We are especially thank you to the friends and family who offered to host us along our trip. We were fortunate enough to get to stay with friends and family from Missouri to Tennessee. Thank you to Auntie Debbie and her clan for hosting us in Springfield, MO. We also enjoyed the culinary delights of Springfield with this crew.

Thank you to Sarah, Jeff, Jessica, Rebecca, Eli and Jackson for welcoming us in Memphis, TN. And also thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Lazarus for inviting us to join them for a home-cooked Shabbat dinner. What an absolute treat! Here’s a pic of the adorable youngsters:

And a HUGE thank you to our friends, fellow photographers Mel and Sean McLellan of McLellan Studios, for hosting us in Nashville. Mel and Sean were so welcoming. They not only enthusiastically invited us into their home, but took the day off to give us a full tour of the Nashville hotspots, including the Parthenon and the Opryland Hotel. And what visit wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Bass Pro Shops?!
