Vacation and Anniversary Getaway, March 2012!

Anniversary Getaway Gatlinburg 2012 Room pic
Well this past week my husband and I took vacation and we also went to Gatlinburg for a few nights for our Anniversary, while my Mother-in-Law kept the kids for us. We had such a great time.

This past week has consisted of relaxing, watching movies, walking (until we got blisters on our feet) when we shopped at Gatlinburg, riding the sky lifts there, eating a lot of tasty food and spending time together, its been great!!

Here is some of what we did (and there is more photos and more details of what we did in the Members Area):


--------------------------

At the Beginning of Vacation...


Morning Coffee Vacation 2012


I had lots and lots of coffee during the week...yummy!







--------------------------
Our Gatlinburg Trip


Dinner Evening 1 Anniversary Getaway Gatlinburg 2012We ate at one of our favorite restaurants, TGI Fridays and I got chicken and mashed potatoes. Then the next night we had burgers at another restaurant.

You will also see in the additional photos below the appetizer we ordered...spinach dip...yummy!!


Anniversary Getaway Gatlinburg 2012 Room picI also loved the fireplace in our room, and even though it was warm...we lit it for awhile...loved it!!

We also got the paper delivered to our room.  Each morning, we opened up the door and there was a newspaper laying in the floor right in front of our door for us.

We also went walking around Gatlinburg during the evenings and went shopping and grabbed some pictures.  In the below (additional photos...you will see in the) thumbnails, you will be able to see a view of Gatlinburg that we saw at night.




Giraffe at Smoky Mountain Knife WorksWe went to Smoky Mountain Knifeworks, and in the photos in the Members Area, there are photos where me and Justin both took a pic. next to one of the stuffed/mounted bears there. I thought this photo of the giraffe there was really cool though...giraffes are just really, really cool!

We rode the sky lifts!  I loved the sky lifts...and there was this shop at the top of the hill where the sky lifts took us to...you only could get up to it by riding the lifts and that is where we bought me as well as my Mother-in-Law a coffee cup.

We also have a few more photos posted of the sky lift trip in the additional photos below and we also saw a ground hog up at the top of the hill where the sky lifts took us to...you will see it in the additional photos below as well.




Breakfast in Gatlinburg donut and juiceWe had biscuits and donuts and juice for breakfast!






Fudge
We ate fudge...I think Gatlinburg has some of the best fudge...yummy!










Funnel cake Then we had a funnel cake, which Justin didn't really like so it was really me having the funnel cake.
