Off to Nashville! 8 hours in the car with 4 kids.
Anyone need a bird bike?

Where I will live in Nashville. Between the Panera Bread and Starbucks…..and….
if I need Zombie Survival Gear…it’s just up the road!
Friday we went to Troy’s house (who is selling some neat necklaces to help with his 2nd adoption) for a cook out. Greg is having a pretty serious conversation with our friend Selam.
Some beautiful children.—some of which did not want their picture taken!
Finally meeting me friend Stacey. She and her family have been a support to us in our journey and we have loved them from afar. I got to hug her neck this weekend! Her daughter and Rachel made fast friends during the weekend!
The girls getting their brothers! Look at those smiles!
Some of my favorite people! We were hot and sticky sweaty. (It was near the 100’s) but we were having a good time!
Group shot of all the families.
All the kids
We went to have pizza with some friends.
So great to spend time with these gals! Lots of laughter and conversation going on that night!
Sunday we had lunch at a local Ethiopian restaurant.
Ethiopian coffee with Maria…… ahhhh.
We went to the Centennial Mall in Nashville. Very nice. Except it was so stinkin hot.
Monday night we went to Mammoth Cave with the Pelley’s and did a night tour.
Look at the dates from these smoke writings. 1832!!
It was very neat to see where a doctor tried to help tb patients, the smoke writings, and mining things from that long ago! I love history.
Funny story—At one point we were all sitting in one spot on benches and the guides were going to take the lanterns and leave so we could experience the darkness and the silence. This is where Ralph Waldo Emerson had sat and wrote poem about. They leave to walk down the trail and we are all sitting there and someone passes gas. LOUD. Well, as you can imagine the kids all are laughing hysterically. Who am I kidding? I was laughing hysterically. Some poor lady was trying to shush us all to be quiet. But, alas, the moment was gone.
