Hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!
There wasn't much time for editing pictures and blogging. And then while we were in Virginia, there was no Internet...but we finally got back home yesterday about 2 p.m. yesterday. After over 2,000 miles, staying at 4 hotels and 3 homes, we made it back home. Quite an adventure filled with seeing friends and family...and some family that I haven't seen in over 30 years...more to come during the week.
Here is our stop at Dean and Kathy's house. Lots of red, but not for Christmas, for Roll Tide Roll...ALABAMA
We had a lot of fun...hanging out, goofy around...and Emma had a blast with Kathy...also got a little jealous when their granddaughter came by...but Emma slowly started to get a little better with that. I think Kathy has lots of love to share for all!
Thank you again, Dean and Kathy, for letting us stay with you guys and thank you for making Emma's visit extra special with all of the pictures and presents...
We left early that afternoon and even though out of our way, we wanted to stay one night at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel...now I love how beautiful it is, but I'm still not crazy about how big and how difficult it can be to get around. The last time I was here was for a scrapbooking event. My foot injury was not healed, and it was a huge mistake to come. I ended up getting a scooter! So embarrassing. Dennis thought I was over exaggerating how much I had to walk around or limp around...but then once he stayed here...he gave me a hug and understood.
It is beautiful though...we ate good and also did a horse and buggy ride (wouldn't do again, but Emma enjoyed it).
Dreamworks movie characters were there. And even though Emma has not seen the movies, which aren't appropriate for her right now anyway, she loved seeing them. For Gingy (the gingerbread man), they said she was the most excited little girl they had seen. She doesn't look like it in all the photos, but she was having a blast and also stayed in her part Cinderella, part Snow White costumes from Kathy. She also wouldn't take the new Winnie the Pooh slippers off that Paw Paw had given her. Emma sets her own style...so sweet.
More from Thanksgiving day and stopping to see more family on the way back home...
