We're Back!

What a job! We had a great time and it was so nice to get away for a couple of days but there's nothing like home. Our trip back was just about as eventful as our trip to Gatlinburg. The older kids were wild while Allie just didn't want to be in the car anymore after three constant days of traveling nonstop. Bless her heart....I think she knew when we were going up and down the mountain and that it was going to take a while. She always seemed to do okay until we were headed back and as soon as we turned off the main road to head back up to the cabin she would cry nonstop. We actually got back home yesterday and she slept like a rock last night. She didn't sleep very well the entire time we were gone so when she hit her bed last night it was over. Caleb got sick while we were there and of course the other kids will follow suit. I hate how that happens...one person can't get sick around here without everyone else getting it. Caleb was the calmest for the ride back home until we stopped at a KFC and ended up dining with the Clampets....we couldn't get out of there soon enough. Needless to say when we pulled in the driveway we didn't leave again for the rest of the day. I have tons of pictures from the weekend but here's a few of my favorites. I'll try and go through the rest in the next couple of days. I have a ton of catching up to do on all of your blogs...I feel so out of the loop now!




Here's Caleb and Nendny(that's what the kids call her). I love to watch him play...he's so funny!




This is Lucas with my dad. Love this picture...more to come of them also...they had an exciting adventure and a real bonding experience over the weekend!



Here's Lucas and Jacob at Ripley's Believe it or Not museum...more pictures to come from there too...need to touch pics up though...haven't done any of that yet!



Love this picture....sometimes I just sit and watch David with Allie...I just love to see how he interacts with her and how much he is visibly taken by her! Love the absolute adoration he has for her!

Glad you're back! Hope noone else gets sick. You're right about the bed, kids just seem to like to sleep in their own beds (my dh does too, lol!).
