All Aboard the General Jackson

On Tuesday in Nashville, we boarded the General Jackson showboat for music, food, dancing, and a fun stage show!

Poppy was with us, and although it was truly the hottest day ever, he and the kids couldn’t resist shakin’ and groovin’ with the band on the top deck! 027 028 030 032 033

Needless to say, the air-conditioned dining room was a welcome relief after all that dancing!  We had a yummy lunch and cruised down the Cumberland River while watching a music-comedy show.035 036 038

We all had a great time!  Seamus loved watching the Nashville skyline…

“Hey Mom, look!  it’s the Batman building!”  042

It does look just like Batman!  And in case you were wondering, YES – the real Batman does live here (he sleeps inside one of the ears) and he parks his Batmobile in the basement!  Seamus was happy to clarify that for me!

Great pics - it looks like you guys had a blast on the showboat. And, I'm totally laughing at the 'Batman building' because that's what Kylie was calling it too!

Looks like a fun trip on the Showboat - even in the heat! The kids cutting the rug is too cute!

It's been so fun bouncing around to all of these blogs and reading all of the Nashville adventures. Everyone got such different angles of the trip. I'm so glad to see where batman lives, I had no idea he slept in one of the ears! LOL

I can't tell you how jealous I am of all of the POLP families that made it to the national this year! I am loving all the pics from everybody! The batman building is way too cool! Haha Love it! Super awesome that you got to meet the Roloffs and got a pic! My favorite pic is of the kids getting rides on the luggage!! Riding in style! Too cute!!!

Love the picture of you with the kids! You look fab! Amazing how no matter how cold or hot it is outside for us....it doesn't phase the kids in the least. What an awesome trip to Nashville you had!
