Jared & I just got back from a little mini vacation to the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee! We love our kids, but man we just needed to get away for a little bit. It's funny we spent most of the time while we were away talking about the kids....
It's been a while since we got away by ourselves and we are very grateful that our parents kept the kids for us, it was a lot of shuffling around but they made it work....Thank You!!
We were gone for 3 nights and 4 days, and if we had the kids with us we probably would have stayed longer because it was absolutely beautiful there. We rented a cabin out in the mountains, it was so peaceful and relaxing and we were the only ones at the resort for all 4 days, there were a lot of cabins around us but the only one rented out was ours!! We went at the right time before it got busy!! The cabin had a kitchen, bathroom, a loft bedroom, living area, back porch with a hot tub...pretty much anything that you would need it was there! It did rain everyday we were there, but stopped just at the right time everyday so we could get out and do some stuff.
We spent a day shopping, a day up in the mountains hiking & visiting Gatlinburg, a day 4 wheeling, and a day doing nothing!! It was the perfect trip! 4 wheeling was the most fun! We ate at some really good restaurants too!! We planned on golfing one day, but the rain wouldn't hold up for us, oh well, we can golf here, right?? So we played 3 rounds of mini-golf!! HAHA!!
Jared and I had so much fun together, but next time we will take the kids! Thanks again to our parents for helping us out....3 kids can be a handful!!
