We were invited to fly to Nashville to visit with Mike's daughter and family. 
It was also a chance to meet Danny's cousin Dena and Aunt Cathy, who share their home. 
Dena is a very sweet person whom I truly enjoyed getting to know better.  
She is caretaker to her Aunt Cathy. 
So caring and giving - makes you want to be a better person.

Naturally we spent a day visiting the Grand Ole Opry.  
Even if you aren't a country music fan you should still go visit.  
The history behind the scenes was very exciting.  
And since I am a fan of the show "Nashville" I really enjoyed the 'behind the scene' stories. 

Natchez Trace Bridge

We enjoyed a brunch at Loveless Cafe - famous for their biscuits.  There was an hour waiting time but we were able to pass the time wandering around the property and the many little shops.

Downtown Franklin, Tennessee

Durham Manor

Baxter found a cozy place to nap with Papa. 

We were also able to enjoy some time with granddaughter Mikayla.
Mikayla is ready for Halloween - they were inspired by the movie "Castaway"

Caleb is a inspirational musician. 
We also had an opportunity to see grandson Caleb march with the high school band at a football half time and then participate in a marching competition at Vanderbilt University. 

Thank you Tonya, Danny and family for a very special weekend.
