We’ve had a pretty full but laid back week here in Tennessee. I was ordered no hiking and to take it easy with physical activity by my doctor until my stent was removed. We would have loved to go to Dollywood this week, but it is still closed for winter. We decided that was probably best since I was supposed to take it easy.
We decided to go to the Dolly Pardon Stampede, a popular dinner show, Tuesday evening. It was pretty pricey, but we thought it was worth the splurge. Our kids loved getting their own miniature rotisserie chickens, and we all absolutely loved the show. It was entertaining and exciting for all ages.
Wednesday evening we drove to Morristown and enjoyed visiting my cousin, Jason, and his family.
Thursday I got my stent removed, we ran some errands and then the kids played on the really fun playground at our RV park. I happily went for a walk since I was stent free.
Friday afternoon we went to Christ in the Smokies Museum & Gardens.
Adult tickets are $14 each and kids ages 12 and under get in free. The museum was neat. We walked through viewing different wax figure bible scenes and hearing audibly about each. We all really liked it.
Friday evening we went to our favorite show we went to years ago, The Comedy Barn. We did a combo deal purchasing these tickets the same time we purchased tickets for Dolly’s Stampede. Our whole family got in for $125. We were very happy with that price.
The Comedy Barn is the funniest show. The type of humor gets adults and kids of all ages laughing. We laughed so hard. I think Ryan almost cracked a rib. He laughed until he cried.
We bought a few buckets of popcorn and passed those around. We all had an absolute blast.
The Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area is one of our favorites. If you’ve never been, it’s definitely worth adding to your dream vacation list. We have been here twice and haven’t experienced even a quarter of all that is offered. I imagine we will come back again…and again.
