We got up a little after 8am to get ready to go eat pancakes at The Log Cabin restaurant. I don't know what it is about the mountains but it makes eating pancakes one of my favorites things to do here. Anyway, back to story. Tony and Gabrielle got in both bathrooms to take their morning shower but were shouting shortly because the hot water ran out. Needless to say, I didn't get to wash my hair this morning. Ugh!
The Log Cabin was packed by the time we got there. I thought we would be in line for a while which I was dreading because Tony does not have the patience of Job, but amazingly it went quickly. Gabrielle and Cassidy split a plate of Chocolate Chip pancakes, I had blackberry crepe pancakes and Tony had plain buttermilk pancakes with a side order of bacon AND a side order of country ham! What a pig! LOL!
After a quick trip to the grocery store, we headed to Pigeon Forge to do our favorite pastime there...ride go carts. We love visiting Pigeon Forge and riding all the different go carts they have. We rode some today that we hadn't rode before because we saw their advertisement stating that their go carts go as fast as 40 mph. Wow! Unfortunately, Cassidy was still not old enough or tall enough to ride alone so we rode in a double go cart. Even though we were in a double cart, we were still flying. In fact, we "drifted" everytime we turned a curve. What fun we had. We visited a few gift shops including going to the Old Mill. We had never been there before in spite of the many trips to Pigeon Forge. We snapped a couple of pictures to remember the beauty of it.
Next we headed back to the condo to watch the Daytona 500. I tried very hard to keep my eyes open but they just wouldn't cooperate so I ended up taking a short nap. Later that evening we headed back to Pigeon Forge to ride the go carts again since we would only have to pay half-price to ride. We stopped at Pizza Hut and ate and then headed back to the room for the evening.
Check back tomorrow for more exciting details. Ashley and her crew will be driving tonight and should be here early in the morning. Yeah!
