Going in Feb. over winter break with toddler who will be just shy of 3 then.  In-laws are meeting us and will be around for some babysitting here and there, but still it needs to be somewhat of a child-friendly trip because we can't take advantage and leave him behind the whole week.  I'm just jotting down ideas and wondering if anyone else has thoughts.

We fly in Sunday night and fly our Friday night.  Memphis seems like there's more to do than Nashville so I was thinking we'd spend the extra day there. 

Can't really pack the itinerary as much as I usually do, but here's what I got as far as rough notes (with some things needing to be cut probably).  I can't suggest anything wrestling-related really, but does Lawler have anything in town or is Mid-South Coliseum still around or was it demolished (I know it was closed).
