Nashville Part 2

Nashville was a whirlwind of activity. Eric,the girls and my mom spent a couple of days adventuring while my dad and I were in conferences.

They first hit up Nashville's recreation of the Parthenon. Cordelia dressed in all white and looked very Athenian indeed.

 
Check out that insane statue of Athena!

 
Science Adventure Museum was a huge hit with the girls.

 
I think this was at the state museum. Idk.

 
Science Museum.

 
Capital building.
 
My mother texted me this photo only after they were down as she is well aware of my serious fear of heights. I get sweaty palmed just looking at this.

 
My gorgeous mother.

 
Elise. I am going to have to post the series of photos I had to take to get this. She is so animated.

 
Ha! I love this age! 

Just because.

 
Lunch at the Sunflower Cafe.
 
 
We went to the Hermitage, Andrew Jackson's estate. It was a strange and beautiful place, but heavy with the history of slavery, something we aren't used to in our region. Here Cordelia was happily pulled into a reenactment of a duel.

 
My mom and Elise watching the duel.

 
My darling daughters.

 
So many butterflies.

My mother.

 
 Back near where the slave houses has been at the Hermitage.

 
Magnolia

 
My mister.

The girls with my dad. Look at each face! Ha ha ha

 
 Elise.

 
Sisters at the Nashville Public Library.

Free puppet show at the library. It was astoundingly top notch with real artists and beautiful works of art puppets. I wasn't allowed to take photos during the performance, but it was really stellar!

 
 Willow and water.

 
Our hotel had a deal with the Frist Art Museum and we showed them our room key and all got in for FREE! We spent a couple of hours there and the kid art center was amazing!

 
Hotel swimming.

 
Cordelia on a carousel.

 
Elise in a mask.

 
Sisters sticking together on the flight home.

 
Such good travelers. We landed in Denver and headed south to be with family in NM and prepare for the funeral. 

Thanks to all of you who have sent kind words and well wishes for our family. We are so very grateful that we have such a loving and supportive community.
