I’m baaaack!!!

A vacation with kids, as you all may know, is not a relaxing sort of trip! It is a go, go, go kind of trip! We stayed busy and had a lot of fun. We actually got home on Sunday evening, but I’m still trying to get back on schedule around here.

We stayed in a log cabin in the mountains and it was gorgeous! This photo was taken at the end of our driveway!

The cabin

This photo was taken from the deck. What a view! I just love the mountains and I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.

The View!

This is a picture taken while we played in the hot tub. My sons first time in one (the heat was turned down, but still warm). He had so much fun splashing in the water! He’s going to be a water lover for sure!

Playing in the hot tub!

We spent two days at Dollywood. Wouldn’t you know that the first day there both of my kids ran a fever and were just feeling crummy. But, they were all better and ready to play on Friday! My little man’s first ride on the little ducks! He loved it!

Here is my nephew and daughter posing with the large veggies! I think my nephew might’ve been a little hungry! 🙂

Those are some HUGE vegetables!

Saturday, after the guys returned from golf, my hubby and I took my nephew and daughter to play some mini-golf. And, oh my, my husband is being attacked by a gator. But, never fear, my daughter will save him!

Oh No!

Sunday, while the guys were golfing AGAIN, my mil and I took the kids to Wonder Works! This place was so much fun.

We spent four hours there and still didn’t get a chance to see and do everything they had to offer! Me, my daughter, and nephew did play Laser tag and I won!!! 🙂 My daughter was so adorable running around trying to shoot people with her laser gun and that big vest on – I just wish I had a picture of it! There was just so much to do and I hope to go back soon! There wasn’t much for the little man, but he loved dancing on the piano and making music!!!

A Pianist?

We really had a great time, but it was exhausting! It was so nice to get away for a few days and just have fun! It didn’t hurt that I had my mil to help take care of the little one so I could play more with the big kids! But, I’m glad to be back and I hope to talk with you all soon!P.S. Thanks An Ordinary Mom for playing along with the music meme…I loved your answers!

I am looking forward to it and hope that the weather is nice! Do you have Dollywood passes? Hmmm, that could be some AWESOME day trips this summer, huh?

  6. wow becky! NICE!! i also LOVE the mountains and throw a hot tub in there and you got what I would label as PARADISE!!

    it’s always special when i can get to the mountains…where i live — its as flat as a pancake. we have an expression, “its so flat — you can watch your dog run away for 3 DAYS!”

  7. Ooh, great pictures and it sounds like you guys had a terrific time! That cabin looks gorgeous sitting up there! We’re going in late May, and I’ll have to add Wonder Works to the list of possible places for the kids to go (nieces and nephews). There’s so much to see and do up there!!!

    P.S. Glad you’re back though, you were missed!
