Week one- part two
Sorry there aren't more pictures, but we have been taking lots of video, and not a lot pictures. I seem to have sized them too small, so I'll try a little bigger next time, so that the quality is better.
We made it to Oklahoma City, where we enjoyed a visit with Aunt Lucille, Aunt Myrtle, Jesse, and my cousin Michael. We woke up the next morning to a thundershower, but by the time we ate breakfast it had all cleared.
We spent the morning there, then headed to Memphis, where we stopped for dinner at an A & R Bar-B-Q, that was listed in the book, Roadfood, by Jane and Michael Stern.
The next morning, it was on to the Parthenon in Nashville. Trey had heard about this, and wanted to stop, as we were passing by Nashville, on our way to Pigeon Forge. We like the beautiful grounds of the park as well as the museum, which holds many paintings and sculptures.
Here we are, posing with the glassblower who made our little pumpkin. It was quite interesting to watch how they are made.
On to the climbing towers at Dollywood. The kids really had a lot of fun on this attraction. I even gave it a try, and it wasn't scary at all. You're so strapped in that you know that if you fall, you won't be going anywhere.
Next post is on to Wake Forest, and their Independence Day parade and Celebration.
