Gatlinburg Getaway

Two weekends ago Jason, Jack and I met up with Hunter and Elizabeth in Pigeon Forge to stay at a cabin for the weekend! Our cabin was so awesome!!

When we first got there, Jack and I sat on the porch swing and admired the view!

Friday night we put Jack to bed and watched the Zoo Keeper movie (which was goofy and funny - "I can DO this!"), and hoped for a restful night. Notsomuch... Jack woke up and SCREAMED at 12am, 2am, 4am... and the paper thin walls didn't do much to block the noise for our other housemates. :( Sorry guys! 

The next morning we made breakfast at the cabin then headed into downtown Pigeon Forge for some outlet shopping. The boys shopped more than we did! But we all got something fun. :)

When we got home after shopping on Saturday, Elizabeth jumped out of the car and pointed out a big turkey! The boys got a chance to see it (I missed it) and then we got to see it fly away.

I missed seeing the turkey because I was too busy snapping photos of sleeping beauty. :)
I love how adorable he looks all conked out.

Another beautiful view.

Possibly my favorite picture. :) He looks SO BIG here!!

...And SO TINY here! Haha!

After a long day of shopping, then an afternoon back at the cabin (me and Jack took naps, Jason got in the hot tub, and H & L went for a run), we went to the Melting Pot for dinner! We all had gift cards that Jessica gave us for Christmas, so we decided to have a fun fondue dinner. 

Weeeeeeell... it was 8 o'clock when we got there, and our quirky waitress Tatiana said that it would take 2 to 2 1/2 hours for our dinner... Say WHA??? It was starting to get close to Jack's bedtime at this point and I just knew he was going to go nuts while we were there AND I had a headache that made me grumpier than one of the 7 dwarfs. 

Favorite quote from the night:
Me (as we were enjoying the 1st of 4 courses): "What do we need to do to let you know when we're ready for the next course?"
Tatiana: "You no like your cheese?"

Little man ended up being reeeeeally good the whole time.

The BEST part of the whole night, of course, was the dessert. Oh my word. AMAZING. When we go back, we will skip all the other stuff and go straight for dessert!! I could have licked the pan!

It ended up being 10:30 before we left, but luckily once we all fell into bed, Jack only woke up once and barely made a peep then. Whew! Thank goodness!

The next morning we went to the Apple Barn for breakfast, and Jack and Uncle Hunter played hide and seek - basically, lower your head then lift your head! It was precious. 

We had a wonderful time with Hunter and Liz!! We LOVE you guys!
