I think it’s pretty safe to say… WE HAD A GREAT WEEK!
- Build-a Bear
I was needed at work, so we didn’t get to leave Nashville until Tuesday midmorning. We arrive Knoxville early afternoon and surprised the birthday girl with lunch at Pelancho’s — one of Gwen’s favorite places. After a trip to the nearby mall, we headed to the pool…
On Wednesday, we drove up to Gatlinburg, where we spent most of the day walking around, checking out stores and buying delicious candy. But the best part was the drive to and from the Great Smoky Mountains! Oh my, it’s a beautiful drive!
That’s one tired, little birthday girl!
We meant to get balloons . . . but we forgot them. But the rest of the trip was great! Lots more swimming . . . and we had chocolate-chip cookie cake — plus an ice cream cake — to share with our extended family (especially Ms. Pam, our favorite person to visit in Knoxville).
Then it was time for the long drive back home on Friday evening.
All in all, an excellent trip — and an excellent birthday week.
Happy birthday, Gwen!
