Over Easter, our family met up with my parents and siblings in the Smokey Mountains. We kids had put this surprise together a long time ago for my parents, who both turned 60 last year. We gave them clues to the vacation at both of their birthdays, Christmas and on their anniversary in January. It was a wonderful way to honor and celebrate them. Here are a few of my favorite snapshots of our weekend in Townsend, Tennessee.
These girlies were ready for bed before we ate supper. All of the kids were excited to share the bunk bed in the basement.
Henry meets Uncle Lyndon.
Terror in the dark, slippery cave. OK, only my terror! I was afraid one of the kids would slip and fall to death or dismemberment. Here we were throwing coins into a wishing well, and it was safe to release my death grip on the railing in order to use the camera.
Well, hello there, Handsome!!
