When we first got there, after our trip taking two extra hours because of being stuck in traffic, we went and visited with the people who promote Dad’s music on the radio. After that, we checked in at our hotel, then we went to a mall that used to be a theme park (I think this is correct info! I heard so much new stuff that week, I might be mixing it up a bit). It was really cool, complete with a restaurant with aquariums, (hence the first two pictures) and that kind of amazing stuff. We ate at the mall in a place called Claim Jumper, which served me the biggest hamburger I have ever had. It was delicious.
Then we went to the Gaylord Hotel to look around. Several years back, Mr. Ham had posted a picture on his blog that had been taken in the hotel, when he was visiting the area with my parents. I had wished so badly that I could be there with them, it looked amazing. And now I was finally getting a chance to be there! For all y’all who don’t know, it’s this huge, huge indoor area that has gardens, waterfalls, stores and all sorts of amazing stuff like that. It even has a ‘river’ that goes through it and you can take boat rides. All inside! Crazy, right?
So, that’s a quick glimpse at our first day in Nashville! I figured I’d spread out my posts about our time, so you’re not inundated with them. 🙂 I’ll also have Part 2 of Sarah’s Indonesian post up, soon. We had some problems with the pictures so she re-sent them to me. Oh, and one more thing, don’t forget to enter THIS giveaway that ends today!
What are y’all up to, today? I’m hoping to clean my office, finish unpacking from Nashville and work on my writing stuff, etc…
*I’m going to leave of the ‘adopted’ for the rest of this post.
