Deer hunting in WI

Jamie comes from a hunting family, and Wisconsin nicely times their hunting season to be the week before Thanksgiving. So, we headed from Washington back to Wisconsin for Thanksgiving and deer hunting.

Thad and Jamie with the doe Jamie got on opening day Jamie with the buck he also got on day two And what do you do with the deer? Cut it up for eating! The two deer gave over 100lbs of meat (that's JUST the meat-no bones or anything else)!

Visit to the gulf

Our trip south took us through Mississippi ~ so we decided to stretch our legs and dip our toes in the gulf.

Thad's toes first experience the beach!

Tennessee in the fall

Here are a few pictures from our trip through Tennessee, near Elizabethton where Jamie did his flight training. Sure is pretty in the fall!
