The Birthday Trip

We had a great time celebrating Vince's birthday this year! The weekend before, my sister and Mom were here for a visit and we got to go out for a delicious steak dinner.

Then at Vince's request, we got out-of-town for a couple of days for some family time. We decided to head up to Nashville. It was a great get-away! We got a hotel with an indoor pool so we could take the kiddos swimming (they LOVE the water).

Vince requested Hard Rock Cafe for his birthday dinner and we were happy to comply. The kiddos even got some *free* HRC guitar pins for their jean jackets (due to a burger debacle)--they look so cute!

The next morning we took the kiddos to the Adventure Science Center--an interactive children's museum. We all had a great time!

The weather was the weirdest thing about our trip--it was in the 70's when we left town and in the 30's by the time we got back home. Ya gotta love the South in the springtime!
