Members of the First State Covette Club recently cooked breakfast for guests at the Ronald McDonald House in Wilmington, Delaware. As the newly appointed Public Relations Officer, I wanted to do something to make our visit more personal. I also wanted to get out of cooking! So, I ordered hats with racing flags and firery flames and some little bendable race car figures to give to the kids. The kids loved the hats and I really enjoyed my visit with each family. With all that these families are going through none of them let it get them down. They remind us all that we have so much to be thankful for.
While most hikers choose to walk with a stick, my adventurous daughter, Jenna takes along a hoop! It’s a great way to stay in shape. Hope you enjoy the pictures. I did.

Ramblin’ Breeze Valley, Fresh Air & Old Fashioned Fun!
When your ready to “get out of town”, head for a Cowboy Town. Located just 10 minutes from downtown Nashville, A Cowboy Town offers horseback riding, canoeing, camping, hiking, a live comedy show and bonfire with catered dinner.
It doesn’t matter where I travel too, I always look for a place to ride horses. I especially enjoy mountain rides because everything in Delaware is flat and I enjoy a challenge. My trusty mount, Easter took me on a pleasant ride through rolling hills. After the ride we freshened up for the evenings entertainment.
Joined by some cousins from Georgia, Sammy and Dawn, we took our seats under the pavillion and waited for the show to begin. This live comedy act is complete with blue grass band and live horse action. It’s good to see adults having good clean fun while doing something they love. It ain’t broadway but, very enjoyable. The performance is followed by a catered dinner complete with bonfire. Make sure you get your dessert early, or you won’t get any. It’s that good!
If your headed for Nashville, Tennessee, make sure you put A Cowboy Town on your list of things to do, www.acowboytown.com. Did you visit? Leave a comment!

Fall, changing colors and cooler nights, a great time to get away. After a long hot summer, Terry and I are ready to get away for a few days. I love Tennessee. Normally we head to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge area but, this year we head for the untraveled territory of Nashville.
Nashville, the city of country stars and honky talk bars. I can’t wait to explore all that the city has to offer while doing a little bit of research too. I spend my first morning doing a little market research. I love the country fashion, flowing dresses and cowgirl boots, flashy belts and stylish hats. I don’t do a lot of shopping but, today I feel like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. Everytime I left a store I had a bag in each hand. It was great. Being a performer it’s hard to find cloths but, the selection here was impressive.
During our visit we went horseback riding at A Cowboy Town, then attended a cowboy production followed by a catered dinner and bon fire. We stopped for a drink at the Wild Horse Saloon and took a carriage ride to see the city lights. We took a dinner cruise on the General Jackson and enjoyed a fantastic Vegas style show. If you’ve never been to Nashville, I highly recommend a trip. Read on for more information about the great places we visited. Did you visit? Leave a comment!
