Nashville with the Girls of 3602!

Through life you find your way into different groups of friends... Well this weekend belonged to the girls of 3602! These are my roommates from my semester off college when I worked for Walt Disney World in 2001! These girls hold a special place in my heart and my life so getting to see them all again was nothing short of FANTASTIC!

When we all left Disney we made a pact to meet up every year well life happened and the last time we all had gotten together was in 2004! WAY TOO LONG!

A lot has changed since 2004 when we all got together; we were all still living the 20 something lifestyle of clubbing and shopping and had the "living life for me" mentality... So this time was very different...

We have 2 new additions to the group with Maggie and Olivia who are actually just a few months apart in age. And we are expecting a new addition in August the first boy! Samuel I can't wait to meet ya!

Our weekend started with a drive down on Friday. Ida drove down from Minnesota to our place early friday and we left Noblesville around 2 ish... It was great to have the time with her, she is a great companion on road trips! I have to say Kentucky is Paaaaaaaariiiiiiittttttyyy!!! If given the chance I would love to explore Louisville in the future! Anyway by the time we got into Nashville we were all pretty spent so we passed on meeting the rest of the group for dinner... So we didn't start are visit with the whole gang until Saturday.

In lieu of a bunch of site seeing we all celebrated the coming of Samuel and got to be a part of throwing Kate a baby shower! Which meant we got to go shopping!! The baby shower was a surprise for Kate, so Barb headed over to hang out with Kate while we shopped, and then we went to Kate's apartment to hang out with her until it was time to head out for the shower errrr "lunch" which really was lunch but it also was a baby shower at this brewery!

After the shower we walked the shops in this area of Nashville! They were very cute shops... except for the Hoarder shop (kitchen gadget/tea shop gone wrong) there were piles of tea and stuff everywhere... no organization to it... just stuff not pretty...

But here is a shot of Maggie trying on a cut hair clip/hat thingy
We stopped at an icecream shop and it turns out they have a baby special "two for tuesdays" We actually didn't notice the sign until after we downloaded all the pics! Priceless!

Winding down at the hotel, Maggie eats a rice rusk and plays with Mommy's hat!

Sunday we had breakfast at Kate and Jason's it was delicious! Waffles and Omelots!! Yum! Oh and Mimosa's which I didn't take a part in.

Jessica and her daughter O!
Maggie discovered a yellow ball
That afternoon we went and saw the Grand Ole Opry resort.. it was a very beautiful Mall/Hotel...

On our return trip we took on an extra passenger Jezabel who is now Ida's cat! Jason and Kate decided to give her to Ida since they were expecting a baby and didn't want the cat in the mix. She was a great rider, didn't make a peep the entire trip to Indy! Now I hear there was some issues once she was in Minnesota but they got handled!

What a great trip.... I can't wait for the next one!
