Summer Vacation Day 4

This morning we decided to attend Two Rivers Baptist Fellowship. The church was only a mile from our hotel and recommended by a friend at Dawson. I was not sure I wanted to put the boys in their nursery and told Preston Saturday night that I don't want our kids in the nursery at a church where we don't know anyone. I decided Sunday morning that they would be happier in the nursery and we would be able to focus more on worship in the nursery. I still figured Logan would do Big Church but as we were getting ready he said he wanted to go to Kids Worship. We told him he would not know anyone but he said it was okay and that he would just ask their name. We pulled up to the church and as we were getting out of our car we saw John Bryant, a friend from Dawson. It turns out his brother-in-law is one of the pastors at the church. We sat together with the Bryant family and all three of our kids did really great in the nursery.
Next we were off to the Pancake Pantry. We saw on Urban Spoon that it was the number one place to eat. In the write up it warns you that the line will be outside the door, and it was. We went ahead and started feeding Nathan and Owen while we were in line and Logan struck up an instant conversation with three college girls. After we were in line about 20 minutes the couple in front of us told us to get in front of them because we were approaching the shaded part of the building and we could get out 3 kids out of the sun. We started taking with them and it turns out they happen to be from Birmingham and their kids go to Westminster. We did not get a chance to meet their kids because they were here on an anniversary trip and the kids were back in Birmingham. We decided to just all have lunch together. It was great meeting another Westminster family and we had the best time all eating together. Oh yes, the Pancake Pantry's pancakes really are incredible.
We then left and headed to Belle Meade Plantation. It was very interesting seeing the grounds of an old beautiful southern mansion.
We then headed back to the hotel and went swimming for a while. Logan is really enjoying swimming. Tonight he let Preston hold him and was practicing swimming. He is coming a long way. Nathan and Owen really enjoyed the water too and were kicking their feet a lot trying to make their floats go. Since all three boys had so much fun we will definitely be joining a pool this summer.
