Cheekwood is one of our favorite spots in Nashville. It isn’t far from the center of the city, and it’s such a beautiful place to walk around.
During the fall, Cheekwood has a pumpkin exhibit for children. This year, it was even bigger than last year. Little Buddy and I visited with one of his friends. Even though it was the end of October, it was a scorcher (the last hot day of the year). Being pregnant, I was pretty miserable, but my friend understood how I was feeling because she was further along than I was. We were both determined to make it fun for our boys, and I think we succeeded.
The pumpkin house (pictured at the top of the post) is a kid favorite. This year, Cheekwood had a new feature that was simple but a huge hit among the toddlers: piles of pumpkins to climb on. What fun!
The one downside of Cheekwood is that it’s very hilly, so a great place to visit if you are wanting a gentle workout. Not so great if you’re pregnant and pushing a stroller. But we knew ahead of time and came prepared with plenty of water.
