Going Home "Exploring Franklin, Tennessee"

On the church wall in Franklin

We made a stop at Franklin Springs Family Media. Our family has been blessed by all their films and were able to pick some of the recent ones we didn't have.

Some of the Tomlinson and Stinnett clan
We went to an old factory that has been turned into a mall. This man "Rusty" is 20 feet tall and made of all kinds of machine parts!

A display of what was made at the factory before it became the Franklin Mall.

Paul, James, Lydia, John and Daniel try out the largest rocking chair we have ever seen!

Craig slurps his drink at a restaurant in the mall- What a cutie!!!

Waiting for their lunch :)

We loved how this antique store was set up to almost feel like a house!

In the mall we saw a sign for "Shaohannah's Hope". We had heard of the ministry of the Chapmans helping Christian families with adoption and decided to check it out. Last summer Steven Curtis Chapman's youngest daughter was killed when hit by a car. That story was in the national news and God was given glory through such a sad and tragic time. We met Caleb Chapman who was working there. He took time out to talk to us for a little while.
Our day ended with Deanna giving us a mini-concert of new songs she's written.
