Our family enjoys a good mystery trip. And back in February, as we approached President's Day weekend ~ specifically Darcy's Forever Family day ~ Ian and I had a good one planned.
But darn that school thing. I keep forgetting that we now have readers in the ranks and one day Kylie asked, "Mommy, what's Gatlinburg?" I need to remember that my do lists need to be kept hidden if they give hints on surprises.
She may figured out where we were going, but at least I managed to keep our traveling partners under wraps.
On Thursday Darcy's sweet little China sister, Miss E, showed up. Over dinner that night DQ asked if they could go to Gatlinburg with us. We winked at her parents and all four adults played along, as if we had to consider the request.
But the surprise didn't end there. It may have been late when we arrived, and the crew was a little glazed, but they did notice that the seven bedroom house was a little large for nine of us...
Pretty much everywhere you looked that first morning you found kids in pajamas; playing games,
