**Warning** This post is photo-heavy!!We just got back from visiting our dear friends in TN. We were there all last week and had lots of fun! We hadn't been back to TN in almost 2 years so it was nice to get back there again. It's amazing how many things change but yet how many things are still the same. Our old house is for sale. Olivia asked several times if we could buy it! I wish I could have told her yes! Here's a few pics from our trip:
Eating "corn on the cob" (isn't this cute?! the "butter" is actually a semi-melted Starburst and the corn kernels are jelly beans!) My friend Donna had this cute little treat for the kids.
And then there was Sprout Studio for Ben (an interactive play place) and Hannah Montana dance camp for the girls
A trip to East TN wouldn't be complete without going to Gatlinburg!
Check out this bear skin that we got to see. The park ranger was standing outside the visitors center with it. It was from a bear that was about a year and a half old that was hit by a car. Ben was all about the bears on this trip. We just redecorated his room with a bear theme. So he was SO excited to find a stuffed animal and some bear posters for his room!
The kids had so much fun playing in this stream that ran alongside the trail we went on. They got soaked!!
Oh, and one last thing, on our way home I somehow missed one of the freeway signs and ended up going the wrong way....for about 60 miles til I realized it!!! It's so unlike me to do that. I guess I was tired! But, if I hadn't gone the wrong way I would have missed out on this gorgeous view
It's too bad it had rained which made the view a bit hazy. But it was still beautiful!
I've spent the last 2 days trying to get back to normal...washing clothes, grocery shopping, getting back to school stuff ready....blah, blah, blah! I'm hoping to get some of these pictures scrapped soon...I'm going through withdrawal. I don't think I've scrapped in nearly 2 weeks!!
