Over Memorial Day weekend, we headed for the Smokey Mountains for a reunion with David's mom's family. This included twenty-three adults and children under one roof for four days and three nights!! Here is Kay preparing a meal for all of us our first night in the cabin (we took turns cooking each night).
To keep our sanity, we would all head out of the cabin in the mornings. For our first venture, we decided to hike up to the Laurel Waterfalls. The kids enjoyed any area where they could climb up and down a few rocks.
We also were privileged to see a bear during our walk. The bear was actually walking on the trail until it turned off and went down through the trees. You can see the park ranger in the picture so all were safe!
Our second day we decided to do try out a classic Pigeon Forge outing....putt-putt golf and bumper boats. Our family was the only one to do the golfing but the boys thought it looked fun (at least for the first three holes..ha!). Thankfully, they were free!
One night we headed to a creek and the kids loved playing in the water, finding rocks and of course, throwing rocks in the water.
I think Jonas could have moved to the creek for how much he enjoyed it.
One of many attempts to get a picture of all the kids.
Before we headed out of town, we stopped at a kids ride park. Jonas decided he wanted to do this...
We had a great time in the mountains and enjoyed spending time with family we don't see very often!
