Happy Monday. Another Sister Trip in the books. We had a really good time. It rained quite a bit but it was not a total washout.
Gatlinburg Tennessee in the Great Smoky Mountains in the fall is such a beautiful place. But let me tell you the traffic there is terrible. Add in Fall Break for a lot of schools around the area and it was crazy. We didn’t spend a lot of time on the roads. We stayed at the condo a lot of the time. We did venture into nearby Pigeon Forge a couple of days.
There’s four of us that goes every year. We left on Wednesday this year. And came back on Saturday. The sisters picked me up last. It took a few extra minutes to get out of the house because all of the babies got excited over different people being in the house. Molly and Scruffy kept running in and out of the doors. It is about an hour and a half drive for us but we always stop for lunch and to do a little shopping.
We stopped in Pigeon Forge for groceries on the way to the condo. We always swear we can’t get another thing in the car and there will not be a spot of room left for the groceries but there always is.
As soon as we get to the condo we unload. Usually we have already done a little shopping on the way up so it is late afternoon and we just get everything into the condo and chill out. The next few days are fun fun fun. We just like to be together and watch movies. I took the production of CATS for the sisters to watch. They were not too crazy about it. My sister Sandy and I always work a jigsaw puzzle. This one with the Christmas cookies was really hard. We eat out a lot at our favorite restaurants. I of course did have an opportunity to buy a little yarn. I also took a bunch of knitting but I didn’t really knit a lot on this trip.
A lot of fun every year. It seems like we have more fun each year. AHHH until next year sisters.
How is your week going?
Love your day your way!!!!
