Vacation dreams. . . . . .


We've all been there. On our yearly family vacation with kids in tow to visit what we parents think is an exciting and interesting place that the whole family will enjoy. Although we should be satisfied with just surviving the 8 hour car trip alone. Then once you get there all of those exciting places and activities you were so looking forward to seem like absolute torture to those that seem to know everything. That's right I'm talking about teenagers! Our family is about to embark upon our trip in less than a week. We have planned an exciting 8 day trip to Gatlinburg and we can hardly wait. Or should I say my Husband and I can hardly wait! I can see it now, upon visiting Cades Cove and oohing and aahing walking amongst the original settler's cabins and churches, walking through the cemeteries and just soaking up all of the natural beauty of this place I'll glance over to "them" and they'll probably be standing there with a glum look on their face when they realize that they have no signal on their cell so texting their buddies back home is out of the question. Not to mention the absolute horror of wanting them to actually "walk" 1/4 mile down a trail to visit what they think is just an "old house in the woods". Or, stand in the front while listening to a park ranger describe the differences between the "red" berries and the "blue" berries! Hmmm, this is actually starting to sound pretty good. And to think that I never thought I would be able to get enough payback?
