Turkey Day Hike

This year we spent Thanksgiving in the mountains. Pigeon Forge, TN to be specific. Usually the family all travels south to spend the long weekend at my parents house but this year we decided to mix it up a little and head north instead. After stuffing ourselves with turkey, dressing, cranberry relish, sweet potatoes, pecan pie, etc., etc., etc... We all headed outside for an afternoon hike to try and walk off some of the food we had just eaten. Papa has made hiking sticks for everyone and the kids even had their names burned into theirs. So off we went through the woods and down the mountain until we made our way to the stream. It is very pretty with waterfalls and large rocks to climb on. On the opposite side of the stream from where we were there is a highway much higher up from where the stream is. A few unlucky motorists had the misfortune of going over the side of the mountain and the remains of 3 or 4 cars are lodged in among the rocks and trees. Judging from their appearance I'd say they have been there for quite a while.This is my nutty sister Laurie. Goof-Ball!!Alex is so handsome!
Nicholas loves to have his picture taken.
