road trip day thirty one: drive to nashville (via paris)

paris park
After two LONG days in the car, we were all ready for a break to see Jacob's sister, Bethany, and her family in Paris, Tennessee.  We met up at a park near their house and the kids had a blast playing together.

eiffel tower
Fifteen cities in the US are named for the French capital, but only three have a replica of the Eiffel Tower so we spent some time getting pictures of the kids in front of the Tennessee version.

going on a walk
There was a short trail through the park and the kids had fun going on a walk.

Silly cousin pictures!

playing in the dirt and lunch
Ellie and Asher playing in the dirt and rocks- they were filthy by the time we left.  Paris is a small town and didn't have very many lunch options so we ended up at the Mexican restaurant in town.

nashville dinner
After a fun afternoon in Paris, we had to say goodbye and continue driving to Nashville for the night. Our neighbor recommended Cock of the Walk for dinner and we were not disappointed!  We dined on catfish fillet, chicken fingers, shrimp and the most amazing cornbread.  Lexie thought the pickled onions were the best part of the meal and ate the whole bowl!

The kids all got a kick out of the giant rocking chair in the entryway.
