Our 1st Family Vacation: Pigeon Forge, TN

Two weekends ago us Robinson’s took our first ever family vacation!  Granted, we did plenty of traveling before moving to Huntsville, this is the 1st time we have gone somewhere for the sole purpose of ‘vacationing’.  And that we did!  Hubby took Friday off and we left right after breakfast.

We spent lots of time visiting with friends of ours who are there for the summer as well as visiting Dollywood Splash Country, which is a water park that Little Man LOVED!  ( I think he wishes there were one in his back yard.)  We also went to the Dixie Stampede, which is about as Southern as it gets… (a bunch of ranch animals and people riding them around in the dirt while singing and ‘hollering’ all the while you are working eating a whole roasted chicken, corn on the cob, and a potato…with no utensils…yep.)  And all this ended with a video of Dolly Parton serenading us with “God Bless the Red, White, and Blue”.  Oh yes…have I mentioned that Tennessee seemed somehow way more ‘southern’ than Huntsville, AL?

Anyways, we had so much fun!  We are so thankful for this little weekend away.  A worthy 3 day vacation, 4 years in the making.  Here are a few pictures!

Eric and I had our engagement pictures taken in this same spot


At Dixie Stampede: Little Man actually liked the 2 hour live show!

Some of our sweet friends on SMP! How we miss them!! (and not so secretly hope they move to Huntsvegas so soon!)
