Another busy month for us as we wind down a fun Summer of 2014
|Did we mention it was luxurious? Ashlee claims this is the greatest bathtub she's ever soaked in.|
Friday, August 22 - We had dinner at Watermark Restaurant tonight to take advantage of some good pricing for Nashville Restaurant Week. Our friends, Danny and Brenda, joined us and we had a fancy and delicious three-course dinner for 30 buck each. We decided to go see Guardians of the Galaxy in IMAX after dinner. All of us but Ashlee had seen it before. In fact, it was the 3rd time for me and Brenda. It's not exactly Ashlee's preferred type of flick, but she was a good sport and wound up enjoying it actually.
We spent the afternoon cooling off from the high temps at Nashville Shores Water Park. This was my first time there, but Ashlee's been a few times this summer and even got a season pass because she likes it so much. We had a ball riding all the big water slides and lazing about in their Lazy River. What a great place right in our own backyard.
Sunday, August 24 - We stole the term "Sunday, Funday" from a hilarious new TV sit-com called "You're the Worst" and applied it to a full day out and about doing pretty much nothing of any real value other than...you guessed it...having fun. We started with brunch at M.L, Rose's in downtown Nashville. We then moseyed south to where we had a bottle of wine on the covered porch with a nice breeze at Arrington Vineyards. Next, it was a drink at the now-TV-(in)famous dive bar over in Murfreesboro, MT Bottles and Cans. We had an early dinner at O'Possums Irish Pub in Murfreesboro with our friend, Emily. The food was excellent. We finished up with a drink at the rather underwhelming Brew U also in Murfreesboro. Overall, a very good Sunday, Funday!
