We went to the greatest city on Earth (aka Nashville) for the Music City Bowl on the weekend of New Years. Its rather hard to imagine that two years ago was the last time we visited Nashville. It was our little baby moon if you want to call it.
We have yet to come back to Nashville due to having a child and a 6 hr drive helped as well to keep us away. For anyone who did not know we lived in Nashville for 2 years and loved it but decided to move back to be closer to our family.
We made our first pit stop in Starkville (the home of MSU) to pick up a new shirt for the game. Morgan just wanted to run around and play with the cups in the store.
We started our trip up to Nashville on a Thursday night and made a pit stop in Alabama to see Chads grandmother (who is home now!). We went to see her up at the rehabilitation clinic and she got to sit on his grandmothers lap all the way to her room. Such a sweet, sweet picture!
At the rehabilitation clinic they had some little birds that Morgan was mesmerized by and her wonderful cousin Collin held her up to see them. He would put her down and she would run back over and start making the “ugh ugh put me up” sounds. Of course he couldn’t turn her down.
Morgan got a kitchen and of course Makayla wanted to help her unwrap it. She is so excited about her kitchen.
The next day we made our way up to Nashville early so that we could make it up to the pep rally that was downtown. She did take a great 2 hr nap which lasted most of the trip (only 3 hrs from Alabama)
We of course had to play with Violet on our trip to Nashville. She loves Violet especially when Violet plays if you are happy and you know it.
Morgan was not a happy camper about it since she had just woken up from a nap.
Sitting on daddys shoulders did help to cheer her up just a little bit. She could then see everything that was going on and maybe even a cheer or two.
My Parents met us in Nashville and went to the game with us along with my brothers. Of course Morgan wanted to hold grandma and grandpas hand to walk down the busy street.
Before the game we went to Old Spaghetti Factory which has awesome food and pretty good prices as well.
Grandpa got to feed her some of the minestrone soup. I was shocked that she ate it but she loved it and ate grandpa and half of Chads bowl of it.
Heading over to the game, we had to walk across the pedestrian bridge. There are no cars allowed on the bridge only people. Its an awesome view for sure. Morgan was decked out and daddy did the job of carrying her across.
our view from the game. We were pretty high up and had to walk a lot of ramps to get up here. I was convinced that if I did this every day I would be in really good shape.
Morgan excited about some silly thing-she was giggling away.
I must admit that I love this picture of us-she was all snuggled against mommy at this point. One picture that I wont ever forget!
Mom where did you take me?!
Then we played the paci game
She crashed out about half time and slept in mommy’s arms which made it a lot easier for sure. Until halftime, my mom and I walked her around the stadium and occasionally she would sit still. She woke up with just a few minutes to go in the 4th quarter and this was her reaction of course-can you please not take my picture grandma?! Really Im trying to sleep here.
She wanted Grandpa to hold her. I think it was because he had the entire row to himself (the joys of sitting up so high)
Grandma got to hold her and she ended up falling back asleep for a few minutes until she heard all the MSU fans of course 🙂
Stay tuned for the rest of the Nashville trip which includes our trip to our old neighborhood, ICE, Gaylord hotel
I finally got rid of the Christmas theme and have a new blog design.
