I just returned from a great weekend with my 3 favorite girls…my 2 daughters, Jan’a and Whitney and my granddaughter, Phoenix. We went to Gatlinburg, TN and rented a cabin for the weekend. It’s only a 3 hour drive from our home and the scenery along the way is lovely. It was also Phoenix’s first road trip! I struggled a little driving up to the cabin. I didn’t think my Chevy Blazer would make it up the hill! We had a lot of fun and ate at several of our favorite places, Bubba Gump Shrimp and Bullfish Grilll. We also visited the Hard Rock Cafe and enjoyed live music on Friday night. We also visited the Hollywood Wax Museum – which was very awesome! It is a camera friendly place where you can take photos with your favorite characters. My favorites were the actors from Twilight and Leonardio Caprio on the Titanic. I took a picture with Michael Myers, but that kind of freaked me out! I usually get out and do some hiking when we visit, but since we had the baby with us I wasn’t able to do that. I did bring an exercise DVD and worked out at the cabin. We always enjoy the hot tub and every time we visit I want to buy one for us to have at home. Maybe one day….
There’s just something about visiting the Smoky Mountains….I suppose that’s why we go at least once a year. We always stop at Flapjacks Pancake Cabin on our way home. I love the pancakes with blueberries! We had a wonderful time as usual and look forward to another trip soon.
I hope you enjoy the slideshow!
