Country Music Association Festival

For the first time we went to the CMA festival in Nasvhille.  It was a blast.  We spent the whole Saturday downtown, weathering the 94 degree weather and humidity.  After many bottles of water, fans, misting stations and good food we had a blast.  There were many stages with country singers singing, a family zone with dogs jumping in water, ABC block party, the sports zone with these awesome new cars.  We got alot of free food and many t-shirts.  It was a good time, apparently it is a big thing here. People from all over the country come here to see it.
That night we had tickets to go to a concert in LP field where the Tennessee Titans play football.  It was alot of fun.  Josh Turner, Martina McBride, Trace Adkins, Little Big Town, Clint Black, Rascall Flatts, also Scotty and Lauren from American Idol performed too, and other upcoming artists played. It was such a good concert, the temperature dropped while we were there and I think Jason got sick unfortunately.  But, we enjoyed ourselves.

My Sister's Visit to Nashville

My sister Gabby came to visit us in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. She came with us when we drove back from Atlanta. It was fun to show her our apartment, Nashville, and just spend some time with her. We took a day trip to Nashville to show her the sites. For lunch we went to the Hard Rock Cafe here. She had this awesome drink with a fruit salad on the top side of the glass. We hit some of the shops on Broadway and we ate White Castle burgers, they were delicious. It was really good to spend some time with my little sister. Technically, she should be younger sister since she is taller than me now but she will always be my little sister. Love you lots Gabby.

Atlanta Trip

At the end of May, we took a mini weekend trip to Atlanta ON May 27th-May 29th. My step brother Sergi graduated from high school. We drove down to Georgia to spend some time with my dad and his family. It was fun, my little sister Gabby was down there too so I got to see her. It had been a year since we saw each other, so it was a good time.

We also got to spend some time with Jason's dad and his fiance. That Saturday we went to Six Flags White Water Park. It was a water park with a lot of water slides. I like water slides, but cannot ride roller coasters. I am a wimp, Gabby, Sergi, and Jason talked me into riding this ride called the Tornado. You sit in a inner tube for four people and ride down this tube which drops you drastically and then you swing back and forth in this tunnel. I was so terrified, I crouched down the whole time and screamed. It was so scary, but after I was amazed I did it and survived.
