Gatlinburg trip

trying to get the kids settled down in the hotel room so they could go to sleep.

I had to get in at least one picture!
walking around by the river.
The kids didn't believe us at first that we would be in North Carolina that day too!
The kids up at the top--well, as close to the top and we decided to drive that day. they were surprised at how cold it was up there. it was 34 degrees and at the bottom it was 50 degrees!
This was our view from around 5,000 feet. Not very impressive. The kids thought it was neat we were in the clouds though.

This was our view from our hotel room balcony. The clouds were so low you couldn't even see the impressive mountain tops.
Those were some pictures from our very short "mini" vacation to Gatlinburg, TN. We only went because my husband had to drive that way for work so we took the fam with hopes of finally getting to see the Smoky Mountains he had been talking about. The weather didn't seem to want to be on our side. The trip was still nice even with the rain but the scenery wasn't quite what I had hoped. Luckily, it won't be our last time there. We'll get to go again!
