Pigeon Forge Day 4-MagiQuest and Applewood Farmhouse

 We woke up to rain again on Monday.  We googled about 100 times what to do in Pigeon Forge when it's raining and MagiQuest kept coming up.  This too is a must for kids.  They had a few different things to do, we started with the MagiQuest.  The best way to describe this is a scavenger hunt with wands.  They have something similar, or maybe even same thing at Great Wolf Lodge. I may have enjoyed this more than the kids, kinda geeky but I'll own it.

We did the wand quest, a mirror maze, black light mini golf, and the vault challenge.  The vault was awesome, could have done it about half a dozen times.  It's a dark hallway with laser beams and you have to try and maneuver your way through them.  Each time you hit a beam it adds so many seconds on to your time.  Cooper killed it.  I beat Steve and I even went through the challenge with Cameron.

We spent most of the morning there so we had some exhausted kids that day.  Cooper almost fell asleep on the way home, took a nap at the cabin and I could barely wake him up.  Too much fun for that kid.

While we were out that morning we missed some excitement.  A tree fell right next the cabin.  Just a few feet from the cabin.  Just snapped in two.

For dinner we took the suggestion of my friend Stefanie and tried out Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant.  I'm not ashamed to admit my dinner took two plates.  Hey, it's vacation.

Since we were leaving the next morning we called it an early night and packed up.  
This all wouldn't have been possible without the generosity of my in-laws for renting the cabin for us and for Steve's PRN job.  Many nights he doesn't get home until after dinner but when it gives us the opportunity to get away as a family it makes it all worth it.

I'm so glad you all had a great time! Aside from the tree snapping in half, no wi-fi then no electric it sounds great! ;)
(When our power goes out - we are in the same shape you were in w/ water bc we have a well. No electric to run the pump = no water. It's horrible!)
