Tennessee Vacation

Over Memorial Day weekend we took a mini vacation to Pigeon Forge, TN. We only got to spend a couple days but it was a great get-away. We started out by going horse back riding. Olivia was so excited because it was the first time she has ridden a horse and she got to ride it all by herself (the guide did have a tow rope to help guide her). Thankfully she was in the front with the guide cause after 9 hours in the car with that jabberbox we were happy that someone else got to listen to her chatter for an hour. I told Mike to give the guide a good tip because she earned her money on that ride.

Next we went to Cirque de Chine (basically a Chinese Acrobat show). That was really neat. Olivia sat for two hours mesmorized. We weren't allowed to take our camera's in but at the end I got a shot of Olivia with a couple of the performers with my cell phone.

The girls got to do some swimming in our hotel. We got to meet up with some relatives that live just a few miles from where we were at. We got to eat lunch with Ken and Bev and get some pointers on things to do while we were there.

We also took a drive through some of the Smokey Mountains. Going someplace like this reminds me that I am so small in this world. God's handiwork just amazes me.

On our way home we took a detour to Bloomington and stopped in to see Katie. We took her out to supper and got to visit for a little bit before heading home to get a little relaxation in before bed.
