We had a great trip to Pigeon Forge, TN for our summer vacation this year. My MIL got us a nice condo and tickets to Dollywood for a few days. We had a really good time.
*I have to send out a BIG thank-you and a kiss to my MIL. Without her we would have had precisely ZERO vacations thus far. We are finally starting to get back on our feet after Brian’s layoff from 2009. Hard to believe it’s taken 2 1/2 years to get back to what passed as normal for us. But I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: It was the best thing that has ever happened to us. Nothing puts things in perspective like having everything turned upside down on you. God knew what was best for us.
Anyway, back to our summer vacation! We stayed at the Cherokee Lodge which was just a few minutes drive from Dollywood. It was absolutely gorgeous on the inside!
Dollywood was lots of fun!
On our last day there we went in to the mountains. Gorgeous.
