Well we made it home last night, a little bit exhausted but in one piece. But we had such fun in Tennessee. Kevin is the big story here, about 3 days into our vacation we had an encounter with a cat. My parents have two super friendly cats, they are the super cuddly kind. This being said, they like to sleep with people whenever they can. One somehow made it into Kevin's room one night and scared the living daylights out of him. After the third night he would not sleep in his room unless I stayed there until he fell asleep and if he was made to take a nap during the day without mom he would need to be placed in the crib for safety. It was terrible, I couldn't believe it. He was just scared to death that cat would come in and wake him up again. That was an interesting curve ball to our trip... But he is not a scaredy cat all the time we were able to go to Dollywood twice while we were out there, all my family get free passes from work. At Dollywood, Kevin was the thrill seeker he rode every ride he could. He even put his hands up on the veggie tales roller coaster, I didn't even do that... He must get this side of himself from his dad... He even rode rides that no one could ride with him because we were too tall. I even got a little teary eyed at my little tiny big boy.
1. Kevin and Grandpa on roller coaster 2. Kevin rides alone 3. the Coal train which was so exciting because it was so loud.
1. Aunt Rachie and Kevin (She will be married with two kids in January...she opted for the insta-family) 2. Aunt Jessie will also have a family in January as little baby will be coming then. 3. Begging for Watermelon from Grandma.
It was so fun to see all the fam, except sis, in San Diego, (she had a freak accident where she sprained her ankle the morning she was supposed to fly out, we missed her bunches)
We had fun but are very glad to be home where naps are regular and so is bed time.
