Nashville with the family

In late August we decided to take a family trip to Nashville. We figured it would be the last time we could all go as a family until next summer. We left Friday night right after Cody get off work and drove almost to St Louis. We stayed the night in a hotel and the next morning drove the rest of the way to Nashville. On our way we decided to stop in St Louis and visit the Arch. The kids thought it was pretty cool to be able to go that high and look out the little windows. Mama, on the other hand, would have preferred staying on the ground!

Ella looks like she is getting ready to jump out of the Arch!

Posing for Mama to take some pictures!

St Louis

On our way to Chattanooga, TN we decided to stop in St. Louis and visit the arch and eat at the Hard Rock Cafe.

This picture cracks me up every time I see it! It totally looks like she is getting ready to frog hop out the little window. Silly girl!

The kids had fun in St Louis. Not sure if it was because they thought the arch was cool or if it was simply because we were out of the car! But, either way, it was a great way to break up a long trip. It was nice to have a few days to do the traveling and be able to stop and see the sights. It made the trip much more bearable for all us!
