Cheekwood – Tuesday for Tots

This isn’t exactly a full on group activity, I thought I would share this anyway. Cheekwood does a weekly art/craft project for little kids called Tuesdays for Tots. I’ll be there almost every week, so I thought I would share in case anyone wants to join. It runs from 10am-Noon, but I’ll be going around 11:30am. 😊👍

When – Tues. May 22nd at 11:30am

Where – Cheekwood Botanical Gardens and Museum

There is a cost to get in via a ticket or membership. For more information visit

Adventure Science Center – Playgroup

It’s going to be raining tomorrow, in theory. So, we’re heading over to the Adventure Science Center. It’s not the best place for us dads to socialize since keeping up with kids can be a challenge there, but it’ll keep us dry! Come down and join our adventure!

Nashville Zoo – Playgroup

We haven’t been able to get to the zoo for quite some time due to weather, so we’ll head out there this week for playgroup.

Hatcher Dairy Farm – Field Trip

Hey guys, it’s time for another group field trip event! Next week we’re heading heading to Hatcher Dairy Farm to take the tour! It’s a guided walking tour with stations showcasing all the aspects of how a dairy farm works! They are located in College Grove a little outside Nashville, and this is happening TUESDAY (the 3rd) as opposed to. We may still do a playgroup on Wednesday, but we’ll decide that while at the dairy farm. The tour begins at 10am, so try to arrive by 9:30am. The forecast suggests rain is possible, but if weather shuts down the tour it gets rescheduled. Tickets for the tour can be bought via their website, calling them, or at the gate on that day. Tickets are $8 per person. Hope to see moo there…I mean you there!

When: Tuesday April 3rd at 10am.

Making Friends

One of the things I like best about being a part of Nashdads is making new friends. It’s great to have other dads to relate to and share parenting struggles with. One of the things I also enjoy is watching my son grow with his friends too. I thought it’d be fun to put together a short video slideshow as tribute to to one such friendship.
