On my last day in Murfreesboro, I spent Father's Day with the Brown family! I wanted to take my picture with the dads of the family - this is Heather's dad, Mark, and her brother, Jordan, whose baby is due in October!

In TN with Heather Brown!!

We went to Nashville on Saturday for a DZ Father-Daughter event!
We had the Father-Daughter lunch at the Gerst Haus - an infamous German restaurant in downtown Nashville.

Across the street from the Gerst Haus is LP Field - Home of the Tennessee Titans!

Sommet Center - This is home of the Nashville Predators....for now anyway!

The Country Music Hall of Fame...yes, it is Music City

The Ryman Auditorium - This was the original home of the Grand Ole Opry.

The Batman Building! Ok, it's really the BellSouth Tower, but it's known in Nashville as the Batman Building because the top looks like Batman's mask. It's currently the tallest building in Nashville. Until....The Signature Tower is complete. Then this building will be the 3rd tallest in the United States...I think

The Tennessee State Capitol and Legislative Plaza

We went over the Vanderbilt University Campus for a little while...Here's Heather's Alma Mater! And here's where Heather sends a lot of her clients from work....there were some crazy phone calls I heard during my stay! The Vanderbilt Bill Wilkerson Center is the home of the National Center for Childhood Deafness and Family Communication and also has speech, language, rehabilitation and audiology services. Fits in well with our national philanthropy!Vanderbilt Children's Hospital is where the Heart of Tennessee Alumnae Chapter performs their philanthropy work!

In TN with Heather Brown!!!

I decided to catch some rays before I jumped in the pool. Time to take a dip! My turtle shell is nice to float around on.

Heather got this interesting badge pillow while I was there. I was rather fond of the colors.

Jordan, Heather, Tasha and I went out to eat at the Mellow Mushroom after swimming. We were hungry!! They had a fun atmosphere and cool shirts.

Heather and I smiling after eating!!

I went to TN to see Heather Brown!!

I finally arrived in Murfreesboro! It was late...
But she let me have a party with some fellow turtles while she finished working

She had a Tippy sized bed that just perfect for me

I was kind of excited about going swimming and I kept jumping around the car
Here I am with Heather's brother, Jordan! He was pretty cool.....Until I asked if I could drive....
Be he relented. I was too cute to say no!

I made it to England to see Mia!!!

Mia and I went all over the farm, here we are checking out one of the barns on the Chateaux in France
Jacob was trying to make me dizzy, but we wanted to get as much as the Châteaux De Flottemanville as possible

Another view in front of the Chateaux

I’ve never seen a city built on a mountain, that’s an island…….I really enjoyed Mont St. Michel.

My bedroom in the Gite (small cottage), it was comfortable…they use duvet’s and no sheets…it was weird! Well this was all from my side trip to France. I loved the Normandy D-Day sights, but it was to solemn a place to take pictures with a traveling turtle! BonJour….
I am sad to leave Endgland and France..... I wonder where I am headed next?!?!?

I made it to England to see Mia!!!

Some of the things I learned in the UK: This is a Conservatory

In Denmark I had so much fun hanging out with Anjel's laundry, I asked Mia to pin me up for a few minutes

Mia has a pub in her house...what's a barwench?

Ahh, my other small friends...The Booze Brothers

The other weird thing I learned in the UK...this thing is called a "Hob"...silly me calling it a stove top, and what's it doing so low to the ground?

I made it to England to see Mia!!!

When Mia said she was doing everybody's work she sure wasn't kidding, I tried to help out but I didn't understand her organized chaos....
I had to get a picture driving on the "wrong" side of the road. I had to turn around in case any cars were coming towards us...Scary

Dusty Dog and I had fun riding in the back of the Mini....who said England has horrible weather

Shawn let me help drive the MINI...

Can you find me...I'm hiding in the flowers with the Swaffham village sign. Every town has there own sign...Swaffham's sign shows the Peddler of Swaffham.

There are all kinds of small folk that were just my size...I'm blocking the rain level on Fred so you all think it was beautiful for my entire visit!
