We took our friend and his daughter to Nashville to catch a flight to see his other daughter’s child’s christening. After the airport drop-off, we headed to the Parthenon, Along the way, we stopped by a White Castle for Karen’s breakfast and her first White Castle experience.
After arriving at the Parthenon, Katie Beth was demanding that we moved to the center piece the the event, which was the Athena statue. It was impressive. The builders provided a rich history of how the building and statue came about to be. After seeing it and all of the other artwork in the Parthenon, we walked the beautiful grounds of the park. Hunger soon came upon us.
Next up was lunch, we headed to the Tailgate Beer’s Music Row. The pizza, beer, and outside seating was the winner for us. But for Katie Beth, Drew Lord’s mural and that he was working on it today was the winner. Katie Beth sat close to the mural and watched Drew work on it. After awhile, Drew approach Katie Beth and they chatted about art and drawing. He asked Katie Beth if she would like to help him with the mural. Drew Lord, being a parent, said check with her parents. Katie Beth quickly ran to us and to confirm that it was okay.
Drew asked Katie Beth to color in some details in a section of the mural. Katie Beth was intent with her work and focused. It was fun for Karen and I to watch Katie Beth painting maybe even more fun for us watching than her painting.
After Katie Beth finished the section, Drew had her sign her work, which was a very sweet thing to do. Drew, thanks for the cool opportunity.
What a day it has been! We look forward to returning to Nashville, soon.
