The Bargerons made a get-a-way up to the Smoky Mountains for a weekend of adventuring, delicious food, and a perfect dose of Christmas. We walked up and down the streets of Gatlinburg, went into every little shop that even remotely caught our eye, admired all the beautiful scenery surrounding us, took a mid-afternoon nap, went into the most intense outdoor store we'd ever seen (which only heightened our love for hiking, by the way), laughed at all the ridiculous sights we saw along the way, enjoyed some yummy ice cream from Kilwin's (had to, of course), and soaked up every minute of time well spent with family.
It was so much fun to remember the last and only previous trip I took to Gatlinburg with the whole family way back in 2004. We were merely sophomores in high school with no idea that we'd be happily married eight years later. Ahh, young love. :)
