In early May we were gone for a work trip so we made the best of it and stayed a week in Nashville. It started May the 11th we headed in to spend the day with Juju & Melynn. We shopped a little bit and had a family Dinner that night. Sunday we got up and took Mimi to breakfast at Waffle house ( her choice) and shopped for most of the day. We had an impromptu photo shoot in the front pasture with all the pretty yellow flowers. Monday we got up and went to spend the day with Great Grandaddy- Played at the house then lunch at Cracker Barrell. We came home and relaxed then went to Brentwood to meet J & John Everett for Dinner. ( they came into town for a meeting) Tuesday- we met up with MiMi and headed to Pigeon Forge for my work conference. We got checked in and headed to Gatlinburg. We went straight to the Ripley's Aquarium. You loved it. You especially loved it when we let you out of the stroller to get up and close with the tanks. Wednesday- We got up and went to brunch and then Mommy had meetings for her conference. That afternoon we went shopping at the Outlet mall and got you some goodies! Thursday I had meetings all day so you and Mimi walked up the Strip to shop at some stores! She said you were so good for her. That night we finished up shopping and went to the pool for a little bit. You were a little afraid of the water but did okay after a few minutes. Friday we packed up and headed home! You slept the entire way home! Thank goodness! That night we stayed at Jujus and played with Melynn! Saturday we got up and took Granddaddy out to breakfast and picked up the cookies for Jenny's Sprinkle Shower! Saturday afternoon was the Preakness Party with the Unlands! We had mini horse races but those were a flop! You decorated and named your horse " Ball". Sunday we got up got ready for Jenny's Sprinkle shower! Baby Colette got several cute things. After the shower we hurried home to see Daddy, Grandaddy, Mama T & Poppa TD! They missed you so much!

I'll leave you with this little Gem of a picture!
