Almost famous

This is the square in downtown Knoxville where we hung out the first day we were there. There are tons of little shops and old antique places around to look at.

This was in one of the biggest candy stores I have seen, with barrels full of all different kinds of old fashioned candy.Yum Yum!

Of course we had to stop and get some gluten free ice cream in the square downtown. The Marble Slab is now one of my favorite places to get ice cream.

We all decided to run in the 5k put on at the University of Tennessee Thursday night. I didn't get a personal best, but it definitely was a nice night for running. This was at the finish line with Chas and his parents. And no, it did not take us an hour to finish 3 miles :)

We are only pretending to be track stars.

The big day! So this is the visitor's center in downtown Knoxville where the WDVX radio station is at.You can see the Blue Plates in the background of some of the more famous people who have performed there before.

Behold the wall of fame....

Yep, we are on the air.

Of course I had to get a shot with the voice of the radio show...her name is Red. She has an awesome Knoxville tattoo on her arm.

We went to the fireworks at the park Friday night, so I got a couple of shots of some of the fireworks that I thought were cool.

Hanging out waiting for the fireworks to start.

This is the view from the cabin in the Smokies, what a great shot to wake up to. We were going to go on a morning bike ride, but it was raining, so we held out and went to Cade's Cove instead.

They call em the Smokies because the clouds rise up in the morning so it makes it look like the mountains are on fire.

This was on Sunday after church. We wen to lunch with Chas' parents and his sister and family at this place right on the Tennessee river. We went and fed the fish after and walked on the dock for a while. This is Chas' niece and her dad feeding some of the fish.

Chas was trying to get one of the ducks to goose Lynn on the bum, but he didn't quite get there before Lynn turned around.

So that is the rundown of the trip, the show went really well, and we got a lot of positive feedback from the crowd. It was a great experience to get out and play somewhere outside of Utah, even though we aren't Bluegrass :) And our pastor was there, Roy Gruber!! His wife's family is from Knoxville and he happened to be there on the 4th of July weekend. It was really cool to get to see someone from home be there and get to watch us. It's a God thing, I think.
