4th of July Celebration!!!

Relaxing and having fun in the great Smokey Mountains.

I had a wonderful Independance Day Celebration!  My husband and I are spending the week in the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee with part of our family.  Our room has a balcony overlooking the little river that winds through Sevierville and Pigeon Forge.  We have spent a lot of time on that balcony this week!  Coffee and conversation lasts for hours while we watch the birds, squirrels and ground hogs.

This is a BIG squirrel!

These two squirrels and two birds are dining nicely together.

Another beautiful, peaceful view from our room balcony.

We love just sitting and looking down upon this peaceful vista.
The evening of the fourth of July we watched John Williams perform onstage during the Patriot Festival in Patriot Park in Pigeon Forge.  He was really good and we enjoyed it tremendously.  Then the fireworks started!  They were fantastic!  They played patriotic music by various artists as the beautiful fireworks display went on.  We don't mind the crowds and the busy roads to get to and from the fireworks display.  It is all worth the effort.  We love them!
