Nate here. OK, I know moms care WAY more about the kids and the memories than the scenery and the destination itself, but I've got to step in on this one. Nowhere in this or the previous post is a mention of our actual destination: the Great Smoky Mountains. Full of lore (Davey Crockett, Daniel Boone, Injuns, etc), hillbillies like you wouldn't believe, bears (no joke!) and birds (if you've never heard a Whip-poor-will singin' in the holler, you haven't lived. ;) And if you don't know what I'm talking about, listen to Randy Travis while you read up on the Whip-poor-will and the holler.). OK, now you can read on about our vacation...By the way, the second to last picture is us on top of Clingman's Dome, aka "Ol' Smoky," highest mountain in Tennessee!
This vacation proved to be a soul searching one for Natalie:
