. In fact, we love it. I know I have talked a little bit about our globe-trotting, but we do a fair amount of site-seeing around the Tennessee , too. And any part of United States is always a fun trip. We have been to the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg areas numerous times with them, and they have really enjoyed Tennessee Nashville and even . It is a beautiful state with a lot of neat historical and cultural sites. There's just something to do for everyone. Memphis
On this week's trip to Pigeon Forge, we did a lot of strolling around cute little parts of the town we'd never been before. For instance, we had never visited the Old Mill walking district. There is this great restaurant where we had lunch, and little old-fashioned shops with locally-made goods. And the restaurant shown above had the wide variety of traditional country fare, as well as a surprising touch of country club-esque cuisine.
This is our lunch trip and the beginning of our exploring:

We missed out on the mill tour. I don't even think we realized there was one until we looked back at this picture!
Upcycled wind chime, made from pots, pans, lids, and the odd coffee mug.
Better view of the wild life on the way into the restaurant.

Even though my family ordered things like dumplings, roast beef stew, fried chicken, and catfish, I ordered the veggie broccoli and almond quiche, with fresh fruit, and pecan muffins.

A cute tinman made from left-over food cans. My children thought the pull-tab nose was especially creative.

Here's a little taste!
