For one, "they have" Daddy. AKA Mr. Rip Ray, husband and father extraordinaire. He had been living in a corporate apartment since June while we were back in Texas. The kiddos were missing him so much by the time we arrived in Nashville, they were literally hanging over the balcony rail, waiting for him to come home from work.
"They" also have the Tennessee Titans! And because Rip's Aunt Sharon is Jeff Fisher's assistant, the boys got to go to training camp and play around with the players and their kids on the practice field. Fun stuff!
At the end of our week in Nashville, we were a little sad to leave Rip, but we had a plan: one week in Indiana visiting my parents, a few days in St. Louis to see our friends The Whites, then BACK to Nashville for a long weekend before heading back to Texas in time for Mason to start Kindergarten. Oh, how I love a good plan!
