Road Trip 2013 – Pink Heals Tour, Nashville

This is my personal favorite group of pictures from our entire trip. Not based on their quality or content as much as how much this part of this particular day meant to me. We were spending time on Broadway in Nashville, just to walk around and look at souvenirs and such. As we headed back to the car we came across a pink fire truck. Of course, the color pink always means I need a picture. We turned the corner and the entire street was lined with pink emergency vehicles. All of these vehicles were covered in signatures, notes and messages. Alex, being the shy person he is (Not) went up and asked a lady what the trucks were all about. They are called “The Pink Heals Tour” and are touring the country raising money and awareness for women’s health in general, not just cancer.

As some may know, I lost my Grammy to breast cancer last fall. We asked if I could sign her name on the trucks and of course they said yes.


We miss you Grammy!

Road Trip 2013 – Nashville Zoo part 1

Our first day in Nashville we started off by going to the Nashville Zoo. Of course I took a ton of pictures. Enough that I am going to split them between two posts.
2013-06-25 08.07.21 - LPWe started off our day with a Starbucks stop of course. (Remember I said I took a picture of all of them?)

2013-06-25 08.11.36 - LPMacchiatto is ready to head to the Zoo!

590LPWe left from Kingston, TN for Nashville early. About 15 minutes west of Kingston you pass the timezone. So it turned out to be a 2 hour drive into Nashville.

592LPAlmost there!

598LPNashville Newsie? ( I currently work for a local paper and can’t even get away from papers on vacation… they are everywhere!)

608LPWe made it!

614LPAlex as we headed into the park. This was only his second Zoo and the first that had this many different animals, so he was very excited.

616LP629LP636LP639LP641LP662LPI am a sucker for flowers. Found a lot of cute flowers throughout the trip!

668LP670LP673LP676LP678LP701LP702LP705LP714LP720LP723LP727LP742LP747LPLorakeets Exhibit. We were able to walk right into this exhibit and feed the lorakeets nectar from little cups. Alex loved interacting with them and I enjoyed being close enough to get good pictures! This exhibit also made me wish my dad could have come, he would have loved all the different birds we got to see, especially these! Hope you like the pictures Daddy!


I will post the rest of the Zoo pictures very soon! In the meantime you can subscribe to the blog or follow my facebook page to stay updated about my posts!
