Memorial Day weekend with The Cieteks

Bob and Bernice came down to see us Memorial Day weekend. We had a blast. We picked them up from the airport and the festivities began. We started out with a trip to the grocery to get a few supplies so Bernice could make her FABULOUS pizza. It is not branded but it should be....I just love her pizza so I made sure she made plenty. Friday night we joined Breagal and his parents atPuckett's Grocery in Franklin for Dinner and music. They had a great blues band and of course good ole southern meat and three menu. The New Yorkers and Chicagoans were certainly testing their palates but I think it was a hit!

Each morning Moss was greeted bright and early by Bernice with a fabulous workout. She is missing Bernice and her daily runs. I suggested to Bob that it wouldn't hurt my feelings if he wanted to step in and keep it going....hasn't really worked out that way. Saturday we ventured out into the real country to see if we could find a German Shepard puppy. We visited a kennel but were not impressed...we came home and took a nap before we hit the honky tonk nightlife of Nashville. We walked down Broadway and 2nd Avenue that was filled with cowboys, bachelorette parties, and the usual townies playing their songs and guitar cases opened for tips. We ended up at the Wildhorse Saloon and loved watching the line dancers. We polished the evening off with a nice large ice cream cone...okay...just me but I thought it is 12:00am and I am downtown Nashville...bring on the ice cream:)

Sunday I had to work so Bob and his parents went to the Country Music Hall of Fame. They loved it and got to see Elvis' recording studio and a ton of memorabilia. I met up with them at the end of the day for Dinner.

Monday morning we drove over to Loveless Cafe for brunch and it was amazing as usual. Even though it's usually a 3 hour deal, it is always worth it! Fried chicken, country ham, hashbrown casserole, and the those biscuits. They really liked and of course can't get this food anywhere in upstate New York. Bernice and I got our nails done before they had to head to the airport for their flight back home.

We loved their company and wished we could see them more often. Come back soon!
