smoky pics

This was a fun hike we enjoyed but did not finish. It was about 2 miles there and another 2 miles back so we just hiked about a mile and headed back. It was a nature trail so lots of roots, rocks, and whatever else came along. It was very beautiful!
Now this hike we did finish and the kids were excited to see the waterfall at the end. We also had the opportunity to see some baby cubs on this hike. The weather was perfect!
This was just a fun spot to take a family picture so we did. Not very often there is a sign with your name on it.

The kids loved this and Terrence put quite a bit of time into getting the Jiffypop to come out just right. It was just like it came out of the microwave. Usually half the popcorn gets burnt so we were lucky. Poor Scott really needed to go potty but he made it through the picture with the trickling stream noises and all.

Smoky Mountains

We just took a fun family trip up to the Smoky Mountains and it was beautiful!! It was my birthday present and I must say I almost loved every minute of it. The only part I could have gone without was the leaky tent and all night of rain. I told suggested to Terrence that we should put up the tarp but of course the weather was beautiful so he felt no need to do that. As many years as I have been camping I should have insisted but I didn't and we paid the price with no sleep and wet everything in the morning.

The hikes were fun and the views were amazing!! The kids loved playing in the dirt and being free to do just about anything. They were a little worried about bears because everywhere we went their were signs cautioning you about them. We did have the opportunity to see two baby cube and they were really cute. Of course we kept our distance to be sure mama bear was not around.

After 2 days of camping Terrence decided it was time for a hotel so we stayed in a tourist town called Gatlinburg in Tennessee. It was fun to walk around town and see the small shops. The kids loved watching the taffy get stretched and wrapped up so of course we had to go in a buy some to see how good it was. So to sum it up we had a great time and I would love to go back soon!

I will post pictures of the trip when my hubby returns from Utah with them. He always has my pitures!

Exciting News!!

Well the Campbell Family is having a baby once more!! The kids have been waiting very patiently for number 4 and they will continue to wait until March. They are very excited and Scott just wants it to be a boy so he can have a brother to play with. I have my doubts that it is a boy and I really have no reasoning other then that is just how I feel. Hopefully I am wrong because I would like this one to be a boy too. Terrence has been awesome helping around the house or should I say running the house. On days I don't feel good he does everything clear down to the dishes. He is the best!!! We will let everyone know in about 10 weeks if it is a boy or a girl.
