A Grand Opening!

Thursday May 1 Upscale Pizza opened its doors to the public and boy did we have a grand time!! David had spent Tuesday and Wednesday evening at the store so I was anxious to get to see the progress that had been made in time for it to open up. The kids and I headed over to the grand opening/ribbon cutting ceremony around 9:30. At 9:20 the parking lot was already full and I had to park at the cleaners near by. This is a good sign for business!! The ceremony began with Billy Thompson (fellow dwarf guy) introducing some people and then Dr. Charles Carter (Truett's long time pastor) gave a brief devotion and opened us in prayer. Truett wanted to be sure to honor the National Day of Prayer and Dr. Carter did a remarkable job as always! Truett spoke and introduced some of his family. We heard some words from the operator Tim Bannister and then they cut the ribbon and took the traditional "first bite." We had a great time seeing our CFA family and friends and of course eating!! The food was fabulous!! Most of you know I have been craving pizza this pregnancy..... my husband is very concerned now that we have a pizza joint just a few minutes away!! The pizza is great and the hot dogs taste like a hot dog from the varsity!! I am telling you - You must try it out!!! The atmosphere is great and totally family friendly of course! Enjoy the pics!
