Nashville, Tennessee

Our drive to Nashville was longer so we just headed to our hotel for the evening after dinner. The next day we got up and headed into the heart of town.
We couldn't see the Grand Ol' Opry because the museum part was closed due to a flood.
 So we decided to just walk around and see what we could see. The boys were enamored with these life size figures outside of the businesses along the main streets.

A bit hit were the Elvis ones. Could it be that not just a couple weeks ago they had been introduced to Elvis in a big way??

It was so quiet when we first got there. We must have beat the crowds. It was so much more crowded when we left.

After walking around for a bit we got a call saying some of our friends from Illinois were in town.  Matt and Anne with their adorable little girl, Rilyn.

We had matched up our dates ahead of time. It was so great to see them again!

 After lunch at Hard Rock we headed to the Frist Center for the Visual Arts.

This was such an awesome museum! Their entire upper story has art experiences for kids!

They did water color, block arranging, transfer printing, sketching... and more! After a completely enriching experience at this museum, we headed back on the road toward North Carolina. It would be our last stop before reaching home.
