Hello all, I know it has been a really long time but I am trying to revive blog. I have recently gotten some inspiration to do that. So here goes. Life has been busy, we went on vacation a couple weeks ago. Gatalinburg was out destination and did we ever have a nice time. we hiked to a couple waterfalls, saw some wildlife including a bear mama with her 3 cubs, several deer, a fox, fifteen salamanders and some centipedes. A highlight of the trip was of course Dixie Stampede, the kids really enjoyed it and loved the food. I was a little taken back by having to eat with my fingers but I survived. One evening while we were there we decided to go up to Clingmans Dome which is the highest elevation there, our hopes were to see the mountains nestled in clouds but alas we were enveloped in a huge cloud bank it was, needless to say, a little disconcerting to be up there and not able to see. My husband expertly handled the truck and got us safely down from the mountain. I am going to close for now because I have children to get to bed, and I want to get to bed early tonight. I will blog more later.
