There are many things to see and do in Cherokee, but we spent our time exploring the village and doing a hand-building pottery class.
Mom, Lindz, and Allie at the village gift shop!
You can buy some of the Cherokee hand-made pottery. The clay actually comes from their own river banks nearby.

Hooray for the Oconaluftee Village!
After lunch Allie did a kids pottery class at the village. She used real Cherokee clay and traditional techniques and tools to make her pot.
The finished pot!
After our day at the village, we went back and joined family for dinner and fireworks over the lake.
All in all we had a great, but weird, Fourth and are thankful for so many things!
