Paula Deen's Restaurant!

Paula's restaurant....called Lady n Sons!
First they start you off with a pancake and corn bread and you put maple syrup on was good!
We ordered crab stew, which was not a stew but a most wonderful tasting crab soup.
We shared this meal and thank goodness we did, I was so full when we left, but anyway this is a crab cake burger.....the BEST! (even though this picture doesn't look that good.) Those brown things on the side are called French Fries, but they were different and AWESOME !

Martin Luther King Jr.

We got to visit Martin Luther King Museum, it was awesome it made me so sad how cruel we humans can be to one another. MLK was a great person and he DESERVED the Nobel Peace Prize.

We were so impressed with this beautiful library....he was a true humanitarian. I am glad we went here.

Ok looks like I have a few question to answer!

Why did you spend 6 weeks in the Pigeon Forge area?

We had no intention of staying in Tennessee that long but after friends tried to do Dollywood in two days and we saw how tired they were we decided to update on one day ticket for a season pass, so then we could go as many times as we wanted to without being rushed. The other awesome thing was that Dollywood has a whole month of Southern Gospel Music we had know idea we would fall in love with this music.....My favorite group was the Kingdom Heirs, we went to many of their shows....We found a way to avoid the $8 parking lot fee each day and instead rode on a trolley for $.50....
So every October is the Southern Gospel Harvest Festival. I would love to encourage you to think about attending this wonderful time in Dollywood.
The groups came at different times during the week. We downloaded the schedule and came and went as we pleased for 6 weeks. I will cherish this time forever......
