Terrific Trip To Tennessee

It is the time of the year for Joel and Pawpaw's annual elk hunting trip to Colorado, but Pawpaw had shoulder surgery in May and his shoulder just hasn't healed properly and so they can't go on their trip. We decided to drive over on Thursday evening and spend a couple of days with them to cheer the disappointed hunters up! On Friday Nana took us over to the Smokey Mountains to spend the day. This was Squirrel's first trip that she was old enough to realize where she was. We ate lunch at the Apple Barn and as you can see she really liked the apple fritters and apple butter.

Squirrel was really smiling for the camera!

Not sure what Possum was doing?
These pictures were made to show Poppa and Nana Bama that we ate at one of their favorite places!!
After a trip to Bass Pro Shops, lunch (followed by a trip to the candy store and buying homemade apple pies), and doing a little shopping, we drove through Cade's Cove. Possum and Squirrel took a little nap until we got there. We then quickly woke them up to see all the critters!
We saw turkeys, deer, and even a bear! Unfortunately the picture of the bear that I took was just a blur.

We had a wonderful little visit with Pawpaw and Nanna.
