Riding the Nashville Star

I am back briefly to share a few photos.

Baby Harper has been very sick.
We had a fun week but sure 
wished our baby girl had been well.

I'm awaiting a phone call now 
to see if the doctor is going to admit her.

I hope they do.

After a trip to her regular physician last week, 
an urgent care visit on Sunday, a Vandy ER visit on Wednesday, 
another visit to regular physician yesterday
and again this morning, we want her well even if it takes
a hospital admission.

Our ride on the Nashville Star was fun.

The commuter train provides transportation
to and from downtown Nashville
to and from Lebanon, Hwy 109, Mt. Juliet, Hermitage
and Donalson.

Grandma was fussing with me for making
her sit down and get behind the yellow line.
I said, "Show me your ticket, Mam."
This week I was the boss.
( just teasing!)

Even the kids knew to stay behind the yellow line.

The kids had a great time getting 
to know their Great Grandma 
and Aunt Jean. 

This baby doll was excited!

We wave as the train approaches.

I, myself, was like a kid in a candy shop.

Look at my babies!

Our first and only stop was Mike's
an ice cream shop!

Cora got a taste from all of us,
triple chocolate, 
coffee fudge, 
butter pecan, 
peanut butter.


I found the little shop as yummy as the ice cream.

It felt like we had slipped back in time.

Great nostalgic photos lined the walls,

and musicians lined the walkways.

Connor tipped the sidewalk performer
on the way back to the train station.

It was a great week.
This day was particularly fun!

Just found out that Baby girl has pneumonia
and is being admitted.

Please say a prayer for her and mommy and daddy tonight.

See Ya Soon,



  1. Awwwwwwww keeping Miss Harper and her parents in prayer...she will be all 'fixed' up and feeling better soon, I just know it.

    What a fun trip y'all had...thanks for the smiles. Blessings sweet friend.

  2. Now that she is in the hospital she will get better. Prayers for all.

  3. Praying for the baby . Hope all will be well. I love that you got to be with your mom and grandmother. How wonderful. Get all the hugs you can Bonnie. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  4. So glad your precious baby is in the hospital so she can get well quickly. I hate it when my grands are sick. Thanks for sharing the train ride. That would be a fun weekend trip for us.

  5. Poor little Harper. Poor Mom and Dad - a sick child is so hard! Praying for all of them!
    Your excursion looks like such a fun time!

  6. Those are great pictures but I am sorry little Harper has pneumonia. That is nothing to fool with. I am glad they are admitting her so that she gets round the clock care...just having here there takes some of the worry out of the whole situation. Praying for the whole family, Bonnie. xo Diana

  7. I'm so sorry to hear that your sweet baby is ill. It is so scary to have sick children. Hospitals do take good care of them, though. I hope she gets better quickly. The train ride looked fun, too!

  8. Poor baby! Praying she is well in a hurry.
    Fun way to get some ice cream! I'd love to do trip ;-)
    Blessing, my friend!

  9. Hugs and Prayers for your little one as she recovers, a relief that she will have 24 hr monitoring. Scary stuff though. Hugs and Prayers for you and your family too.

  10. Oh, Bonnie, I'm so sorry to hear about your baby girl. I do hope she gets well soon, and I will say a prayer for her, my dear. How fun to ride the Nashville Star. It looks like you had many adventures along the way. Your grandma and Aunt Jean must have been thrilled! I love the red and white stripes on the train. It looks like a candy train. : )

    Happy November, Bonnie.

    love, ~Sheri

  11. Looks like it was a fun day out. I grew up in Nashville and I have always loved the things you can do all over the city. There are some great historical tours and battlegrounds and some interesting shops and stores downtown. I try and go back whenever I get the chance because the people there are all so friendly.
