We finally made it to October!! That means Gatlinburg!! Libby, Deb and I took off and made it in two days!! Lots of laughter on the way. That was the first color we saw. A man from a car dealership saw us taking pictures and came over and took this one. We did lots of walking before the rain set in. Then we drove and walked in the rain!! The traditional pancake breakfast and trip to the outlet mall. On Halloween afternoon there were all sorts of folks out trick or treating. This was a couple I ran into. Meet Shrek and Fiona!! And don't forget the Good Witch!! That's her with the hat on (in case you have a problem with identification!). As if by magic, the next day most of the fall decorations were down and Christmas was up. During our drive one afternoon we saw a drove of wild turkeys. I realize that's pretty normal for us that live in the country, but I never tire of seeing animals in the woods. I get excited just like I'd never seen them before. On that same drive we saw beautiful leaf color. And YES! We saw SNOW!! We rounded a curve and it was snowing! We were like children. That night it snowed over 10 inches. When we left this is what it looked like at the Tennessee/North Carolina State Line.
On our way to Atlanta, we stopped at Babyland General Hospital--home of the Cabbage Patch Kids. That's all I can say about that!! Well, it was an awesome adventure too! I've always wanted to go there. We spent a couple of nights with my Aunt Net and came home. It's always fun to travel but coming home was good too!! Thanks Deb, for inviting me!!
