We took a long weekend for Independence Day and spent it in Pigeon Forge. We didn’t have anything big planned really, we just wanted to spend some quality time together and relax. We stayed Thursday through Sunday and it was wonderful. A very much needed break for us all.
I had Zumba Wednesday night burned 440 calories. When I got back home I still had a bunch of energy so I did another workout and burned 318 calories. I’m doing my best to stick to this. It’s hard but it makes me feel so much better!
Rylan slept with us Wednesday night. Jason had to run into the office for a bit and I was up cleaning and loading the car so he was able to sleep in. Milo (our Manx cat) loves to cuddle and took advantage of Rylan sleeping in. He cuddled with him for hours. He’s the sweetest cat! Rylan just loves him! And check out that bed hair!
Friday morning we headed out to Tanger Outlet. I found some great deals at the Under Armor Outlet. 3 pairs of capri pants & 4 pairs of socks 40% off. 2 Tanks $12.95 each and a hair ties $4.19 for a pack of 6. None of us were really in a shopping mood so after that we decided to go for lunch. They now have a Panda Express in Pigeon Forge so we ate there.
After lunch we weren’t sure what to get into so we just drove. We finally decided on the Titanic exhibit they have. I’m glad we did. It was great! Jason and I both thought it would be kind of cheesy but we weren’t sure. It turned out great though. We went to a Titanic exhibit in Vegas a few years ago (located in the MGM Grand) and we both thought this one was better.
They had a man there that had actually seen the Titanic wreckage in a submarine. His name is Lowell Lytle and he has lived a very interesting life. I loved listening to him.
He is a gifted storyteller and he has a great testimony too!
I made sure to work out while I was gone both on Friday and Saturday. The gym didn’t have a recumbent bike so I had to settle for an elliptical. They aren’t my favorite but the beat the “dreadmill” any day. I also brought my own free weights and my Zumba soundtrack.
We ate at the Hard Rock Cafe and it was delicious as usual. I had to get this picture of Rylan…it was too cute! No, we don’t let hm put his feet on the table but I caught this pic and it was just too good.
Sunday we came back home. In the midst of packing I look over and see this little guy hanging out watching cartoons in Daddy’s suitcase!
