Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

Our week in Tennessee was great! The weather was hot ... very hot ... and humid!
The only time it really rained all week was at night and on our first day there ... when we were half way up a trail on our way to see Grotto Falls.

After the initial "oh no, my hair!" (which only people with curly/frizzy hair can truly understand) I didn't mind because it really cooled us down.

We managed to pack in a lot during the week. We did a lot of hiking, mostly in to see waterfalls.

We also did a lot of scenic drives. It's such gorgeous country there.

We managed to squeeze in some time for just relaxing around the pool at the cabin resort.

This made me very happy: a budding photographer and a couple fo the pictures he captured (he was learning about aperature and shutter speed).
I think I need to pass the camera off to him more often.

We did some horseback riding, and our favourite time of the whole vacation was ziplining.

We had a great time in Tennessee.
We're now at the end of our second week of vacation which was spent in Myrtle Beach.
Watch for that in my next blog post.

While we've had a good time, I think we're all ready to get back home.
I miss Matt and Spencer, even though I've called them everyday.
