The details on our trip

Let me start off by saying although we are exhausted we had such a great time traveling and visiting with Ben's family! I guess that I will highlight the major stuff and if you want any ore details you will have to ask......
  • We left Wensday the 9th from NC. We were planning on camping at Yogi Bear's Jellystone park in Nashville but mother nature had other stormed so we ended up staying slightly outside of Nashville.
  • Thursday, we arrived to Missouri and were warmly greeted by a lot of Ben's family. We also got to celebrate Sarah's (Ben's older sister) b-day with her that night. Not to mention we met our new niece Bethany that night!
  • Friday, we took a nice train ride through the Ozark mountains. I didn't do much sightseeing between Kendall and visiting with family but it was so much fun! That evening we went to Lambert's which is a great resturant that is in very few locations.
  • Saturday, Ben got to go golfing in the morning which he enjoyed then we went to the actual family reunion. The theme was a hillbilly reunion (you'll see Ben and I in our bubba teeth when I get the pics loaded!) They had entertainment from Banjo Jack. Kendall had a blast dancing with her cousins, learning how to play the spoons, and just being a little flirt! We were supposed to go to a AA baseball game that night but all 3 of us needed a nap!
  • Sunday, we bid good-bye to a lot of the Denton side but got to hang out with the Beach side. My favorite of the day was going to the Bass Pro Shop and getting to eat at Hemmingway's inside of there. YUMMY!!! We also got to go swimming in Sarah's pool so Kendall really enjoyed that!
  • Monday.......ahhhhhh so glad it is over. We traveled 13 hours that day to our camp site in Towensand, Tennessee right near the Great Smoky Mountains. We only had 15 minutes to set-up the tent before it was dark so we pretty much hit the hay pretty soon after that.
  • Tuesday, we had a beautiful drive through the mountains and Gatlinburg, TN. I think that both Ben and I would like to vacation longer in Gatlinburg at some point.

So that brings us back to NC. We spent today recovering somewhat and getting ready for work tomorrow. We hope that ya'll had a great week while we were gone!

Happy belated birthday to Taylor!! Wish we could have been at your party sweetie!

Also, Happy Anniversary to Kritty and Chris on the 19th! (just in case I forget!! which is highly possible!)

I love the smoky mtns! I've made several trips to Gatlinburg throughout my life. It is just beautiful. Summer is my favorite time to visit. There are a lot of places you can hike to waterfalls and play in the water. I don't really love the touristy aspects, but you can't beat the gorgeous nature there!

Sounds like you had lots of fun. I can't believe you camped. I don't think I would have agreed to that being as pregnant as you are. Of course, when I was 30+ weeks pregnant I did 4 days at Disney and didn't think it was a big deal at all.
