I feel so blessed to have a large family, and even more blessed that we have the opportunity to travel together several times a year. We usually take one vacation in the summer, and a mini-vacation in the winter. This year we all went to Gatlinburg, Tennessee for a long weekend. We rented the Summit Lodge from Jackson Mountain Homes Rental Agency. We all fit in one house. In total, there were 23 of us! Whew! We did some shopping downtown, visited the Ripley’s Aquarium, and enjoyed a dinner show at the Dixie Stampede! If you’ve never been to the Dixie Stampede, I highly recommend it. My husband was asked to take part in a horse race (wooden stick horses). We had 2 two year olds and a 1 year old with us and they stayed thoroughly entertained throughout the show. We had a blast! I can’t wait until our summer vacation. Wonder where we will end up!
