Tennessee Thanksgiving

We drove down to Maynardville TN on Thanksgiving morning. Adam wasn't able to go because he had to work on Friday and Saturday. Kelly was home from VCU. We arrived in the early afternoon and sat down to a very nice turkey dinner with Joan & Mike and Michelle and her two (Kayla and Noah).

IMG_3423IMG_3410 We were also able to stop by the Big Ridge State Park and the Norris Dam State Park to check out the facilities and see what it might be like if we stayed there in our yet-to-be-purchased RV. We also went to an RV Campground in Clinton that has advertised for workampers. Friday night we went over to Michelle and Jeremy's for a game of Monopoly and some 'Guitar Hero' moves. As usual, Jeremy cleaned up and beat Mike and I. Kelly and Michelle also got the tree up.
