G-Burg 2012

This is sooo late and I almost completely forgot to post about it (Hello! That’s why I really need to remind myself to post once a week)


We had such an awesome weekend in Gatlinburg. Leaving Cincinnati on a beautiful Friday afternoon and surprisingly hitting NO traffic -was a first for us! We got to G-burg around 5ish…early enough to grocery shop, unpack, cook some pizza’s and drink a couple glasses of wine (beer for the guys)

Saturday we packed up for our hike – we had BEAUTIFUL weather. It was in the 60’s! Dan had shorts on and G only needed a light jacket.

Our hike was about 4 -5 miles and took us about 2 hours to complete. Grayson is definitely getting a little ansy in the backpack nowadays! He’s not too bad, but he definitely wants to walk around like the big kids. He is getting soooo long for the backpack, too. The weight capacity is around 50lbs…so clearly, he has room to grow.

After our hike, we headed back to the cabin for naps….woke up to cook dinner, drink more beer and wine, relax on the outdoor balconey, and watch Signs. (a little side note – Laura and I are OBSESSED with the movie Signs, The Village and Slither)

Sunday morning we woke up to much cooler temperatures. Dan made everyone breakfast – pancakes, eggs, grits and bacon We had a slow start and decided to get out of the cabin for a bit and pick up some delicious homemade bagel spread nearby. Laura and John went their own way for lunch and a wine tasting! Oh, I totally wish we could’ve gone wine tasting. All the while, Laura’s famous stew was heating in the crockpot..

Once we got back to the cabin, it was complete perfection – it had started to SNOW!! Soo beautiful.

G ran around the cabin for the rest of the evening - He LOVED it.

Monday morning we packed our bags and said goodbye to our peaceful cabin. I am soo happy we were able to enjoy a wonderful, quiet weekend with some of our best friends. It was the perfect getaway weekend.
