Back from Vacation





I am back from my vacation with my grandson and we had a fabulous time! Here are a few shots from our trip. We went to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and we visited Dollywood, which he just loved. In the last two shots, you can see my grandson's favorite attraction in the park, Adventure Mountain. Believe it or not, we strapped on our harnesses and trekked all the way through this obstacle course. It was scary, but lots of fun! Click on the pictures to enlarge and see how really intimidating this thing is (to me at least). If you didn't already, now you know how much I really do adore my grandson. No one else could have gotten me to brave that, and we did it three times!

So glad you're back Lois! What a beautiful place East TN is! Glad you had a great vacation. Did you get to see any of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park?

Welcome home, Lois!
You and your Grandson had an exciting hike up that amazing obstacle course, it must have been fun when you got all the way to the top.
I would love to visit Pigeon Forge someday too.

hugs,
Pam

First of all, you don't look old enough to have a grandson. Secondly, I would have tried it too! Glad it was fun.

Jack said...

You are one heck of a good grandmother, Lois. Thirty years from now he will be telling someone about the great trip he took with his cool grandma.

The top shot is just great! It's easy to understand why your grandson loved this place and hats off to you for going with him three times. :-)

Gosh,what a beautiful mill!!!

Lisa Wilson said...

What fun! It looks like Dollywood is probably a lot like Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO. We went to Branson a lot when I was growing up.
