This past long weekend we went to Nashville to see the sights with our good friends, the Dicksons. We didn't realize it was so close...only 2 1/2 hours away! When we got there we unloaded our things at the luxurious "Days Inn" (haha) and hit the road. Our first stop was the Opry Hills Mall. It is this gigantic mall with all sorts of shopping and themed restaurants like "Rainforest Cafe" and "the Aquarium". Hans and Jon's favorite though was a huge Tool Warehouse. Next we went to the Opryland Hotel to tour around. It is amazing!! It has 4 atriums fulls of plants, flowers and waterfalls. I felt like I was in a tropical rain forest. After we went to dinner in downtown Nashille at a place called Demos. I would highly recommend it for anyone that goes. That night we played some dice game called "Farkle" which I won by the way (I am not competitive at all....jk) and ate ice cream. Hans scarfed his down in less than 5 seconds and the rest of us had not even gotten half way done. That confirms Hans' name of "The Human Garbage Disposal". The next day we toured the Country Music Hall of Fame. It was really amazing. My favorite part was to see Elvis' car. It had a TV and an ice maker which was really unheard of back then. We had a great time and now Hans and I are going to save our pennies so we can go back and stay in the Opryland Hotel. Let us know if you want to come too!!
