Happy 32nd Birthday, Rob!

We had so much fun celebrating Rob's 32nd birthday! And this guy seriously deserves to be celebrated -- he's an amazing, devoted, thoughtful, hardworking and selfless husband and dad. So this year, lots of people chipped in to make his birthday super special!

On Friday night, my dad and Ning sponsored a relaxed pizza party with our friends the Vaneks and the Tepners, as well as their children, and my sister, Andi (who was in on the big weekend plans from the beginning).

The next day, Andrea gave Rob the greatest birthday present ever! She watched Madeline and Charlie while I took Rob away for a fun birthday in downtown Nashville. We stayed in the stylish Hotel Indigo just a couple of blocks from all the Music Row action. After a hilarious but failed attempt at eating spicy fried chicken at a popular joint on the other side of town, we decided to do something we've never done before and be tourists in our own town, taking cheesy pictures and acting like a couple of kids. People kept asking us where we were from, as we posed in front of the Hard Rock Cafe, General Jackson's Showboat, and giant cowboy boots along the famous Broadway Street. What started as a post-lunch beer at Nashville's Yazoo Brewery turned into a bar crawl, which naturally made our touristy pictures even more hilarious to us. We ate fried catfish and oysters for dinner and listened to live music. The next morning, we ate at Pancake Pantry, a Nashville classic that always has a line outside the doors, winding around the street.

Back on the home front, Andi had a blast with the kids! It was so fun to see them all again on Sunday! Andi had them bathed, dressed and happy when we walked in the door.
