yep. I am here up north in Tennessee. Kevin, Kendall (brother-in-law), Jared (cousin-in-law), and I left our little town behind last night and traveled to Tennessee! We got up here to Gatlinburg around 8:30. I am such a lucky girl. the three guys all sat in the front on the bench seat while I got the entire back seat to myself to sleep. aren't they the best? haha. once we got up here, we ate breakfast at cracker barrel, so yummy! then we traveled for a little bit and then stopped at a knife museum. which was incredibly boring yet incredibly interesting at the same time, if that is possible. After we (finally) left there, we continued on our way and drove through pigeon forge and on to gatlinburg! it was still fairly early, so the first thing we did was go straight to ober gatlinburg. this place holds good memories for my hubby and his brother. but oh my goodness, there was snow! like for snow skiing. something I'm not so interested in, but still kind of surprising. the boys wanted to try to snowboard but it is closed until tomorrow for some reason. we did go down the slide thingie with the sleds. I'm not sure what all of that is called. I do know it is fun, and we did it twice, and it is very scary too. my favorite part is riding on the ski lift! I love looking down and riding peacefully up the mountain. after being there for several hours, we finally made our way back down and drove to pigeon forge and got a hotel room. which made me a very happy girl because I got to take a shower and wash my hair. it was all icky from sleeping in the car all night. and now I am currently sitting in the dark while the boys sleep. hopefully they'll wake up soon because I'm hungry.
this trip was pretty spur of the moment and I am having a total blast! I didn't expect it to be as cold as it is. luckily I packed jeans instead of shorts! and I did get a cute beanie. it's purple striped. I'm not sure what the rest of the night holds, or when we will be going home. I do know I miss my little Roscoe baby.
one day I will figure out how to get pictures up here. pictures are more fun to look at than read my words. :)
