July 4th Weekend!

This fourth of July weekend we rented a cabin in the smoky mountains. My brother, Travis, came down from Ohio to join us for our little vacation.  He is in the military and therefore we were able to use his discount for everything in Gatlinburg we wanted to do.  We are now taking him on every vacation!! HA!  The cabin we stayed at was fan-tastic!  Pool table, hot tub, jacuzzi bath tub, king size beds, fireplace, and very secluded.  Awesome.  Just what we needed!  Saturday, we spent the day playing in downtown Gatlinburg.  We arrived Friday evening and left Sunday afternoon.  Really quick trip, but it was full of fun!  Here are some of the pictures from our adventures in the Smoky Mountains.

This is our cabin.  We played, ate smores, and lounged by the fire :)
There was a whole lot of losin going on...
