As new residents of Spring Hill, TN, we've been waiting for cooler weather (anything below 90, pretty please) to get us out of the confines of our home and outdoors to explore our new community.
Finally, the weather took a dip. Not only did it get cooler, temps bypassed the 80s and went right to the low 70s. So, yesterday, we found ourselves heading out to see a few sites.
We went to Winstead Hill park in Franklin. We took a walk on the paved trail
and looked at the Civil War monuments. It was interesting to read the plaques from the Confederate point of view. Definitely a different tone and voice in their messages. Bravery in the face of defeat, I suppose. It was educational, especially after our many visits to Gettysburg.
Our Yankee-born child in front of the Confederate flag:
Michael had devil's food while Nicolas had cookies and cream.
I enjoyed every bite of the lemon cake.
We walked around the town and then took a drive to Leiper's Fork (10 miles outside Franklin) where there is a quaint historic town in a rural area. The ranches on the way to Leiper's Fork were gorgeous. Breathtaking, rolling hills!
