My sister, Laurie, came to visit us this weekend. It was so nice to see her and have an extra pair of hands around the house! She came in on the redeye on Friday morning and since we were already in Nashville we went over to Cheekwood to see what was going on there. We went last May for Mother's Day and hadn't been back since. I wasn't hoping for much since I figured the spring and summer flowers were gone but it was gorgeous and I had a way better time this visit than last. It wasn't hot and we didn't need the stroller - having another adult around didn't hurt either!! The model trains were running and they are fantastic. There is also a display of scarecrows around the gardens which are all really unique! If you are in the Nashville area I would strongly recommend visiting before we get a frost - it was beautiful!!Laurie with the kids:
