Valentine's Gift

As a Valentine's gift for Jay, my cousin, her husband and myself planned a surprise trip to Gatlinburg, TN this weekend. I am writing from the cabin right now. Sitting in front of the fireplace while Jay watches ESPN and highlights about his Colts. Janella and her husband are enjoying the nice hot tub as we speak. There are two master king suites with a jacuzzi in each room. It seems like a pretty nice cabin.

Below are some pics of the cabin. We hope to have some fun down here tomorrow. The scrapbook outlet and the Christian bookstore are on the schedule tomorrow. Jay and Jon are of course worried about where we are planning on eating. The Applewood Applebarn for breakfast and we are still deciding on our supper plans.

Getting ready to leave from Independence, KY

Jay is ready to head for Gatlinburg, TN.

The king suite and jacuzzi downstairs.

The fireplace in the upstairs living room.

The main living room of the cabin. There is WiFi in the living room so that is definitely a plus for bloggers like Janella and myself. GRIN

I believe Calhouns by Walden's Landing would be the perfect place for dinner tonight. Try the BBQ ribs or Trout. Also, lemonade with sugar on the rim of the glass. They have some desserts also. Calhouns also is in Gatlinburg by Park Grill. Or The Peddler is a fine place also where you can choose your own cut of steak to be sliced off in front of your table and cooked to perfection. 'Course, The Alamo has a Filet Mignon and Lobster Tail meal that is unbelievable. Or, it's back to the Apple Barn for Catfish( the best ever) or Prime Rib in the evenings. Don't forget Huck Finns with all-you-can-eat Catfish, Chicken, etc. Or you can get Lousiana Gator. I don't like to get too wordy so that's it.

The Applebarn was wonderful for breakfast. We went shopping of course and was able to get some peanutbutter icecream with oreos at Marble Slab Creamery. We are back at the cabin for a DVD then out for dinner which we haven't yet decided where

We had a wonderful evening at the The Park Grill in Gatlinburg, TN. Janella and I both had the BBQ ribs and Jay and Jon had the Panther Claws (chicken...weird I know!)

Cool - What a great cabin! Aaron and I LOVE the Applebarn Restaurant!

Is this why Janella hasn't been blogging!?

Regi said...

You will have to ask her why she hasn't been writing! GRIN. I do know she made use of the hot tub and the jacuzzi this weekend.

We all had a great time!
