A Trip To The Mountains
Family trips are a great way to fellowship with the people you love and have fun. In the past, my husband’s family would take an annual trip. Since his family is so large we used to have a caravan of cars parading towards the beach once a year. It’s been a decade since our last trip therefore my mother-and-law and a few grand kids decided to reinstate the tradition.
Back in June, we took a family trip to Pigeon Forge. Pigeon Forge is a mountain resort city located in Sevier County, Tennessee. It reminded me so much of our trips to the beach with all the attractions and shops.
It was great seeing everyone again and all in one place. My husband has 4 sisters, there are 15 grand kids, 2 great-grands, and all us spouses! Since we no longer live near the family, we hardly get to see everyone, so this trip was special.
Our cabin named Movie Theater Lodge was beautiful and enormous. I had never seen a cabin as big as this one. It was 4 stories tall, had 8 large bedrooms, a shuffleboard and pool table, loud arcade games, a movie arena, balcony's to take in the view, and lots and lots of annoying stairs.
We grilled out and my brother-in-law made his famous barbecue sauce. I would have totally commandeered some to take home with us but he used it all. A group of us went on this coaster that dangled off the side of the mountain. Crazy scary but fun! I would do it again and that's saying something.
We took a couple nephews to a multilevel outdoor go kart. I won! Lol! I don't remember the restaurant we went to but they served drinks in the biggest mason jars I've ever seen. Even though we didn't do a lot of activities we spent some quality time with one another and that's the purpose of these trips.
See ya soon!
