Gaitlinburg, Tennessee—The mountains are breathtaking and the people are always nice. We travel there a lot as a family through the years.
Your favorite film and scene from the film:
The Sandlot—Scene: When Smalls learns how to play catch and his stepdad throws him the ball that he catches and hits him in the eye and said, "You gotta watch out for the curve!"
