 There really only is one "place in TN where you go skiing" - we were able to go on a little trip, thanks to family and friends, to the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area. I'd never been there before (I think I'm the only one in the state who hasn't) and really enjoyed it!
 We went to a pancake restraunt one morning - Esther liked my chocolate chip peanut butter pancakes :)
 We could see the mountains from where we were staying - The hurricane had brought snow close to where we were and the high mountains had it, while the hills in front were still in their fall colors. It was beautiful! The pictures really don't give you the full effect...
 We went to the Sugarland visitor center - it was like a mini museum.
 Hiking with a stroller presents some challenges - maybe next time we'll try the wrap!
 Esther on our balcony -
 We walked around the downtown some and did a little shopping. You could spend days there!
 We hiked to the Cataract Falls.
 We didn't go in the Titanic museum, but stopped and looked around the gift shop and took pictures.

 More mountains -

 A creek -

Back home - there's a hickory nut tree in the backyard and we've had fun picking them up - they taste good, but are pretty hard to crack.
