This weekend the hubby and I left both little ones with his Mom and headed to Gatlinburg, TN with our friends. I stressed and worried about the day and how we would all get through it. Even though I knew in my heart that all would be well. I'm just a worrier though. It is second nature to me.
Before I left I made a goodie bag for them both. My Mommy guilt sometimes overwhelms me if I am going "somewhere fun" without the kids. I know it is silly but you will only understand once you are a Mom.
The trip was so relaxing and something that we all needed. Even though I thought I would sleep a ton. I was up constantly, I suppose it is habit now. We spent a ton of time shopping and even more time eating. out.
Our cabin was very pretty and way high in the mountain between Piegon Forge and Gatliburg. The only bad thing was the slope of a driveway that went to it. Sadly, we almost flipped our new sequoia on Saturday when pulling in to the 3-4 inches of snow. Four wheel drive does nothing on a solid sheet if ice.
Curtis pulled up to the top of the drive and the next thing we know we are going down. Thankfully, we stopped but only inches from the side of the 40 ft drop off. We thought a wrecker would be the only way out but by mid morning Curtis was ready to brave it again. Then finally we were out and ready to come home! I am very sure that I heard him thank The Lord above for keeping us safe.
From what I have been told the kids were great as well! Bryar was about typical for his sleep schedule. Which is what had me the most worried. Our next over night trip in March should go much easier for us all!
