On September 30th, we headed out to Papa's house for the weekend. Dad had given me a gift certificate for a photo session with a photographer in Nashville and we had an appointment with him that day at the Ellington Agricultural Center. We arrived a few minutes early for our session and I called the photographer to find out exactly where we were supposed to meet him. Imagine my surprise when he told me he was on his way to another session and he had no idea what I was talking about. Of course me, being the emotional one that I am, totally lost it at that point. I was sooooo upset because we had driven all the way to Nashville for this AND Darren and I had both taken the day off of work AND we had pulled Isaac out of school for the day too. I hung up the phone with him and was absolutely devastated. Then, Darren, being the amazing husband that he is, asked if he could talk to the guy on the phone. I gave him the number and he called him back and must have worked some sort of magic, but managed to get our session rescheduled for the very next day at 10:00am.
The next morning, we were up and ready and got back to the ag center right on time for our appointment. The whole session went amazingly well and the photographer kept apologizing for his mistake. All in all, it worked out great and I hope to use him again for another session next year. (If you saw one of our Christmas cards, all of those photos were from this session.)
After the session was finished, we headed back to Papa's to play awhile before heading out on our next venture. Isaac and Layla played and played in the yard and had a blast.

After going in and resting a bit, it was time to get ready and head to town for MTSU's homecoming game against Memphis. We were going a little early to tailgate some and then heading on to the game. Isaac had been to one game before, but this would be Layla's first.

Isaac and Layla did much better at the game that I had anticipated. Layla got a little antsy towards the end of the game and since MTSU wasn't doing too great anyway, we decided to head out and try and beat some of the traffic.
When we finally got back to Papa's, we were all zapped so we ended up crashing and going to bed fairly early.
The next morning, we played around and visited again before heading back to Savannah.
We had another great weekend with both Papa and Nana and can't wait to visit again soon!
