Take Me To Another Place
My husband and I went to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee last weekend for a belated 30th birthday getaway for me. It was absolutely wonderful and I’m already eager to return. We rented a cabin and took the day off on Friday to drive down. Here’s a glimpse of our weekend:
My hubby conquered the dragon, but I conquered the game! (by 4 strokes) We began on the more difficult course, but ran into a 7 member family roadblock, so we jumped holes and ended on the easy course.
Time for ribs, burgers, and hot dogs! We brought all our own food so we could minimize how often we ate out. Of course, we ended up bringing too much and couldn’t resist stopping at Big Daddy’s Pizzeria for some great eats. That place is amazingly delicious; everything is fresh and there is no freezer on the premises. Their food ranks up there with Giordano’s.
When in Tennessee! We found an amazing shop with a lot of leather goods. My husband got a genuine 100% leather jacket for only $50, I got a leather belt for $6. Everything down there was priced very low and we picked up a ton of goodies.
As you walk in, the illusion of an upside down building continues. Entering the exhibit area, you walk across a bridge that takes you through a spinning tunnel, more intense than any I’ve ever been through. My favorite part of Wonderworks was a rope course that was over the main part of the building. The hubby and I got harnessed up and proceeded to walk up a flight of narrow, steep stairs. Once up, we had to navigate from platform to platform over various tightropes, balance beams and crazy ramps. It was a bit frightening, a total adrenaline rush, and something I am dying to do again!
As with all good things, the vacation had to come to an end. We signed the guest book and were on our way back to reality. I am so grateful to have my husband and to be able to take trips like these with him. I loved every second of our time there. As for our next trip… I think I hear Chicago calling our name!
