Weekend in the Mountains

Jason's parents graciously invited us to spend the weekend with them (and Jason's brother, Jordan) in a cabin they rented in the mountains of Gatlinburg. 

We ate, played with Connor, relaxed, ate some more, relaxed in the hot tub on the deck overlooking the gorgeous scenery, and Jason and I even got to sneak in a lunchtime date to stroll around downtown Gatlinburg.

notice the gift card he has stuck in his pants

Unlike last year, he loved the snow this time around.

curled up with the necessities: Muno, blanket, cookies, milk, and an episode of Gabba

He loves the Jack Black episode.

It was a great weekend, despite a few restaurant meltdowns with a certain toddler, and I am thankful that Jason and I both have families who let us tag along with them to places like Gatlinburg, Alaska, Myrtle Beach,  and Florida.  We are blessed (and here's to hoping they keep inviting us along).  :)
