I can't believe I'm just now getting to the Thanksgiving post. It's been a whirlwind of stomach flus, ear aches and colds over at the Andrews (not to mention a lot of nausea....I'll save that for another post).
We are finally almost on the mend, its taken over a week and a half but we are getting there. All I can say is thank goodness for Grandmas, ginger ale, Tylenol and Zofran.
This Thanksgiving we had an amazing opportunity to celebrate the holiday in Nashville. We were pampered with amazing food, top tier accommodations and cherished family time. We stayed at the Loews in Nashville, it recently had a remodel and now features a stunning bar and restaurant called 'Masons,' do you recognize it from a recent "Nashville" episode?
As always, both the children and adults were well pampered by Mama Boo and Papa Deke. The kids came to a suite full of their favorite snacks, new toys, and a place to run around with their favorite cousins.
Every morning Kip would stand at the our hotel room door and try to grab the handle to get out. When we let opened the door, he ran straight to and screamed (with joy) down the hallway to Mama Boo's room. He knew the routine and loved it.
Our Thanksgiving feast was an overwhelming spread of any and every type of meat/salad/appetizer/dessert/etc. Kip declined his turkey and mashed potatoes, instead he chowed down two chocolate cake pops... I guess you only have Thanksgiving once a year.
In proper Nashville style, the kids went to an authentic Cowboy Boot store and got their own pair of boots and cowboy hats. What is it with little boys dressed as cowboys? I couldn't get enough of it.
We celebrated Kip's cousin's 5th birthday during the week. These two have a special bond, it was so sweet to see Kip's excitement around his big cousin.
On our last day in Nashville we visited a beautiful private estate in Bel Meade. Cheekwood was beautiful even in chilly windy weather. We saw live reindeers, trains, decorated Christmas cookies and ran around the grounds.
A huge thank you to all the Andrews who made this Thanksgiving possible. It was an amazing trip and we all hold so many cherished memories.
