And during my too-short stay in the area, I squeeze in an afternoon with my adopted big little brother and best friend, Paul, and I get to meet his awesome girlfriend, Jennifer.


First, we get some Thai food and sushi in Maryville.  Yum!


Then we inhale some ice cream and drive up into the Smoky Mountains.


Paul and I in the Smokies.


Paul and Jenny in the Smokies.



Paul, Jenny, and me in the Smokies.  Time well spent!


Aren't they so sweet together!
