for a great time!!!
If your kids are dying to have a "sleep over" but are too young, try having a pretend one. Invite the friend over and leave the kids with a baby sitter while you and the parents go out for dinner. Let the kids have their sleeping bags and PJ's and go to sleep. When they wake up in the morning asking where their friend is, say they just left!
