The Last Hurrah of Summer

With school starting soon we thought we needed an adventure to end the summer.  So we packed up the van and left.
Last Hurrah
We did have a destination in mind.  The Smokies in Tennessee.  It took us a little over 8 hours to get there.  Not too bad.  This is what we drove to.  It was so green.

We didn't stay in a cabin, but that would have been nice.  If it was up to my snobbish standards, that is.  We stayed in a condo at The Resort.  We had plenty of space, a full kitchen, and laundry facilities in the room.  The best part, in the kids' opinion, was the swimming area.  There was an indoor and outdoor mini water park.  Here are the kids hanging out in the lazy river.

We got to the condo in time to eat dinner and splash around in the water.  Then it was time for bed.  It had been a long day.
