Goodbye Nashville

Well, three months have passed since we returned to US soil.  That means that our time in Nashville has come to an end.  It was a good time, a whirlwind of events and friends and family, and now we're moving on to two months in Phoenix (via St. Louis, Kansas City, Springfield, and Albuquerque).  Here are a few highlights from our last month in Nashville:

Eric's sister Sami ran the Viva la Diva 5K in Cool Springs.  We went to cheer her on and someone loaned Maggie a cowbell.   She enjoyed the noise immensely.

 Viva la Sami!
 Bapa celebrated his birthday while we we there, starting with breakfast in bed (a potty training Maggie had already taken off her jammies that morning)
 And blowing out the candles...more successful than her own 2nd birthday...
 Ben got to meet his Great-Papa and Great-Grammy.
 Great Grammy reading to her oldest great-grandchild, Maggie (and Ben)
