We just got back from a fabulous family vacation to the Great Smoky Mountains. I'll have to wait for my sister to upload some of her pictures from her camera because she's the one who got a lot of the good group shots during our hikes.
Oh the hiking...
In no comparison to my sister and her family (who hiked like 50 miles of trails last week with their 3 year old and 7 year old in tow), the Vandervorts hiked just about 7 miles total in the Great Smoky Moutains National Park. We hiked the Laurel Falls trail, the Clingmans Dome trail, the Baskins Creek Trail, and several other little jaunts in and around the park.
We also went mini-golfing, window shopping, egg-hunting, turtle spying, dogwood admiring, four-leaf-clover-picking, etc.
There will be several more posts about our trip...including a post dedicated to surviving 10 hour car trips with 3 kids under age 5 (just barely...Ian's turning 5 in a couple of days!) who don't really like riding in the car. Maybe there will even be a post with tips on renting a gigantic cabin and staying there for a week with a lot of your extended family... oh the fun! (and drama, but mostly fun...)
I hope yinz guyz all had a great Easter!
