David & I had our "annual" trip to the mountains for our anniversary. We stayed at a bed and breakfast for the first time and really enjoyed it. The location was awesome! We just relaxed and went around the newly paved Cades Cove. It was much better! We saw deer and turkeys and about 4 bears. A mama bear crossed the road right in front of us to get to her 2 cubs that were on the other side of the road. On Friday night we went to Elkmont to see the syncronized fireflies. Never heard of it? Google it and check it out. Pretty cool. They have only been located there in the mountains and in southeast Asia. You have to go to the Sugarlands Visitor Center (get there early) and ride a trolly out to the area. They start the trollies at 7:00 and last one back is at 11:oo. It is a sight to see.
Here are some of the pics we took!

We're happy to announce that Justin & Kayla are engaged! Justin proposed on New Year's Eve and Kayla said "yes"!!
They haven't set a date yet, but are thinking the summer of 2011 when Kayla is closer to the end of school.
We are so happy, proud and blessed!

We went to the Mountains on Friday, the 30th and came home on Sunday evening. Justin and Kayla went with us and we really enjoyed the beautiful trees and mountains! As many times as we have been to the mountains, I don't remember ever going in October when the leaves were peaking. They weren't 100% but they were still very pretty.
When we got there Friday, we went straight to Cades Cove. Saw several deer and a lot of turkeys! We rode back to Cades Cove on Saturday to horseback ride but after the rains, the creek was too high for the horses to cross. Then Sunday we rode back out and Justin and Kayla finally got to go horseback riding and David & I went for a carriage ride. :)
Our driver told us that the Cades Cove loop road will be closed next year from March to May so that they can repave the road! He said that is the first time in 75 years that it has ever been closed. Interesting!! But it sure will be nice when it is freshly paved.

On Oct. 2 we left for Knoxville, TN. Got up Saturday morning and went to the Musuem of Applachia. It was really interesting, with a lot of old log cabin displays and a lot of old artifacts from the area. We left that afternoon and headed for Asheville, NC but took a little detour into Gatlinburg for some CarmelKorn and a wind chime. :)
Then back on the road to Asheville for a tour of the Biltmore House on Sunday. We really enjoyed touring the house and gardens! Beautiful!! It is so amazing what they could do in the late 1890's. The architecture and furnishings were great!
After stopping for supper, we headed back home. Got in around 10 that night but glad to be back in "our bed".

Last Friday David and I went to the Smoky Mountains for our anniversary. Saturday we drove around Cades Cove. Saw several deer and a couple of bears. The deer were very close up but the Bears were far away (just the way I like it). Saturday evening we went to "Magic Beyond Belief". Terry Evanwood is a really good magician and many times you ask yourself "how did he do that". We highly recommend his show if you are in Pigeon Forge. We came back home on Sunday and had a father's day supper with the kids, so we had a very wonderful, blessed, weekend!
Wishing everyone a great week!
