ROAD TRIP: Pt 4 – Back to Knoxville, TN

Memphis, TN to Knoxville, TN (350 miles – 6 hours)

 

We got up at 7 AM and got ready for our next part of the road trip. We ended up hitting the road at about 8 AM but not without a stop to Starbucks and McDonald’s.

 

 

We had to drive through rain the entire day. It was not fun at all especially around the trucks. We made pretty good time to Knoxville (about 5 hours).

 

As soon as we got to Knoxville, TN we met the Broyles Family (Aunt, Uncle, and Cousins) at Back Yard Burgers. They own the franchises in Knoxville. I love BYB it so good. I got a bacon cheddar burger and waffle fries, then a chocolate milkshake to finish everything off.

 

After BYB, we headed back to their house where we opened more gifts. I got a $25 gift card to Friday’s from Aunt Phyllis and Sam and then $50 from Gram. Thanks Phyllis, Sam, and Gram.

 

After that John Allen challenged me in a round of pool (on his new 3-in-1 pool table, ping pong and air hockey). I won somehow by default of him not hitting the 8 ball right at the end. Then I challenged Kelsey to Air Hockey where I was loosing then Kenny and John Allen jumped in for a little 2-on-2, in the end John Allen and I ended up winning with the two in a row shot.

 

After all that fun, we headed out to the mall to go to Game Stop. John Allen and Kenny both had gift cards to use. John Allen ended up getting Madden ’08 for his PSP and Kenny got some game for his XBOX.

 

After that we met up with the Bearden United Methodist Youth Group who was doing a lock-in. They were going to see “National Treasure: Book of Secrets”. We all went to the movie then John Allen and I headed back to the house to hang out and play some more games. Kenny and Kelsey ended up staying and going to Ice Skating at 1 AM in the morning. They apparently got home around 3:30 AM.

 

It was kind of cool to hang out with John Allen after the movies. He is now 12 (as of 12/29/07) and the conversations are about different things now. John Allen is such a cool cousin, I am glad I got to see him this Christmas.

 

We ended up crashing around 1 AM.
