Ladies to Pigeon Forge, TN, Nov. 2011

For several years, some of our ladies go to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, usually the first Thursday through Saturday of November.  That date is close enough to Christmas to buy gifts, far enough away from Thanksgiving and Christmas to not interfere with the holidays and past Oktoberfest, a costly time through the month of October in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg.  We have stayed in hotels in the past but for the last few years we have rented a cabin.

We leave on Thursday morning, laughing and talking all the way.  We eat, shop the outlet malls, walk around in Gatlinburg and sometimes tour the Church of God Smoky Mountain Children’s Home in Sevierville, TN if someone with us has not been.  (Tour reservations for the Home is required.) While in the cabin, we have all sorts of snacks and drinks, use the hot tub, play games, watch t.v., talk, etc.  We stay up late having fun with our “sisters”.

We had six to go this year and needed only one vehicle.  We tried to take minimal luggage as we knew we would be bringing our purchases back.  The food we took and ate, did not leave us enough space and the van was full in the back, on the sides and between the seats in the front.  We laughed and said we would be safe in an accident since we were wedged in with packages! At our last shopping stop, it was, “if you can’t hold it in your lap, you can’t buy it”!  Haha!

Looking forward to our time this year in November!  Added a few photo’s.
