Smoky Mountain Getaway

A year ago we tried something new…my wife and I agreed to share a big cabin in the Smoky Mountains (Pigeon Forge) with my wife’s sister and their two cousins and husbands. The thinking was, “Remember how much fun we girls used to have when we were little? We just don’t spend time together any more. Let’s plan a getaway.”

Although I thoroughly enjoy the company of all involved, I confess I had my doubts. “What”, I thought, “if these girls discover that they really don’t like each other? After all, it has been —– years since they were girls. Life has changed for all of them. They aren’t the same little girls any more. We might get cooped up together in this huge cabin and regret it.”

Fortunately, my concerns were unfounded. All eight of us had a fabulous time shopping (well, tools for the guys) and playing games (Mad-lib CAN make your sides hurt from laughter) and eating and hanging out.

In fact, we had so much fun that we decided to make to do it again this year. So we are leaving Saturday for a few days of fun and games and relaxation.

This time I don’t have any doubts.
