Leaving Memphis we were back on the road to Nashville. We got there in time for dinner which we ate at Jim 'n Nicks -- a really nice barbecue place with these ---
Shortly thereafter Bean fell asleep at the table and we headed off to the hotel for a good night's sleep -- I love Marriott's beds -- I always get a good night's sleep there.
The next morning we set out to visit the Country Music Hall of Fame and what fun that was! It was raining and miserable outside so this was a great place to spend half the day.

|The main exhibit was Loretta Lynn|
|In the Taylor Swift Educational Center the kids could do crafts -- Bean did a backstage pass!|
So, after lunch we headed to the Tennessee State Museum. It was a lovely museum that reminded me of the Institute of Texan Cultures. However, by the time we got there my knees were done and I sat most of the visit and missed quite a few things, like their quilt collection.
When we finished with the museum we decided to look for dinner. The weather was horrible, flooding, deluge rain. It was not a pleasant day -- it only got worse.
Headed back to the area of the hotel we had a car accident -- a person lost control of the car in the rain, slid in front of us, my daughter was braking but hit them anyway, they did a 360, bounced off the retaining wall and came back to hit us two more times. We were fine but there is damage to the car. Unfortunately the driver of the other car was taken to the hospital.
We finally found dinner at Olive Garden.
Returning to our hotel room we learned that there was a chance of snow that night. I figured it wouldn't. I was wrong. It snowed.
We left the next morning and I have to say I couldn't get out of Tennessee fast enough.
Next installment -- Savannah!
