Memorial Weekend in Nashville

How many cities in the U.S. rhyme with Asheville? If anyone can find me one other than Nashville, I will send them a prize. Why? Because Mark, Shelby, Scott, Ryan and I need another city to go to for Memorial Day Weekend 2009.

You see, last year we went to Asheville.

This year, we went to Nashville. See the pattern?

Here are some highlights. Friday evening we met Mark and Shelby there, went to the Wildhorse Saloon downtown (where Richard Marx was doing a sound check for his show that evening...pretty cool).

Then we wandered through the Opryland Hotel.

Where's Ryan?

There he is!

Saturday, we did not stand in line at Pancake Pantry (one of these days), but had a fabulous breakfast at Noshville's (PP must be really good, because I cannot imagine something better than Noshville's!). We explored bicentennial park and centennial park, home of the Parthenon.

We took a few funny pictures there.

Saturday afternoon and evening we walked through Franklin, where we met Shelby's aunt and uncle for dinner at the Mellow Mushroom and dessert at Ben & Jerry's. Someone loves his chocolate ice cream!

Sunday we toured the Country Music Hall of Fame where we saw a banjo demonstration. The singer was hilarious!

Before dinner we went in search of a park Scott had seen on one of his previous trips to Nashville. After a few wrong turns, we found it!

Two other funny photos from the weekend. The first just happened, it really was not planned the way it looks. The second, Shelby and I did not know about until it was uploaded to the computer. Funny boys!

What did they do, set the timer and then "pose" for the camera or did they ask someone to take that last pic, too funny.
