Today we’re taking a look back to our trip to Gatlinburg, Tennessee in October 2007. Being a true Florida girl, I had never really seen the change of colors come fall. It was a beautiful experience to say the least.
While there we visited Cades Cove, drove through the Smokey Mountains to take in the scenery, walked through the old Sam Houston Schoolhouse, visited the Walker Sisters Home, lodged in a gorgeous log cabin complete with an awesome game room, ate at the “Donut Frier” (a place that Rich and his family always visited when he was a child), visited a very old Methodist Church, and took some time to simply relax.
(Rich & I in front of The Walker Sisters House. Literally put together with logs and mud and somehow standing strong.)
(The old Methodist Church- Men and women had to enter through separate doors- times sure have changed huh? Also, there was a working piano, old and out of tune but working. Donna played "Amazing Grace" for us. I get goosebumps just thinking about it.)
(Cades Cove- Simply breathtaking!)
(The group playing school. We were trying to show the typical classroom. Me teaching, Rich asleep, and Ashley eager to answer!)

A great time was had by all and we walked away with some pretty wonderful memories. I am so looking forward to the day that we go back for another visit. Not to mention you simply just don’t see colors like that here is sunny Florida!
