Yesterday we got back from our lovely vacation in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. It was amazing to see fall color and feel cooler temps. (Sadly it's mid-80s here in Florida, so it was fun to have real fall for a few days.) It was a great trip and wonderful to spend time with family.
The total drive is about nine and half hours, so it made for a pretty long haul. We left last Wednesday and drove to my parents' house in Chattanooga then followed them the cabin the next day. With a small kid, I totally recommend splitting a long drive. We did it in a straight shot coming home yesterday and it.was.rough. Thankfully, we were armed multiple Curious George movies on the iPad to keep the 17-month-old entertained during the drive. Seriously, a life saver! Though I'm not sure I'll every get the "Christmas Monkey" song out of my head.
