1.) Take an early-morning walk at Radnor Lake
2.) After all that excercise you deserve a treat. Grab a newspaper and your comfy shoes and get in line at the Pancake Pantry. Waiting an hour in line for pancakes is a Nashville rite of passage-- and it really is worth the wait. I get the Sweet Potato Pancakes with Cinnamon Cream every single time.
3.) Leave someone in line to hold your place, grab your stroller and walk the couple of blocks to Dragon Park. Make sure you take your camera for some fun pics of the kiddos on the giant mosaic dragon.
4.) Visit The Frist Center for Visual Arts. With a large permanant collection, a fabulous art-for-kids area, and wonderful traveling exhibits, there's something for everyone in the family here. Right now you can drool over The Golden Age of Couture.
5.)If the weather is nice (Nashville in summer is muggy and HOT) head over to Cheekwood. Part gardens, part enormous art exhibit, there is always something wonderful to see here. Right now you can marvel at the fantastical glassworks of Chihuly.
I'm so glad we went, but I'm so glad to be home, too. Twenty-plus hours in the car with your kids is a lot of hours. I've got a busy week of sewing, painting and planning ahead of me-- can't wait to share!
