Ramblings from the backroad....

A few days ago, my husband and I enjoyed a fun extended weekend in one of our favorite cities, Nashville, Tennessee! We attended the American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Convention that was held at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel. The convention is in a different state each year. This is our 4th time attending, and we always look forward to it.

Our convention was full of great breakout sessions with a variety of topics. I am a volunteer for Ag in the Classroom and loved the Purple Plow breakout session for new ideas for classroom lessons!

We also heard from Reba during the closing session. A highlight of the convention was that President Trump came and addressed the thousands of farmers and ranchers that attended.

Nashville is one of our favorite cities! We first went there on our honeymoon and stayed at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel, and have been there a few times since then. The hotel is a beautiful resort and convention center that is full of indoor atrium gardens, little shops, restaurants, and a lazy river that you can enjoy a boat ride.

We really like to go downtown and enjoy the atmosphere. We enjoyed eating at the Wildhorse Saloon and Caney Fork Restaurant. A place we really loved was The Southern! We love to seek out good food when we travel and it was so worth it.

We jumped on board with the Uber service as a way to save us parking and having to drive. So many of our friends were using it on the trip and it was so convenient!! One of our drivers actually gave us the restaurant suggestion for The Southern and I'm so glad we checked it out!

Our last evening we enjoyed a Grand Ole Opry Performance!

A few things I picked up from the weekend:

This FarmHer t-shirt

This set of chapter books for my boys to read featuring stories on the farm.

Now back to our regular schedule of school, work, and sports practices. I'll be enjoying more of my Instant Pot as well!
