Gatlinburg Day One- Thursday

May 19, 2009 — 2 Comments

We started out in a caravan of 3 vehicles. 7 adults and 3 kids 4,2 1/2, and 2. Yep that makes 10 us all together. Chris’ Mom, Chris’ Dad, Matt, Heather, Luke, Mark, Chris, Ephriam, Kendra, and me.

We spent about 6.5 hours in the car getting there with a stop at the Cracker Barrel for about an hour for lunch. Kendra and Daddy spent most of the trip talking with each other.Kendra may ended up being Daddy’s backseat navigator as she gets older. While I slept on the back bench of the van since I had worked the night before. Ephriam is just happy riding looking out the window. I even am happy to say that there was no need to play a movie in the car on the way down.

When we got there we unloaded everything and got things all set up while the kids spent a lot of their time exploring the place. Of the 10 of us only 2 didn’t stay in the same place as the rest. Chris’ mom and dad had a nice little place all to themselves. After we unloaded we cooked dinner. We had a great pasta dishes, garlic bread, and salad. Then we took the kids to the play area.

Then we came back and got our kids ready to go swimming while Luke got ready for bed. We watched big black clouds roll in and brought the kids back for bed. It would be the only night that they got to bed at a decent hour.

Here are a few pictures from our first night.

The mountain view coming in. Of course Chris’ took the pictures because I was still sleeping.
