....a time to relax....

Enjoying Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Gardens in Nashville, Tennessee.


Jeremy and Bridgett met us in Nashville. They live in Huntsville, Alabama.


Some neat streetlamps

Yummy yummy food!



He knows I like horses, but seriously now!

This door is a 7.5 ton bronze door at the Parthenon - what in the world do you need a door that heavy for?

Inside the Parthenon is the Greek mythical figure, Athena. 8 pounds of 23.75 karat gold is spread over the figure. To give you some perspective, the little dude in her hand is 6'4" tall. She is about 42 foot tall.

The outside of the Parthenon, the only replica of its kind in the world.


Jay was able to get a good deal at the Embassy Suites. It's one of our favorite places to stay. Besides having a garden/atrium in the middle of the hotel, they cook you "made to order" omelettes in the morning and it's free! This isn't a continental type deal either! Made to order omelettes, bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy, eggs and cheese, french toast, fresh fruit, chocolate milk, orange juice, bananas etc etc. You definitely get a regular breakfast! I liked these thingies above the elevators.

Outside the Parthenon again

The original Parthenon was in Greece. This is just a replica but definitely interesting and big! This replica is in Nashville.

Did you just say that "made-to-order omelettes, bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy, eggs and cheese, french toast, fresh fruit, chocolate milk, orange juice and bananas" is a regular breakfast???
