 We went with Aaron's parents to tour Belle Meade Plantation - a pre-civil war place. After a picnic, we went on the guided tour of the home, then had a little time to look around the grounds.
 Esther in front of a little play house -
 We didn't bother to take Anna out of the stroller for the picture...
 The irises here are beautiful in the spring! They're the state flower and you see them all over.
 In front of an old wagon or something -
 This is inside of the smokehouse. I forget the exact number of hogs per year, but they did a lot of butchering.
 Esther :)
 Then we went downtown Nashville and went for a real carriage ride - it was a beautiful evening to be outside!
 The girls enjoyed the clip-clop sound the horses feet made on the pavement -
However, Esther does not like loud noises and put her hands over her head whenever we went by a place playing loud music :)

I've visited Belle Meade. Such a lovely home and grounds. Haven't been to Nashville in a while, but always enjoyed going there. I think I'm due for another visit--such a lot of interesting things to see in that area!
