Labor Day Fun!

Our friends Jared and Melanie decided to pay a visit this past weekend. We were very excited to see them and let them meet Bailey!We kicked off our weekend of fun Saturday afternoon with a visit to Duffield, Virginia for the Duffield Daze festival. It definitely provided opportunities for some very interesting people watching.

We were quite sad that we missed the tractor pull and slow tractor race. However, on the bright side we did get to take in the antique tractor show...
...petting zoo...
...and craft tables.
On the way home Craig decided to make a pit stop at the Natural Tunnel State Park where we rode the chairlift down to view the tunnel.



Later that night our friends Erica and Jason (along with their daughter Teagan) joined us for some home-made BBQ...

...and fire-roasted smores!


Melanie loved her birthday smore!
We ended our busy day by hanging out by the fire.Sunday, we dropped the kayaks in the Holston River. We decided to try a new fork of the river this time. We had a great time with the exception of Craig being ticketed ($198) for not having a life jacket in his boat... stupid Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency! That's my tax dollars at use?!?

That night we took Melanie out to dinner for her birthday (which had been the previous day) and then surprised her with a cake back at the house. Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera handy for any of the festivities.

We loved having Jared and Melanie visit for the weekend, but I must admit that we were all a little tired after such a busy weekend.
We hope to do it again soon!
