So I’ve been on vacation with my mom, sister, and grandmother since Friday. Due to some issues, I was unable to post last Friday and prepare a post for today. But they’ve been resolved (at least for now), but I don’t have time to do a post about recipes or projects or anything. So here are some pictures! Warning: most of them are of the dog. And they were all taken with my phone.
These amuse me. I found this particular one in a gas station restroom that we stopped at when we noticed that the torque converter in my mom’s vehicle was failing. (Fortunately, it lasted another four hours so we could find a dealership that could work on it and get us a rental.) I don’t know why these machines exist, though. Why would I pay to have myself weighed? I can disappoint myself for free at home. 😛
We left my apartment at 11:30 AM and were supposed to arrive at our destination (Pigeon Forge) at 5:30 PM. The van breaking down set us back by nearly five hours and we actually got here at 10:00 PM.
This is the vehicle we wound up renting when Mom’s van broke down. It’s a 2013 Ford Escape. It was also far too small for all of our stuff–we had to ditch a few things. (The old ones are much bigger. But the new ones have a rounded back, which doesn’t allow you to put as much in the back.)
Brodie was good, though! He slept for the majority of the trip.
Isn’t this fireplace beautiful? It’s the first thing you see when you walk into the cabin Mom rented.
This balloon thing is so cool. I kind of want to go up in it. (It’s blurry because I was in a moving vehicle when I took it.)
Drove into Gatlinburg and got to look at this for about twenty minutes. Silly dog.
Adorable. I’m surprised I never see these back home.
New toy! Because we forgot to pack his usual ones. 😛 I sent this to Zach and he thought it was clown hair. “Don’t mess with me–I killed a clown!”
I have more, but they’re not on my phone.
This is probably what you have to look forward to for the rest of the week. 😛
