Thanksgiving Vaca

We had a full week of activities.  Monday, we had a family from church the Burkholder's over to our house.  Tuesday, Kevin took me out on a date to Ruth's Chris Steak House while Jean and Rich watched the children...and to their delight, took them to Chuck E. Cheeses!  Wednesday, we visited w/Ms Barbara before church.  Since she hasn't been able to come to church for a while, we thought it would be nice to sing some hymns together.  Thursday, we headed to Cumberland Gap and had great time exploring there.  Friday was an entire day at Dollywood!  Saturday, we went to a Holiday Inn, swam for hours, spent the night there, and then woke up to swim some more.  :)

Yes, Dollywood is certainly a fun place.  We went to one of the shows...Dollywood's Christmas on Ice, preformed by skaters from Ice Theatre of New York City.  The kids were amazed.  The Christmas lights were outstanding!  That is one of my favorite things also, Meradeth.  :)
I never thought about you not knowing Kevin played the piano, hahaha.  We had a good time w/Barbara.  I'm thankful to live near her again.
The meal at Ruth's Chris was exceptional.  THE best!  I remember getting you a gift card there, Kristin;  it definitely didn't cover much of your meal, did it?  Hahaha!  Thank you for saying we looked nice.  You all are so sweet!  (Candace)

Yes, Grandaddy, I am tired. And you're right about driving back and forth, back and forth.  So I told Mama and Daddy, when are we gonna stop!?  We made four trips to Dollywood and Ms Barbara.  (Travis)
