This year for Nathan's spring break we decided to take the boys to Gatlinburg TN. We left on a horrible, no good, rainy day. It was like driving through a monsoon. I drove until I hit a puddle that totally engulfed our vehicle. Then I proceded to pull over, hand Brian the keys and didn't drive for the rest of the way. But once we got to Gatlinburg the skies cleared up, turned bright blue and the only clouds that we saw were the big puffy white ones.
While we were in Gatlinburg, we hiked through the Smoky Mountains, went zip lining, walked through the town, and we went through some of the Ripley's Believe It or Not musuems and aquarium. The boys had such an amazing time. So did Brian and I. We were hoping to see a bear while we in the Smoky's as long as it was from a distance and we were either in a building or our car, but the only wild animals we saw were some turkeys. No, not the boys, but actual turkeys with feathers and everything. We also had a baby mouse in the cabin we rented but he was cute and couldn't eat my face off so I was fine with him being so close.
I think the next time we go (there will definitely be a next time) we will probably do the same exact stuff we did this time because it was that much fun!
