Quick Trip to Tennessee

Marilyn took me with her to Franklin to babysit Anja (2 1/2) and Isabel (7 months) while Greg and Lisa took a trip to Canada. We flew up Tuesday; Greg and Lisa left on Wednesday morning.

Both the girls are easy. Anja loves to play, eat, and do anything two year olds like to do. She is easily entertained. The only thing she doesn't really care for is bedtime. Isabel doesn't seem to meet a stranger. She is such a happy baby with a sweet smile. 



On another note, Marilyn had done some additional research on our "Taylor" family before we left. She had a map and some information for us. 

I'll let Marilyn recount our fun day of exploring...

"Thursday while Anja was at daycare, Diana, Isabel, and I went about an hour northeast of Franklin to an area that was once a thriving community - Taylorsville. This community was named after our GGGGF. We found the original home that was built in the early 1800's. (I will do another post about the house and family - I promise.) We went to about five old family cemeteries. We never confirmed that the Taylors were buried in any of them. I think one was a great possibility. We talked to three interesting people while there - a neighbor lady with strange dogs, a farmer with a rifle in his hand as we talked, and an extremely nice lady mail carrier. We will come back to this area on another trip to Tennessee."


We had a couple of great meals out during the trip - one at the historical Loveless Cafe and the other at the Sunset Diner in Lebanon (found that one off Trip Advisor).

Marilyn and I had a great time. The laughs, tears, hot flashes, meals, and time with her grandbabies made it all a very special trip.

I am so thankful she took me with her!
