Being Spontaneous!

Labor Day weekend we packed our stuff and headed out the door. We headed towards the mountains and ended up in Asheville, NC. It was so crowded and every hotel was booked, so we drove towards TN and ended up in Maggie Valley late that night and finally found a hotel room. It was really nice drive, but we were tired of being in the car and glad we had a place to stay. We then got up the next day, had breakfast and headed towards Gatlinburg. We found a nice little cabin in Gatlinburg to stay in the 2nd night. We had dinner in Pigeon Forge and we were going to play mini golf, but it started to rain, so we went to a ride/game park. They had games inside to play and once it stopped raining, the boys rode some rides. We had a great time and the views were awesome!

Ben's 4th birthday party!

Ben had such a fun birthday party this year! We usually just have family over to celebrate, but this year we had an actual party. We had it at the Alpharetta Community Center gym. It was a gymnastics party and they had a blast! Ben and Jake both took gymnastics there this summer and loved it. There were two instructors there doing different stations with the kids. We then had pizza and cake. I can't believe our little guy is 4 years old! He is such a sweet, smart little boy and makes me laugh every single day. I am so proud of you Ben! Happy Birthday!
