Nashville Day 2: Dunbar Cave and the Parthenon

Forgive me for the huge gap in posts...I spent most of this last week nursing sick family members. First all three kids were sick (and when I say sick I mean SICK... I spent my entire evening Monday running children and bowls to the toilet). Then the hubby came down with it, and yesterday it caught up with me. Anyway, we're all better now so here's some more pictures from our Nashville trip!

Wednesday evening we headed up to Clarksville, TN to visit some dear friends of ours, the Dittmeiers. We were stationed with them at RAF Lakenheath and hadn't seen them in about four years. They allowed us to take over their basement for a couple nights and we're so happy that we got to see them again!
Thursday, Dan & Mary both took the day off work to spend time with us...aren't they sweet? After a tasty breakfast, the hubby & Dan took all the kids (my three plus Dan's grandson Brayden) to the park at Dunbar Cave, while the women (myself, Mary, and her daughters Elizabeth and Kerry) hit up Hobby Lobby. Oh yes...did I tell you that I got the best surprise ever when we drove into Clarksville and there sat my favorite store ever?!
*Ahem* I'm sorry...where was I again? Oh...right...Dunbar Cave. *smooths shirt*
Then we left the Dittmeier's to head back to Nashville and check into our hotel. We made a pitstop along the way at the Parthenon...a life-size, scale replica of the one in Greece. It was really amazing!
This first picture is of a statue outside of the Parthenon...but I wanted to share because it was taken by my 8 year old. Methinks we have a budding photographer on our hands!(Those are full grown, adult women by the base of the statue...the thing was GINORMOUS!)

Nope, we live in South Carolina. We were in Nashville last month for a hockey tournament. It's so beautiful there!
