Wow! I've missed being here with you every week, but I've been very busy with my other projects. Hopefully, soon, I'll get to visit with you more often.
Even though we've been busy, Greg and I have taken off some time just to be together and to have fun.
Just recently, we got to visit one of our favorite places, Pigeon Forge, in the beautiful mountains of East Tennessee. It is a fun place, and our day there was fun-filled.
We decided to go to "The Island" in Pigeon Forge since we'd never been there before.
"The Island" has shops...
and restaurants, like Paula Deen's brand new restaurant!
Of course, we just had to go there and try it out!
While waiting for our table, we enjoyed looking around Paula's wonderful large gift shop where we bought a couple of souvenirs.
We also made friends with a cute little fellow named Prince Charming, which he was.
From the gift shop, we rode the escalator to the second floor to the restaurant part. From there, you can get a grand view of the beautiful Smokey Mountains in the distance.
We ordered our meal which was served family style. To say it was delicious is an understatement. It was all so good, we could't decide which thing was our favorite.
While words can't really describe our meal...
Greg's face says it all-one happy, satisfied customer!
Since Paula wasn't there in person, I was satisfied just having my picture taken with this life-like cardboard copy of her.
However, if she had been there, I'd have told her that we'd thoroughly enjoyed our visit and down-home gourmet meal, and that we'd tell others about our fun-filled adventure to "The Island," and especially to "Paula Deen's Family Kitchen" in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee!
Positive thought: "Life is an adventure! So live it up!"-L. M. Preston
