The boys and I had one last hurrah before school started. We drove to Annapolis, MD to visit their besties. I am not a power driver like Warren, so I planned to take it slow. Also I hate driving at night.
Our first day on the road, we stopped in Nashville to have lunch at the Pharmacy. It's yummy burgers, fries and homemade sodas. They also have the most amazing patio ever. It seriously goes on for days. However due to the fact that we arrived during the lunch rush, we took the first available and ended up sitting inside.
Satchel was pretty grumpy about lunch and the trip in general, but thankfully cheered up by the time we got to Knoxville. We got there around 4pm and probably could have kept going, but we decided to get a nice hotel room and enjoy the city.
We were right by Market Square so we took a stroll and found a Satchel approved dinner spot, Soccer Taco.
I thought the food was just okay, but the boys loved the soccer theme and talked about Fifa players throughout the meal.
We did some exploring and window shopping and then went to see the new "Vacation" movie. It was so inappropriate, but super funny.
The next leg of our trip was only four hours, so we slept in, had lunch in the square, and then went to meet the world's sweetest baby.
We arrived in Blacksburg at Hope's house just in time for dinner.
The restaurant had a special where you could flip a coin and win a pizza. Jiro won!
After dinner we did some strolling and hit the health food store for snacks.
Back at Hope's, the boys chilled while we sat in the backyard and chatted. Then we all watched a movie until we fell asleep.
We were eager to hit the road on Friday so we could possibly avoid DC traffic. That plan failed, but we made it in one piece and I have a new found understanding of what traffic actually is!
The boys were so excited to see each other and picked up right where they left off. More to come!
