We had so much fun this last week. A long time ago (like 6+ months) long-time family friends of ours told us they would be in the area and we made reservations to camp with them. At first we were going to a Army Corp of Engineers campground, but with the government closed, so are those campgrounds. Debbie witnessed Tyler growing up in the lumber yard in Florida. She was and still is a second mom to him. Debbie and Vince are retired and are now traveling around the US in their 5th Wheel. It's amazing to hear about all their adventures.
We stayed at a place that wasn't too far away from where we live. The first day we ran over to Fall Creek Falls State Park. We love going there to see the scenery. I've grown up with that park.
Yep. This is what happens when Mom tries to take a family picture. Warren is behind Tyler and Ben.
Not too much water coming over this time of year.
Friday, we went over the mountain and back up again to Wooden's Apple House. I've heard how good these apples are, and boy, are they wonderful! We picked up a couple and some baked goods for the road.
There's always one of the bunch that doesn't want their picture taken!
On the way back we stopped at a gourd place. They had THOUSANDS of gourds. The gourds were so cool! The boys have whale gourds in the picture below.
And on Saturday, we came into town to go to Hickory Valley's Breakfast. Man, they do it up right. YUM! The boys, of course, got to climb on the fire trucks.
Then we ventured in town for the awe- inspiring yard sales. Wow. There were TONS of yard sales all along the main drag. Carson wanted his picture at the square.
There's always time for the campground playground!
And at the campground there were cows and a donkey we tried to fed. They were a little skittish, but so cool to look at up close.
