Our Smoky Mountain Vacation

Maggy and I just returned from a great anniversary week together. It’s been 25 years since we both said “I Do” – and then she looked at me and said, “You Better!” OK, I know that’s an old joke. Anyway, we had a great trip. It started in Memphis, TN catching up with some old friends. From there we went to Townsend, TN. We made daytrips into Pigeon Forge, Cade’s Cove, and up to Gatlinburg one day. It’s good to be home though!

If you would like to suffer through someone else’s vacation pictures, you can see ours HERE. There is no way to know how many people have taken pictures at Cade’s Cove, but when you are there it seems impossible not to take them! I also took a few short videos as well, including a few of the bear we saw in Cade’s Cove! See those HERE.


Thanks for your prayers. We are glad to be home!

Thanks for reading,
