We had so much fun in Nashville last week, it was our first time visiting & we loved exploring the city. Well, as much exploring as one can possibly do with three kids, and an overall party of ten. Brandon's parents & his sister's family met us there for a little weekend getaway, we rented a house through airbnb which ended up being such a great experience. It was a little 4 bedroom bungalow, fully furnished with everything we needed. The drive was rough, this was the whole reason we decided to postpone our Iowa trip, little girlfriends do not like their car seats. But we managed, we got there early Saturday afternoon all in one piece & kicked off the weekend with some Mexican food from Rosepepper Cantina, some of the best chips & guac I have ever had!
Sunday morning, we headed off to the Grand Ole Opry tour. We are huge country music fans so it was a must-see for us while in the city. Turns out, it was not a must-see for Eloise, she was a total disaster and Brandon had to take her outside half way through. She was running up and down the halls squealing, and throwing a tantrum any time one of us held her or tried putting her in the stroller. Guess she still needed to run off some energy after the long car ride. Lesson learned. Harper loved every bit of it & Claire snoozed the entire time in my Solly wrap.

A special thanks to Brandon's mom for bringing matching outfits for the girls & their cousin! :)
We had dinner at the highly recommended Pharmacy Burger, which has the most charming outdoor patio filled with string lights & pretty trees. The burgers & beer were amazing & the kids loved eating outside. A tip in case you're ever in the area, go early for dinner because by the time we left, the line was around the block. And with kids, that is no bueno.
The next day we were headed to Franklin for the day to see the downtown & visit Gentry's Farm for their pumpkin patch and activities. We ate at Biscuit Love for breakfast, and again, the food was out of this world! :) The "bonuts" were so good, we ordered a big plate of those first and were almost too full to eat our actual meals after that. At the farm, the kids got to ride on a tire swing, go through the corn maze & play lots of fun Fall games. And we couldn't leave without a few pumpkins to carve later that night on the back porch of our house.
There were fun parks & playgrounds around every corner, lots of fun things for the kids to do & see. We are already planning our next trip! And we couldn't leave without a quick stop at Jeni's Ice Creams (even though we have one in Atlanta) because it is just that good.
The car ride home was equally painful, Eloise & Claire were dueling pianos of tears for about 35 solid minutes so we decided to stop for lunch to get the kids out of the car for a bit. While in line to order, Eloise proceeded to bite a Hazelnut coffee creamer in half, squirting it all over herself & Brandon. So the rest of the ride home, our little torture chamber on wheels smelled like a coffee shop. ;) The adventures never end!
Until next time, Nashville!
