On Friday afternoon - only Aaron and the Garmin knew where we were headed....So when we passed the Grand Ole Opry sign in TN - Aaron handed me all the venue tickets for the weekend - and told me what we were doing at each place! I was thrilled - and so surprised...but not as surprised as when we got to the hotel...and realized how everything was made for guests 5'9" and under. Aaron was up for a challenge fitting under this high-tech shower!So our first morning - we got ready and headed to Opryland for a lovely breakfast Buffet! It was all you can eat - and we did just that. it was such a fun breakfast - in a really neat environment. We had to fill-up - because we had a lot of places to see that day!Here's a shot from inside Opryland - we took a lot of self-portraits...Aaron's 4 foot long arm is very helpful in these situations!
From the Ryman - we walked around Downtown Nashville - which was a great experience - there's so much to see and hear - always music playing in every restaurant and on every street corner. We met Elvis - and he was kind enough to let me get my picture with him!We also got to see the Countly Music Hall of Fame - that was really awesome - there's a ton of stuff in there from Johnny Cash, Elvis, Hank Williams, Dolly Parton - and other Famous country characters. Here's just one of the walls of records...Here's me and Tim McGraw - he wanted my autograph - but I couldn't find a pen:)
We spent the remainder of the day at Opry Mills (Outlet mall at Opryland) that was a lot of fun - even for Aaron! We ate a late lunch and got ready for one of the best parts of the trip - the Grand Ole Opry! We got a chance to see Brad Paisley, Trace Adkins, Whispering Bill Anderson, Jimmy Jenkins - and a few other people - all in the same show. It was so much fun and we had great seats!I could not have asked for a more perfect trip! It was a great celebration of 3 incredible years of marriage! God has been so faithful to us and we are so fortunate to share this life together!
