We always ride the strip in Pigeon Forge when we arrive, to see what has changed since our last visit. This has been a busy year and we have not been able to visit for quite a few months. There were a couple new restaurants and one new attraction. The Tomb - located in Walden's Landing..
Of course, loving all things Egyptian, I had to check it out. We decided to wait for the rest of the family to actually partake of the attraction, but we did check out the lobby.
The new movie theatre at Walden's Landing is now open, so we decided to see the movie Cowboys and Aliens...we love a good Western and we really enjoyed this movie.
The Alien portions are not overdone and we found the movie to be refreshing and entertaining....Mike, who is not a big movie goer, even said it was the best movie he had seen in a long time.
We visited the Harley Davidson store and bought some more shiny stuff and really, really soft cloths so that Mike can continue to polish the paint off of his new Streetglide....I don't know if I mentioned, but his Softail Classic was stolen a few weeks ago as he was attending a downtown blockparty event. Just in case you don't speak motorcycle, both the Streetglide and Softtail Classic are types of motorcycles....I wouldn't know that if I did not have a husband who absolutely loves them.
Any visit to Pigeon Forge must include a visit to The Christmas Place. We all know how hot it has been here in Tennessee as well as many places around the Country. Take a look at this picture and you can see how the North Pole folks are dealing with the heat.
Right about now, 5 cents for a snowball sounds like the best deal ever....give me a $1 worth, please.
Stepping through the door into the North Pole, we find it much cooler....look how happy Santa is standing beside a snow covered tree. I'm seeing lots of these flocked trees this year and looks like they are going to be very popular...I've been thinking about getting one for the last couple years. This might be the year for a new tree.
I love what they can do with styrofoam to make the displays look so gorgeous.
I love this tree in a wagon...I don't know why but I just think it is so stinking cute.
I love the glass shelves resting on cylinder glass containers filled with faux candies. This would be a great idea to adapt to a Holiday buffet table. On a smaller scale, this could be used for a beautiful themed dessert display or risers for a food buffet.
I hope you enjoyed sharing our trip...now, let's play a game and enjoy the rest of the day.
