Zoos and Watershows

It really seems like we have been on a neverending vacation this summer. What fun!

This week we were able to visit the Nashville Zoo (a great benefit of zoo membership - get in FREE at other zoos/aquariums). Although it was extremely humid and hot, we loved the historic home and the zoo's story! The zoo also offered views of animals in a very natural environment, and it did not have the typical zoo smell.

We were also able to stay at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel for the first time. My mother said it best when she said it was like a cruise ship. Everything is right here, and my husband's only complaint is that it takes so long to get anywhere! There are beautiful gardens, waterfalls, shops, restaurants, pools, and walkways.

Tonight we were able to see a special watershow from a restaurant seat. The fountains would shoot over 50 foot in the air as music played from around the world. Absolutely gorgeous!
