Weekend Shenanigans

The weekends around here are getting better  and busier because the weather is warmer! Finally!

T-ball games are going great! Zane is having a ball and so are we! It's so great to get outside and help these kids learn the fundamentals! It wear Zane out! Last weekend after a t-ball game we headed up to TN to visit good ole Dollywood! Since the parkway is closed we had to go the long way around. We made the most of it and visited the Fontana Dam and drove up US 129, also known as 'Tail of the Dragon'. Talk about stomach turning....it was nothing but switchbacks for miles...and miles...and miles. Longest ride ever to Dollywood! Next time I'll make sure we stick to the interstate!

We found an awesome sushi restaurant in Pigeon Forge that we will frequent when we go too! Best sushi I'd had in a long time! I also ordered new glasses from Coastal.com. I am loving them! (they didn't pay me to say that. I didn't get a free pair either!) I was surprised at the quality and the extras they sent me! My other pair cost me four times as much and didn't even come with a case! Coastal sent a hard case and a cleaning/repair kit! Thanks Coastal!

   




This past weekend the hubs and I scored a date day/night! We had no clue what we were going to do so we drove around to find something for an early dinner and ended up eating at Wild Wings. We then went to Toys R Us to get ideas of what to get Zane for his upcoming birthday! Don't you do that on date night? haha Well the hubs found an electric motorcycle...


Yes, this happened! I died laughing! I felt like those teenagers that throw balls over the isles and was scared we'd be kicked out! Luckily no one saw what we were doing! We bounced out because they are obvi overpriced and we couldn't find just the right thing! Then we headed towards home. It was early so we decided to ride around some old stomping grounds and ended up reminiscing about our younger years on dirt roads and off-road trails. It was a great time! We even stopped to look at the stars for a while. Ohh the country life...I wouldn't trade it for the world!

  5. You know what, that sounds like the PERFECT date night! Our perfect date night is dinner, going and getting a milkshake-chocolate for me, vanilla for him, and driving through all of the car lots looking at all of the vehicles. Yep, that's it! Hey, it doesn't take much to make me happy!

  9. I love riding in our river bottoms on a pretty day. That's just as fun as a fancy night out (just in a different way). I love how it takes me back to how I felt when we were still just dating and didn't have all these crazy grown up responsibilities.
