Have I said I love vacation before? If not... I LOVE VACATIONS! Family vacations is one of my very favorite things we do as a family. Since we've been married, Dave and I vowed to be sure we took time each year to get away and just connect with each other. This became even more obvious to us to be done after we had kids. Getting out of town with your family, making memories, exploring the world, avoiding distractions from home, and just bonding. It's great. I love it. Did I say that yet?
This year we drove to the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee! We made a few stops on the way down to visit family & friends and drove straight through on the way home. This year our good friends, Jonny, Katie, and Miss Avery joined us too. SOOO fun! SOOO tired :) We stayed in a cabin in the middle of no-where and did tons of fun stuff! We did everything from hiking, water parks, amusement parks, aquariums,napping, eating, laughing a lot,date nights, and hanging out. The boys traveled amazingly! never cried once! Dave did a heck of a job driving the whole time too. (I did offer:) It was good. I think all had a grand ole time.
