We have started an annual trip with our sweet friends on Veteran's Day weekend to Gatlinburg. This year we left after Jason got off work on Thursday and arrived in Gatlinburg late Thursday night. Then on Friday morning we woke up and joined our friends, The Pody's, for breakfast while we waited on our friends, The Steven's to arrive.
Breakfast at Davy Crockett's
A little morning walk around town
After our friends arrived we grabbed lunch and headed to the indoor waterpark.
Enjoying the lazy river
Sliding with the grizzly bears
Perfect play area for the little bits :)
Daddy and Caleb doing a little waterpark relaxing
After the waterpark we were all very tired, so we went back to the room for a nap. Our little man was so tired that he stayed asleep even after we put him in the stroller and headed to dinner ( this NEVER happens)!
Getting a GOOD nap
On Saturday morning we woke up and ate a small breakfast at the hotel and headed off to Cades Cove for the day.
I am assuming we didn't get our way about something in this pic
Coming up with a plan
The plan was to run in circles. I think they would run in circles for hours!
These two are both standing still...it's a miracle
So much energy
Loving exploring God's AMAZING creation
The Whole Gang
Our little helper guided us the rest of the way as we ended our trip at Cades Cove.
After Cades Cove it was off to the Old Mill for a BIG lunch!
Enjoying the Corn Fritters
We ended the day with a trip to the arcade with some snacks as we walked around town.
"I look like Scotty!"
Enjoying some popcorn with my little man
The next morning we headed to Log Cabin for breakfast and then attempted a trip to the outlet mall. The outlets were PACKED and our little shopper wasn't loving shopping so our trip was very quick.
Helping daddy find some shoes
After the outlets we headed to the Aquarium for more fun.
Checking out the fish
"Look, I see something."
Crawling through the tunnel to visit the penguins
After we finished our visit to the aquarium we grabbed a little lunch, a small photo op at the hotel, and then to the room for a nap.
This sled was too much fun to look up and smile
A rocking chair just his size :)
After naptime we met for dinner and ended our last night walking around town and snacking of course :)
We had a wonderful vacation with our little family and our sweet friends!!
The next morning leaving day. We woke up early and hit the road.
Unfortunately, all vacations must come to and :(
Already looking forward to next year! We can't wait!
