Last weekend we had the privilege of spending the weekend with some close friends. On a whim, our cul-de-sac decided to take a family trip to the mountains. Camille was lucky enough to find us a cabin with 6 bedrooms. It was the perfect size for our crew of 10 kids and 8 adults. We went up on Friday and spend the afternoon shopping, playing at the cabin, and shopping. Mary Kate hung with the girls all bundled in her winter puppy coat in the stroller. It was the first real cold weekend of the season. When we got back we enjoyed some relaxing in the hot tub and some games around the table. Just FYI, when the description says an eight person hot tub, you really need to be "close" to those eight people, and you do not need to have a fetish about feet if your going to put eight people in the tub,right Roger? Saturday we got up and enjoyed a home cooked breakfast that included the tossing of chocolate pancakes. We then headed out for more shopping. It was too cold to ride go carts on Saturday, so Max decided to go to the Dinosaur Museum instead. It was full of huge dino replicas and lots of information. Max was a little intimated by their size, but we finally got him to post for a quick picture. Saturday night we got the older kids to babysit and the adults (+mKate) were able to enjoy an evening out. We walked the strip in Gatlinburg until we were numb and even got to do some taste-testing. Then we headed to dinner and back to the cabin for more games and soaking. Sunday we took time for family pics with the pretty fall trees and then went for more pancakes. Yum! I love pancakes and BACON! Michael likes BACON too. Finally before we left it was warm enough for some go-carting. Quinton won the race and it was then time to head home. Thanks for a great weekend cul-de-sackers, we hope for it to become an annual event.
