A Quick Trip

Hope everyone enjoyed the three-day weekend.

We did although it happened to be a busy one.
G had a gymnastics meet scheduled bright and early Monday morning, so that meant an overnight trip was going to be necessary since we had to be in Knoxville, TN at 7:30 am.

Hubby wasn't able to make this little adventure so the kids and I packed up and left town on Sunday.

Here are a few pictures from our quick trip:


We saw a lot of frozen waterfalls even though the temp was in the 50's. I guess it takes a few days of warmer weather to thaw those out. They were pretty though.



One thing I learned on this trip - it's really difficult to get good, clear pictures while driving.


We made it to our hotel. I thought the room was cute with the apple green, black & orange.

Since my son was forced to come along on this trip and would be around girls & gymnastics all the next day, I let him have his choice of things to do once we arrived.

This may have included a trip to Bass Pro Shops and dinner at his favorite restaurant, Cracker Barrel.



Another thing I learned on this trip - it's really hard to get good, clear pictures while trying to be discreet in a busy store.


It may have included a little swimming back at the hotel, as well.



Before the meet started.



It was a tough meet with a lot of tough competition from around the country. She did place in a couple of events and came in 6th overall. Not too bad and she had a great time in the process.

We had some friends that now live close to Knoxville and were able to come to the meet, as well. She really enjoyed that.

One final picture from our trip to Knoxville.

What did you do over your weekend?

What a great trip. Love all the photos and love the hotel room! We left Saturday at noon after the boys basketball games and headed to the northside of Indpls to meet D's brother and family that were in town for a cheer competition. Enjoyed dinner at Cheesecake Factory with them and then watched the Colts win their game while hanging out at the hotel. Sunday morning we went to my parents church and surprised them and my sister, brother and grandparents. They didn't know we were in town. After church we went to lunch and then made the 3 1/2 hour trip back home.

My weekend was much less exciting...it involved catching up on laundry and cleaning.

Sounds like a fun weekend! Those icy waterfall pics were great! :) This weekend I'm gonna work in my girls' playroom & try not to talk at all, per Dr.'s orders for my laryngitis! haha!! We'll see how long that lasts with "Mom" not talking!
Blessings,
