Vacation to Pigeon Forge, TN

PaPa & MiMi graciously took our family and Ben's brother's family to Pigeon Forge for the week of Oct. 15th-22nd. We stayed in a beautiful 3 story log cabin. Ben and I stayed in the loft and this was the view from our bed. It was breathtaking until the sun rose every morning at 6:15ish!!!
The living room on the main level. We had a night of karaoke.

Ben and his brother took all of the kids trout fishing. Z caught two!

M caught one.

We had the most AMAZING breakfast at the Apple Barrel. YUM!!!

Our visit to Cade's Cove..........Wow!

Wildlife everywhere we looked.

We saw a momma bear and 3 cubs climb down a tree and walk off into the woods. It was getting dark and I didn't have enough light to get good pictures of them all together. It was the kids 1st time to see bear in the wild and Bens' too!

There were deer around every curve.

Another "cold" day at Dollywood.
