Day 1 - To Nashville

Today, we met at Cullman First and Huntsville First at 8am and left from the churches to meet up on I-65 around 9:30am. Our first real stop was at Famous Dave's BBQ in Franklin, Tennessee. We had a great lunch and headed to Nashville Shores straight from there. 

At Nashville Shores, most people stayed in either the lazy river or the wave pool. Mary and Davonne had fun alternating between floating in the lazy river and laying out beside it. There were some odd characters at Nashville Shores to say the least, but we left with everyone, and they all had fun.

We are staying the night at Sleep Inn in which Jeremy and Christen thoroughly checked all beds in all our rooms for cleanliness before we all arrived. We had Chick-fil-A for dinner and left for Nashville First to watch the fireworks at 8:30pm.

Getting to Nashville First was no problem for John Parrish and Miss Mary. Getting in and getting out were both 4-person affairs. The fireworks over the river in downtown Nashville were amazing. We thought it had started ... but it hadn't. Then we knew it had started but thought it had ended ... but it hadn't. When it did end, we knew it. It was a great show.

Back at the hotel, we gave out shirts and went to bed. We all have had a long day and will have another one tomorrow.
