Labor Day 2009

Recently we went to the Smoky Mountains to spend a long, relaxing weekend with some very dear friends. We all had such a great time together. We met our friends Matt and Cecile and their son, Michael. Our cabin was perfect and the kids played so nicely with each other. It was just a wonderful little getaway.

While Jason and his friend Matt were at the UT game, Cecile and I stayed at the cabin with the kids. Of course, this is when Jackson decided to lock our bedroom door. Ordinarily, this wouldn't be a big deal. The only problem is that the cabin didn't have any room keys above the doorpost to use to unlock the door in situations like this. So we had to call maintenance to come unlock it. After waiting for a few hours for the help to arrive, we finally found a bobby pin that we used to open the door. Fortunately there were diapers and wipes to be shared and not one child was locked in the room. I don't know what we would have done if that had happened!

We went to Pigeon Forge one night and we went to The Track and rode go-carts. At the cabin, we had access to a swimming pool and a small putt-putt golf course. As the pictures show, I think that we will stick with baseball. No Tiger Woods in our family!

Look at the beautiful mountains in the background! Such a nice place to be.

I'm pretty sure Braden and Jackson could get into some trouble together. They sound the same with their curiousity/wildness/all boyness!
