Happy Campers: Defeated Creek Campground April 28, 2013


Last weekend, we took our new-to-us pop up camper to middle Tennessee to get away from it all. I reserved the campground on reserveamerica.com a few weeks prior hoping it would not rain us out again like it did a month earlier. Turned out to be a prefect weekend weather wise. The only downfall was the low at night got to be about 38 degrees. It was a bit chilly but we had a small space heater to help keep us warm and it did a great job plus we kept snuggled up near the  camp fire that was going all night. Once the sun came out and took the bitter chill off everything it turned into a bight warm day. We were able to go fishing on the lake and got to try out our blow up kayak for the first time. My mother-in-law got to join us one night and I think she enjoyed herself also. Hopefully this was just one of many camping trips to come this year.

Over the weekend the husband and I enjoyed our day at the Knoxville Zoo. It is a prefect sunny 68 degree day, a great day to spend outdoors. Once the zoo closed, 6 pm, we were served a BBQ dinner under the white tent thanks to Elanco and Pettersons’ Vet Day at the zoo. This zoo is lacking in size in comparison to others, but it is decent and always improving. They are building on and will have some new attractions soon.  Here are a few photos I snapped along the way.
