September trip to Cade's Cove!

We went to visit my grandparents in Knoxville and spent one day playing around at Cade's Cove and in Gatlinburg!  We had a great time.  We used to do this when I was a little girl and it is so much fun to get to take my kids to do it with my grandparents.  They love exploring the mountains and playing in that icy water!
Of course we started the day with a picnic-KFC style!
 Mamma and Pappa Carr!  We love these two!
 that water is freezing...!


 Trying to warm up with a little silly dance!!
 Mamma and Pappa relaxing and staying far far away from that icy water!
 Jay and the kids built a dam- they are committed too! Did I mention that the water is absolutely freezing?!!
Check out my mountain warriors!
 On our way up to Cade's Cove we spotted some Monster Trucks, so on the way back home we stopped to get a closer look!  This is Big Jim!
 Nathan was amazed at how big they are in person!

We also stopped and rode go-karts for the first time, but I didn't get any pictures because I was driving one of the the go-karts!!
