Mini Vacation Day 2

Day two of our little vacation we left Kingsport/Jonesborough {after a morning breakfast/business meeting} and headed towards Nashville.

We took our time and stopped at some flea market, antique, farmer's market, picker malls along the way. I will have to do a separate post about our "finds" as we stopped at a lot of places between TN and Albuquerque...Anyway...

One of the main reasons I wanted to do this little trip was to see my family in Nashville. About a year ago my family moved my Granny from CA to live with my uncle Jim and his family in TN. I was really glad they were all available on short notice to have dinner and visit with us.
Tony, me holding Addison (my cousin's daughter), Brennan held by my aunt Mary, cousin Vanessa, Sith and cousin Kelly, my Granny and uncle Jim. (Thanks to Vanessa's husband David for taking the picture!)
Me, my cousins and Granny
It was a nice visit. I am ashamed to say I had never met Kelly's husband, Sith, as it has been 20 years since I had seen Kelly! I had also never met either of Vanessa's kiddos. They were so cute, and reminded me how much energy little ones take, and how fast they grow! I was nice to get to know them again.

As you can see, I am a little taller than most of my family on my mom's side. When my Granny first saw me she said "have you always been this tall?". So funny!

We had to say our goodbyes and get on the road. We ended our day at a nice little campground just shy of Memphis {as we were advised by David to maybe not stay IN Memphis!}

Day 3 coming soon...
