Traveling to Pigeon Forge

On Good Friday, we took the boys to a little family getaway to Pigeon Forge.  Our destination was the "Wilderness in the Smokies" lodge and water park. We planned to meet Nana, Papa, Emily, Zac, Cooper, Hank, and Quinn for swimming, eating and hiking.

Midway along our drive, we drove right by this! Thomas!  It was so exciting to see Thomas, well most of Thomas, so close.

We stopped for lunch at Chipotle in Knoxville.  We ate outside to avoid bothering the other guests.

Will at a fair amount of black beans, corns, and chicken. 

After a close encounter with a wasp that flew into the van and scared Sam half to death, we were back on the road anxiously awaiting our next stop.
