We love spontaneity!

A couple months ago, our friend Rich from my hometown called us up saying he had taken a spontaneous road trip on his motorcycle and ended up in TN. Thankfully we weren't out of town, and he arrived at our doorstep the following day. How great is that? Being surprised with a visit from a good friend you haven't seen in way too long is always sweet.

Owen, curious about Rich, just stared at him at first. My theory is that he was trying to figure out if that was a small cat growing off this man's chin :) Once he got past the mystery that is Rich's beard, he really enjoyed his time with him! We went downtown to the Mellow Mushroom for some of the best pizza, and the guys tested some type of German beer...I have no idea, i just go for the eats...although I do use one of their bottles as a flower vase now. (If you read this blog with any type of regularity, you might have noticed that when anyone visits, we take 'em to the Mellow M. Have too. It's that good.) Afterward we strolled through Coolidge Park by the carousel and the river.

Rich took off for Nashville the next day to visit more friends. (He seems to have friends everywhere!) Although we wished it could have been a longer visit, it was wonderful catching up. Let it be known that we love when friends drop by unexpectedly!
Thanks for coming to see us Rich!

What is that on your chin there, mister? Can I pet it?
