On Vacation

As I compose this blog entry, I am on the road in the mountains just north of Knoxville Tennessee. Hubby and I are away from the kiddies for a short holiday. Our 23th anniversary will be in two weeks, but because of marching band practice, our #3 Son’s birthday and other obligations we had to take the trip now. We are on our way to Pigeon Forge and Dollywood. I would have really loved to go to Disney World, but we only have 5 days including travel time and can’t afford to fly (with the new surcharges and luggage costs can anyone other than business people?!?).

Of course, I couldn’t go somewhere and not take along a project or two! I already completed one, a little purse that I modified slightly to suit my tastes. When I get home I will post a picture of it.

I also brought a little embroidery project (really only an hour or two worth of work on it), but have discovered that bumpy roads and very sharp needles don’t really mix too well…ouch! I am sure I will have pictures of that to post too when I get home.
So in the mean time, here are a couple of pictures for you to enjoy that I pulled off the net (well, as soon as we get to our hotel and I can get online that is!!). Hope everyone is having a wonderful week and I will be back soon…better than I was before at both blogging (I am going to set myself a challenge of posting on Tuesdays and Fridays since I am such a bad blogger) and reconnected with Hubby!

I saw a show on Food Network about amusement park foods and the stuff at Dollywood looked soooo good! Eat as much as you can while you are there and then tell me all about it so I can live vicariously through you. :) Have a wonderful trip!
