We took a trip mid-October to Gatlinburg with the Crawfords. We stayed just a few miles from Dollywood so it was really convenient to everything. Leaving on Thursday allowed us a full day at the park and another full day to spend in Pigeon Forge.
I think the kids would be completely happy just hanging out in the hotel rooms with each other. The funniest thing was one night the kids were playing so we went to check on them. They had pulled the sheets off of their bed and made a long aisle from their bed down the hallway. They said they were having a wedding. That lead to Braden and Camille walking down the aisle, Reed standing on the bed saying "Ladies and Gentleman, boys and girls.." and finally Camille grabbing Braden with both hands and laying a kiss on him. I wish that I had that whole thing on video because we had no part in any of the planning! Too cute!
Pictures from Dollywood. It was a bit cold but made for really low crowds and lots of rides.

The place where we stayed had a great indoor pool and outdoor playground. The kids played while ML and I did a little shopping.
