We left after work on Friday and headed down there right away. My first priority was getting a snack, so we walked down the street and got an Ogledog from Fannie Farkle's. If you've never been, it's a hole-in-the-wall arcade that also has some food. I loveeeeee Ogledogs, but no one else was brave enough to eat one.
We walked around a little bit and I was so sad Jer wouldn't buy these matching shirts. Every party has a pooper.
The next morning, we all enjoyed a breakfast and coffee at Dunkin Donuts and headed to Cade's Cove. Jer and my uncle rode bikes while we drove the car around the park. I never would have made it eleven miles, so I am thankful we chose to drive instead. I went to Cade's Cove when I was little, but I didn't remember any details.
We saw this van and I'm thinking this will be us in a few years.
I enjoyed taking pictures of all of the cabins and churches. It was a perfect day; it was cool enough for the bikers, but not cold.
About halfway through the elven-mile loop, we stopped to have a picnic, watch a blacksmith demonstration, and look at the mill.
I was hoping to see a bear, but all we saw were two measly turkeys.
It was such a great day and completely different than what we're used to doing in Tennessee! After our all-day adventure, we went to Jer's favorite place to eat-Mellow Mushroom.
Then, I had the most delicious caramel apple to end a wonderful day.
The next morning, we woke up and ate (do you see a pattern here?) before we left town. These were the best crepes I have ever had!
I had the best of times! I am so thankful for opportunities to have weekends like this. I love spending time with my family and enjoying little weekend getaways. I was sad to come back, but so thankful we got to see Muffin again!
