A Nashville Saturday

Saturday was a beautiful day to play in Nashville!

Our friends Heather and Shannon came in from Memphis to play. Justin and his sister, Janae were also in town. Yea for good people! After figuring out what in the world we should do (apparently Nashville was packed with people who booked up all the places on the General Jackson and the Duck Tours!), we ended up deciding to go to Cheekwood.

It had been many a moon since my last visit to Cheekwood. I was highly impressed with the Japanese garden and the art museum in the main house. Red Grooms, one of my favorite (and local!) artists had many works on display. We walked around the sculpture wilderness trail too. That was a tad disappointing. Overall, a delightful experience and great Nashville thing to do!

A beautiful day is not complete unless there is an ice cream run! We went to our East Nashville favorite, The Pied Piper. The Pied Piper is a local homemade ice cream place that specializes in different flavors. Red Velvet Cake, Tomato Carrot (much, much, much better than it sounds!) , and Dark Chocolate with Cinnamon and Cayenne pepper just to name a few. I settled on a cone of Guiness and was quite content. :)

Another great Saturday in Nashville!

  1. So glad to see your update. That does sound like a good day! All except the Tomato-Carrot Ice Cream. It has to taste better than it sounds. Ugh! Glad you enjoyed. Love you & love your scooter. Looks fun!
