We Escaped for One Night....Wanna See Where We Went??

Well, i guess most people would think about "escaping" for one night WITH OUT the kids...but yall know us...we'd never go anywhere with out them..... So, we surprised our 5 cuties with a ONE NIGHT get away to the GREAT SMOKEY MOUNTAINS.... We took them to the Indoor Water Park Hotel for ONE GLORIOUS NIGHT....Here we were arriving yesterday:They were so excited...To get to swim in the winter time is a big treat for them...and they LOVE staying in hotels...Here is LL checking out our room for the night:
And, we hit the pools....We let the kids swim till it closed last night at 10pm....
They had SO MUCH FUN (but yes, it makes me a nervous wreck to have them all around water..)
Even though I get ulcers around pools with 5 littles....their smiles and laughs ALL MADE IT WORTH IT:


And, here are my big girls "arguing" over WHOSE turn it was to hold LL....I'll be glad when Wes is here so there will be two babies to share :) .......
The kids woke this morning and hit the pools first thing AGAIN...then we dried off and headed up the road for a little putt putt....
yes, it is wild and crazy..but I DO prefer the dry land activities...
And, do make sure you check out LL's new shoes she picked out...We went to Target to get some new shoes..and I picked out some sensible 'brown' ones...LL says, " I don't like brown shoes...I want the pink "sparklie" ones..." and she puts MY shoes back and grabs her a pair of PINK ones....Well...you see who won that battle!! :) She's ONLY two once!! :)
Daddy takes his putt putt'in seriously.... :)
Ok, so we're back home...and I came home to some GREAT news..and some GREAT new pics...I'll share ALL THE GOOD NEWS in my next post...so stay tuned!!!! :) Hope yall had a GREAT President's Day too!! It was nice to just get away for the night!! Happy Monday to you all, kj

  8. We went to that same hotel last year spring break. It is a blast and so convenient for families with lots of kids. Loved it! Glad y'all did too! The big slide was a blast. Mama and Daddy kept making the big kids watch the little ones so we could do it again. FUN

  14. What a great get-a-way! I love LL's shoes! Just a question though..why don't you go anywhere w/o your kids? It's healthy to get away for a LITTLE while w/o them, even just a couple of hours!! It sounds like it was a fun day, though!!!
