Twelve Years and Counting: A Week in the Smokies

1069336_4541955445929_1582771139_n (1)This past week we spent our family vacation a mile from Great Smoky Mountain National Park. We had a week of family time, swimming, hiking,creek stomping, fishing, gazing at the scenery, and go-karts.

Wednesday night, my parents offered to watch the kids so that Leilan and I could celebrate our anniversary (since we’d be driving Saturday). We were faced with the question of where to go to eat. Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are filled with “dinner shows” and national chains, finding a place for a quite dinner was not an easy task. Thankfully, we found the Smoky Mountain Trout House.

We arrived after the dinner rush to find the tiny restaurant with several open tables. The staff was more than friendly, the trout was delicious, and we had a great little vacation during our vacation.

On the morning of July 20th, we had breakfast with my family, took the kids to play in an arcade, and then took the photo by the sign. Then we kicked off our shoes and jumped in the creek. Happy Anniversary to us!
