The Vlachs Take Nashville

We had a wonderful visit with Rob's parents, grandma and sister this weekend in Nashville! On Friday, we had fun showing them our house and neighborhood. Then we went to the charming downtown Franklin (five minutes away) to window shop and had dinner at Puckett's, a "Meat-and-Three" restaurant (a Southern concept where Mac-n-Cheese counts as a vegetable -- heaven!) -- we were lucky enough to listen to the band warm up. That night we had a belated birthday party for Nicki and Tom, and sat around the fire pit making smores.

On Saturday, we drove to downtown Nashville and went inside the Cat Financial office where Rob works, then had lunch at the well-known Jack's Bar-B-Que in Nashville's "district." That night we had a pizza party at home -- Rob rolled the dough and everyone made their own pie. Sunday was a working day -- with everyone pitching in, we were able to clear most of our garage of boxes (quite an undertaking since it was filled with our entire Peoria basement and attic!). Thank you so much for traveling all that way to see us!
