Trip to the Mountains

The day after Christmas, we loaded the boys and headed for the mountains. Roger was going to be off the majority of the next week anyway, so we decided we needed to just get away. We left at 4:30 that morning. We really took our time on the trip up...we stopped at a few stores so that I could check out the after-Christmas sales. I didn't find much at all.
Mama and Daddy have a week at a timeshare between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg...that was our home for the week. It has an indoor waterpark (but it was still too cold for us) and an outdoor playground. The cabins are very nice with full bathrooms and a kitchen. I did cook a good bit while we were there...we were really trying not to spend a lot...and eating out can add up quick. Mama & Daddy had some free tickets to play mini golf...that was fun...
I was able to find Dollywood tickets online. We ended up turning them into season passes since we plan to go there again to vacation in the summer. We'll have an additional passenger for that trip :)
I have tons more pictures but this is taking a while to upload images for some reason today. We stayed until the day after New Years and then headed home. It was a great trip! I really enjoyed spending time with my family away from the normal routine! So our next big thing will be the arrival of _________ ___________...I'll have to tell you what name we've picked for Baby Girl Lofton???????
