Annual Jacobs and Mudgett visit!

Last weekend Leslie’s aunt Shelley, uncle John and friends Kellie and Scott came to visit us (as in, John and Annie and Joan and me and Leslie) in Nashville. Their trip to Nashville is turning into a yearly tradition (we’re working on bi-annual), and we love to see them here since we haven’t been able to go visit them in Cali lately.

El fin de semana pasado los tios de Leslie, Shelley y John, y amigos Kellie y Scott vinieron a visitarnos en Nashville. Su viaje a Nashville se esta tornando en una tradicion (estamos intentando que sea 2 veces al ano), y nos encanta verlos aqui ya que no hemos podido is a visitarlos en California ultimamente.

They come here to forget about the world and enjoy good music, food, drinks, and…more music!! When they are here they go all out…. they are wild! They hit the bars downtown every day, have some late night meal at Waffle House and listen to as much live music as they can. John, Shelley and Kellie came out to Nashville for the first time for our wedding and had so much fun on Broadway that they have made it a point to spend most of their time chasing the good music around town when they come, and of course it isn’t hard to find great music here.

Ellos vienen aqui para olvidarse del mundo y disfrutar de buena musica, comida, bebidas, y….mas musica!! Cuando estan aqui tiran la casa por la ventana….se vuelven locos! Van al centro de la ciudad a los bares todos los dias, comen en Waffle House a altas horas de la noche y escuchan la mayor cantidad de musica en vivo posible. John, Shelley y Kellie vinieron por primera vez a Nashville para nuestro matrimonio y lo pasaron tan bien en Broadway que todas las veces que vienen pasan el tiempo persiguiendo musicos en la ciudad, y lo bueno es que no es dificil encontrarlos.

This time we couldnt join them in their shenanigans, but we did have the pleasure to have them over for lunch and enjoy some front porch sitting for a few minutes. This was their first time seeing our house and meeting our dogs, so we were excited to host them and talk about our mansion, the changes we have made, and introduce them to our beasts.

Esta vez no pudimos unirnos a sus locuras, pero si tuvimos el placer de invitarlos a almorzar en nuestra casa y disfrutar un rato sentados en el porch. Esta fue la primera vez que veian nuestra casa y conocian a Chupete y Choripan, asi que estabamos felices de tenerlos en casa y hablar sobre las mejoras que hemos hecho y presentarles a las bestias.

We joined them for dinner at Leslie’s parents house on Sunday night and Annie prepared (yet another) an amazing dinner. We got to spend a couple more hours with them listening to their crazy stories about staying out til 3 on Broadway and then Waffle House the night before, which by the way, was 6 hours later than when Leslie and I went to sleep. We are so lame…

Los vimos nuevamente para cenar en casa de los papas de Leslie el Domingo en la noche y Annie (otra vez) prepare una cena deliciosa. Pasamos un par de horas mas escuchando sus historias sobre salir hasta tarde y comer en Waffle house, que a todo esto, fue 6 horas despues que nosotros nos fuimos a dormir. Somos muy fomes……

We love to have family over (and friends) and we wished more of our family lived closer to us. We really appreciate the time we all get to spend together, which is why (ahem ahem!) we are hoping they can make this trip twice a year!

Nos encanta tener familiares (y amigos) en casa y nos gustaria que mas familiares vivieran cerca de nosotros. En verdad apreciamos el tiempo que podemos pasar juntos, por lo cula (hm hm hm!) esperamos que puedan hacer este viaje dos veces al ano!

  1. Incredible visit. What a great time! Loved every minute. Especially the Waffle House at 2:00 a.m. Sat. night – listening to George Jones and chowing down on eggs, sausage, hash browns, and a pecan waffle.
