Colby here! We are working on a new record in our family. For the first time in a very long time, we have all been together more than 3 days in a row. Summer is over and dad has had some time off and well…mom and I are loving having him. It’s not like we didn’t get to see him over the summer, but spending some “down time” together these past few days has been great! We were able to throw a quick little road trip into said “down time”,
Early Monday morning we loaded up the car and went to Nashville for Send 2015. It was a conference put on by the SBC. We were able to stay in an awesome hotel! (Check out my view in the picture above. This picture makes my moms stomach flip each time she sees it.)
Lolli & Pops came to Nashville too! I was able to spend the days with Lolli…
She’s pretty great.
While Lolli and I explored Nashville, Dad & Mom went to several sessions, concerts, and other things. Okay, honestly I don’t really know what all they did. But they were happy!
Tuesday afternoon my lunch date was interrupted with Lolli, when my Dad and Mom happened to be in the same restaurant we had chosen to go to for lunch! They were catching up with their friends Matt & Kortnea who they had not seen since before I was born! That’s a long time people.
Matt & Kortnea do not live in America anymore, so my parents enjoyed talking everything international with them. They seemed pretty excited when they were talking to them too. Maybe one day we can go visit them at their house around the world. Or maybe Dad & Mom can go and I can get some more time with my grandparents…
On the car ride home my mom and dad talked a lot…
Mom kept talking about some ladies named Angie Smith & Jennie Allen and the IF: Gathering. She was able to listen to them during a breakout session. I think that was probably one of her favorite things.
They also talked a lot about church, teaching me about Jesus, presidents, and many other things. I confess, I fell asleep and missed a lot of it on the drive home. But, I think it’s safe to say they loved Send 2015!
We’ve now been home together for a little over a day and all of a sudden mom needed to go to the grocery store…alone. What’s up with that? It was all good though, it gave me and dad some guy time. We need that you know. Especially with a baby sister on the way.
Today is the last full day of dad having some time at home so naps, t.v., and chicken-pot-pie are on the agenda for the rest of the day. It’s been a good break from the norm…a good good break.
