Visiting Mom and Dad in Greenwood, SC, Smokey Mountains and Bowling in Nashville with the Gophers
In 2004, we visited Grandma and Grandpa in South Carolina for Christmas. During this trip we were joined by my sister's family which was great fun and was the first time we had been together at Christmas as family since my parents moved. After Christmas, we drove up into the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee to stay in a cabin. It was a lot of fun and Stacy's kids really liked it. We stayed in Pigeon Forge, so there was plenty of things to do to keep us busy. We visited many shops and even took Zach, Abbi and Christian on some rides. This served as a practice-run for our family trip to Disney World a year later. Julie and I and my parents, then moved on to Nashville, where we went to the Music City Bowl. It was a lot of fun. The Gopher beat Alabama with Marion Barber III staring.
