Gatlinburg, TN.

 Saturday morning we woke up super early and loaded up the car and the kids to head to Gatlinburg for a super short vacation.

Seems kinda silly to drive 4 hours with two kids under two for just a one night vacay. Yeah, it kinda is... but we really wanted to do it. We had a free place to stay, SO we had to take advantage of the chance to have our own family of four vacation. Ya know, since we have never done it before :) It was a whirlwind, but it was totally worth it!

Our little troopers did a pretty amazing job in the car. Cameron was such a big boy and ate Chickfila for breakfast in his carseat all by himself and watched two movies (on and off). Rylin slept hard and was her normal chill self! 
When we finally got there, after only one pit/feeding stop, there was some traffic going through Pigeon Forge and through Gatlinburg. We weren't sure what we were going to do so we decided to head to Pancake Pantry and enjoy some yummy breakfast for lunch! Cameron thoroughly enjoyed his chocolate chip pancakes! Daddy didn't feel well so we ate quick and decided to head to our condo. (We decided it wasn't really our scene. Seemed way too crowded with rednecks and hillbillies!) 

We made it to our condo (thanks Grandaddy and Grandmother!!) and settled in. Of course with two little kiddos you get lots of down time... nap time! Me and Matthew are very low key people so we don't mind just vacationing by relaxing on a couch! 

The kiddos slept through a little thurderstorm and we enjoyed watching some of the World Cup (Matthew is obsessed!). When the kiddos woke up we got ready to head to the pool. It was great because it wasn't crazy crowded due to the storm! They had a baby pool, which was awesome! Cameron got used to it and enjoyed it. We are still working on getting this boy water happy!

{He still loves elevators!}

We kinda like to spoil the boy while on vacay so he enjoyed some sweet treats... like his first ice cream sandwich!

Sunday morning we got up and headed to the outlets. I'm pretty sure the Under Armour outlet is the only thing to get Matthew excited about shopping! But it all worked out, each of us got something! After shopping we headed to Joe's Crab Shack. It was delish, as always!

We headed back after lunch for the kids to nap. Matthew and I enjoyed a leisurely movie and just chilling! After a bit Gigi and Pappy and Elizabeth got there! The boys watched the US World Cup game while the girls played with the babies! We all had pizza together and then our fam headed out for the babies to sleep on our journey home. 

We so enjoyed our first ever little family vacay. Can't wait for another one... maybe a little longer next time :)
