When we started to plan Nonna’s trip to Nashville, I was pretty sure (weather-permitting) it’d involve a trip to the zoo, to Cheekwood, to the fountains – pretty much anything we could do to be out in the sunshine, reserving indoor activities like a movie, the science center, or the library only if Mother Nature was PMSing.
The one exception that I was keeping under wraps was a Friday night “date,” just for the girls. When I saw the line-up for July 1 at the Grand Ole Opry, I jumped all over it. Darius Rucker (yes, Hootie himself!), the Jane Dear Girls, and more.
I hate to spend money, on anything, and I couldn’t quite bring myself to spring for the $60 tickets, but I got lucky with a pair of “cheap seats.” Check it out:
When Jim and I went to the Opry back in ‘08, we had floor seats, and they were great, but I wanted to see how things would look from the balcony. I know it’s further away from the stage, but I think we’ll have a good view of the whole house….and I think we got pretty lucky with the aisle seats up in the front.
So! That’s what’s on the Momma-and-Nonna agenda to kick off our holiday weekend!
What’s on your calendar to jump start your long Independence Day weekend?
