Hub wanted to get away for a few days....so we left Thursday. We headed to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee for a little 'down time.'
The weather has been extremely hot and I do believe it can make a person a little cranky. We both decided on Tuesday to try and get a few days alone. Both girls are back home-after college-#1 doing rotations and #2 trying to get in grad school and I have kept grandson this summer. We all went to the beach in June and had a wonderful time, but sometimes one needs to just get away for a few days.
Hub cannot go to Pigeon Forge without eating at Blue Moose. This place is famous for burgers and wings. This was our first stop.
Then we drove into Gatlinburg. I was so amazed how crowded it was. In fact it was more crowded than Myrtle Beach.
Next a little shopping and then some relaxing.
Gazing at the mountains is so magnificent! It had been raining and the fog was lifting. I can sit for hours here and be very content. It did take some coaxing from hub for me to get up and get moving.
We stopped by the Farmer's Market and ..,,,,,
Guess what I will be having for dinner in a couple of days!
Hub also had to purchase some
Strawberry flavor...hum guess it might taste good..
We are planning on going back to Pigeon Forge the first week in August and bringing grandson. So I am gearing up for an exhaustively time with him.
Speaking of grandson-his father was in a golf tournament this weekend so we kept him Saturday and Sunday. We took him to a small carnival in town on Saturday night. I remember when carnivals were so big and rides costs 25 cents.
Sunday night our 'little children's group' made pretzels to show how one can pray-crossing arms The children enjoyed this and it lasted longer than anticipated.
Window cleaning is calling me---have put this off long enough. Count down is on----:( only 3 weeks left of my summer vacation!
Enjoy your week!
