Beautiful summer day

We went to an awesome park in Nashville, it had lots of people and beautiful scenery. I'm just sharing a couple pics right now.

There is a trail around the pond where people can walk, run, jog etc. It is one mile around, we just walked a little ways and stopped to feed the ducks and the pigeons.

Here are my sweet little people although they aren't that little anymore.

Here we are :)
Yes my 13 yr old is almost as tall as me, heck the 10 yr old isn't far behind. I just found out he was standing on a hill but he is only a few inches shorter than I am.
After we left here we went to a little drive up type ice cream stand. Everyone ordered ice cream but I ordered sweet potato fries. Oh my gosh they are awesome, I have got to make some at home.
Then we went to another park because Jared wanted to go to the playground. The park we were at had a playground but it was packed.
There were a lot of people at the next park too but we were able to have enough room. There were some cute little tikes there and they came up and asked me to help them on the monkey bars. If you help one all of a sudden you have a line of kids wanting to do it.
I told Jason I must look trustworthy because they came right up to me like they knew me, he said they can tell you're a mom.
We were there awhile and Jared wanted to swing but they were never open, so we waited because he wouldn't leave happy if he didn't get to swing.
The swings finally became available and he was ready to go after that.
We drove through downtown for a bit, the nightlife there is booming. Jason and I really need a night out someday. The kids like to look at all of the big buildings and lights. There is an A T &T building and they call it the bat building because it looks like batman.

On the way home we saw a beautiful full moon, I tried to get a shot while driving but that wasn't happening.
We got off the freeway and found a place to stop right over the lake.
Just gorgeous!
Then we headed home, it was a great time.

Thanks for taking pictures and sharing them. I like those big pots of plants at the intersection of the trails. And so much beautiful water, and the moon...

Glad to see you had a nice day with your family. My parents used to live right outside Nashville. I miss going there, it is a pretty city.

Congrats on the ongoing weight loss, btw. Saw your ticker on the side. You look great : )
