After much thought and planning, Megan & I created what we believed would be the perfect Day #1 for our Tennessee trip. Horseback riding in the morning and then exploring the nearby caverns. The kids couldn’t wait to ride a horse in the mountains.
We arrived at the stables and one by one, they saddled up a horse for each of us.
Gerrit was the first to get his horse and of course the most timid. Sugarfoot was the ideal choice for him… 30 years old and slow as molasses. Perfect!

After our trail ride was done, we dismounted and headed to the caverns for some underground exploration.
The kids drank from the fresh spring in the cavern.
And made a wish in the accidental wishing well.
Gerrit does seem like a deer caught in headlights in this picture which actually makes it my favorite one.
After the caverns, we decided to visit some of the cute shops. This here is a bear made of hay, eating an ice cream cone. Which would imply that you, as a person could eat one as well. You’d be wrong.
Oh my… have you ever seen such adorable, ferocious, little people before?
As we made our way back to town, winding and weaving through the mountainside, we saw a small restaurant on the side of the road. I say restaurant but that’s being generous. Really, it was a shed that sold food and drinks but most importantly… a beautiful view. We chose to partake and meandered down to the water to relax for a bit.
The kids immediately spotted 2 snakes and amazingly, no one screamed. Not even us women.
Cheers to a wonderful day 🙂
