After that we walked to TGI Fridays. You don't drive downtown.. You have to pay to park, so we weren't about to pay again. We just put Grace in her stroller and walked over there. Normally we don't go to restaurants anymore because Grace is a nightmare.. She wants to get up the whole time, but Grace was so warn out that I rocked her to sleep before the food came. I laid her in her stroller and Chris and I got to eat and talk. It was really nice.. like a date sort of. Since she was still asleep when we got done we decided to walk to the other side of downtown to Coolidge Park. You have to cross the Tennessee River to get there. We were about half way across the bridge when Grace woke up. She was a little disoriented because of all the loud cars whizzing by, but she stayed in her stroller. She stayed in until we actually got into the park. Then we let her out to walk around. She LOVED having free roam of the park. We took her to the place we call "our spot" in the park. Chris and I used to basically live in Coolidge Park. It was the first place we went on a date, and we have a spot we used to go sit and talk about anything and everything. It's right next to the water. Chris gave Grace some rocks and they were throwing them in the water.
After that we took Grace for a ride on the carousel. She liked it last time, but she was kind of scared of it this time. It was going really fast, and the operator said he had it turned up as fast as it would go (which I'm not really sure why he did because besides Grace there was only one other kid, and it was about Grace's age too.. not really looking for a fast ride).
Then we walked back across another bridge that is actually only for walking or bike riding. No cars allowed. On the bridge there were these two girls and they had this massive dog! It was Malimute.. very pretty though! And so sweet. Grace LOVES dogs, and it was letting her pet it and feed it. We used to have a Husky before Grace was born. Chris rescued it and gave it to me, but it either ran away or my ex-step-dad did away with it. We really think it was my ex-step-dad though. Notice I said EX.. I really can't stand him, and now neither can my mom. She was such a good dog though. Her name was Chanel, and she was so beautiful and prissy. She would lay down and cross her paws every time.. anyway I am getting off topic lol.
We just got home a few minutes ago, and I couldn't wait to post. Now for pictures :)
