On the road again...

this time to Nashvegas, aka Nashville, TN. We spent last weekend in Nashville to go to the SEC gymnastics championship, go to McKay's (great used bookstore) and just to get away from the craziness we call life. Here we are at the riverfront across from the Titans stadium

The famous Earnest Tubbs record shop

On trips, I always make a point to search out any scrapbook stores wherever we may be and in return we have to do something for David so.....since he is really into civil war stuff and photography we spent a good deal of time doing stuff he likes too.
We started our trip early Friday morning to be able to stop all the places we wanted....
1st stop-Lynchburg, TN home of the Jack Daniels Brewery and best of all FREE
We had the best tour guide and learned alot about the whiskey process and that some people will actually pay up to $9000 to have their own barrel of whiskey delivered to their door.

2nd stop-Stones River Battleground, this is the most endangered civil war sight due to all the traffic and urban growth around it, as you walked thru it you could picture the soldier hiding within the rock formations.

Saturday we headed off to Cheekwood Botanical Gardens because it was FREE(this was a BUDGET conscious trip) also along with half the population of Nashville . I think we were about 2 weeks early though cause most things hadn't bloomed out yet. After a quick trip north to visit a scrapbook store :) (and we saw a kitty that looked like Kit Kat too) we headed downtown to the Sommet (pronounced Somay) Center for the gymnastics and it was great seeing all those athletes perform and yea to Bama for beating Georgia to win the championship.
