It was FULL of Tennessee goodness! Everything from Jack Daniels grilling sauce (which is perfect since today is my salute to Jack - check back from more on that later), to actual goo goo clusters like from yesterday, to moon pies (which I'm trying my hand at tomorrow), to a TN cookbook, a CD full of bluegrass music (which we jammed out to while we worked on our banjos this morning - more on that later too), to books, cups from the University, a cast iron skillet (and a shout out that Cracker Barrel originated in TN), to a map, to a TON of pamphlets, books, information guides and fun stuff from all the big cities. My kids are over the moon (pies, which we of course had to try out!)!!! And they are all over planning a trip to Tennessee now. Aunt Vickie (with a shout-out to Chelsee who helped) thank you SO much! This was awesome. Noah told me he can't wait to get home from school so he can continue looking through everything. Tennessee became tangible today and you made my job of bringing it to them so easy this week (which is an extra thank you from me because it's a really busy week around here) You'll have to check out all the pictures below to see what I mean. Thank you thank you thank you! I'll be back with more later, so until then...
