When we finally got to our cabin, Trent made a fire (God bless him), and we got to relax for a while before going to bed. Trent mentioned something about hiking the next day - HAH! Matt said, "Patrice can't even go up a set of stairs." That's not exactly true - I can go up them... I just can't breathe at the top. So anyway, the next day we opted for a drive-thru scenic tour of Cade's Cove and found a creek right off the road - no hiking involved. Cade's Cove was an 11 mile loop by car or bike (which do you think we chose???), but we only went a few miles because it was getting late and we were hungry.
We ate at an awesome steakhouse Saturday night and saw Jeff Francoeur (see earlier post) before heading back to the cabin for another fire and more relaxing. On Sunday we went to the outlets just north of Gatlinburg before heading on our way. We took a different way home (all I-40), but weren't too fond of it either, as it took us at least 5 hours to get home. What can I say? We're hard to please. All in all it was a very fun trip, and it was great to see the boys and Katie (Trent's sister - Woohoo! Another girl!) again.
Here are some pics.
