Cumberland Riverwalk & Patti's visits

Clarksville has a beautiful river running through it, the Cumberland River. We went to the Riverwalk today. We ate at Wendy's next to the riverwalk. We also let the kids play on the playground.
 I always knew they were monkeys!
Even Jamie was playing. 
 They all liked this climbing tower. Although Jamie never would climb it.
 Enjoying their drinks from Wendy's.
 This was a neat little exhibit.
 The girls learning about the founding of Clarksville.
 Jessica & Daddy on the river walk.
 This is a riverside theater. 
 After spending the day in downtown Clarksville, we drove 1 1/2 hours to Patti's 1880s Settlement & restaurant. This was highly recommended to us.
 I usually don't take pictures of bathrooms but we were the only ones in there. Behind each of these doors is a bathroom stall.
 Another bathroom picture. Jessica thought this was so neat.
Sitting at our table waiting to order. 
 The kids loved the flower pot bread. David loved the house specialty - Strawberry butter.
 Our drinks were served in Mason jars!
This was my meal! It was their specialty, a 2 inch pork chop. It was delicious!! Well worth the 3 hour round trip to get it.

New Year's Eve weekend

We started our New Year's Eve on December 30th.
Here's Jamie & Ally with Mason.

Here's Maria, Jeff, Josh & my Jeff.

Here's rest of the gang: Tony, Alex, David, Michael, Monica (behind Jamie), Jamie & Mason.

Isn't Mason a cutie?!

Jamie, Jessica & Ally took a time out from the festivities to have a tea party.

It wouldn't be a party with Michael if we weren't counting change! ;-)

Mason didn't get to eat pizza with us but I think he enjoyed his babyfood more!

We spent some of our evening with my wonderful Hubby demoing different iPhone apps.

Ally & David are spending time with Showy on New Year's Eve.

We played RockBand 3! I got 100% singing Crazy Train. Jessica helped me sing.

Waiting for the countdown to 2012! Jamie, Ally, Josh, Showy, Tony & David with Jessica on the floor.

Welcome 2012!!

An early morning speedy clean up before bed.

Girls are speedily picking up too.

Jamie on the other hand was in slow motion!

The last pic of the weekend. On Jan 1, 2012 at Burger King.


We had an awesome weekend & always enjoy playing host to the Showalter's & the McNeil's!
