We are taking full advantage of Gram and her willingness to bond with Ben. (She of course loves every minute of staying home with him.) Melissa has one extra seat in her minivan which always comes in handy on these trips. It is my biggest regret when it comes to my car. We loaded up her car and headed to Tennessee for the day. Our first stop was the Drive Through Safari Park. My boys have been years ago with Granny and Pop, but I don’t think they even remember. Regardless we decided it would be a good adventure for the day and something new compared to last summer. We also promised them awesome milkshakes afterwards.
The Grind is a restaurant found in Martin, TN that is well known for its milkshakes! Today was the prefect excuse to stop in and try a few! We were warmly greeted by the staff and each child was found a small gaming console (Thank you!). The milk shakes definitely take while to make, but they are true creations. Mine was delicious! The boys finished theirs and Kaitlyn had three bites (which is typical for her). I can’t wait to tell Wade about this place and I wish he could still have traditional milkshakes. He would have loved to try one.
