Smokey Mountain Trip with the Tomlinson's

Two weekends ago we had the pleasure of taking a mini vacation with our wonderful friends Aaron, Amy and their 2 girls Clara and Coy and also Amy's niece Kaleigh. We have vacationed with them before except normally it is a parents only trip, well except Coy who has accompanied us due to either being in the womb or nursing both of which make it hard to leave her at home :) Taylor was so excited to learn that Kaleigh was coming as that gave her a play mate. I have to give credit where it is due as we were able to take this "vacation" thanks to Matt's parents timeshare. They booked 5 days at the resort but were only able to use 2 of them b/c they were keeping 1 of the grandsons for a week and therefore had to go home.

We had the most relaxing weekend of movie watching, talking, swimming and eating. We normally have eaten out once on previous trips but with 6 kids under the age of 9 we opted to eat all our meals in since we had a huge kitchen.

My little fish going all over the pool :)

Me and my little boy...the only proof I was there was this picture!

Sweet baby Coy loved the little pool

Aaron being goofy :)

We had the baby pool all to ourselves most of the time

Looks like you guys had a great time. The pool muat have been a hit with everyone- lots of smiles! I can relate to always being the one taking pictures and never being in them. I think it must be one of our motherly roles!

How fun! I can't believe how big baby Coy is now! I guess when we left she was a newborn. She is precious. Tell Amy I said "hi."
