I'm Back

Bo and I enjoyed our days away, but I'm glad to be home. Here are some pictures from our trip to the Smokey Mountains.

We enjoyed breakfast at the Apple Barn, and then we went shopping at their store. I love their apple fritters there the best!

The next day we went to Dollywood. I love Dolly Parton, but her theme park has a lot to be desired. Maybe I went at the wrong time of year because there were a large number of water rides that I really didn't want to ride them this time of year. I'm glad that we went because now we don't have to wonder what it is like.
Later that night we visited The Incredible Christmas Place which is one our favorite places to go in Pigeon Forge. Bo and I could spend hours in there. Bo says that they are guaranteed to take some of our money. I wanted to show you this nativity set. Bo found it and told me he liked it. Then we looked at the price ... $25,000. Needless to say we didn't go home with it. Bo wanted to visit The Biltmore Estate which we both enjoyed so much that we would love to go back some day. We also visited the McDonald's across the street from the Biltmore Estate. This McDonald's is special because it appears on The Travel Channel's Worlds Best McDonald's show. It is also the third one I have visited on the list. Orlando and Rome are the others I have visited. I just wanted to let y'all know that I have the best husband in the world. He drove us an hour out of the way just so I could visit Jo-Ann fabrics. We got there 30 minutes before closing, but I had fun in my limited time there. So, that's our trip. Now that we are home it is time for laundry, putting away stuff, sewing of course, and the daily grind.
