Wilderness at the Smokies

We planned this trip months ago, anticipating getting a break from gray Winter skies - it turned out to be a GORGEOUS week here in the mountains, but the change of scenery was still welcome!
We ventured to Tennessee to the Wilderness At The Smokies indoor waterpark. We stayed with 3 other homeschooling families, all sharing one gigantic hotel room. We love these mid-week Winter trips - very few hotel guests meant practically no lines to wait in, as well as discounted rates. Didn't get too many great photos since most of the fun at a water park is inside dark slides or in the water! The boys spent most of their time in the wave pool, and doing slides. I did snap some pictures of Reed doing the Surf Rider machine - he was a rock star!

The hotel room slept 15, had 3 bathrooms, a fireplace, and a FULL kitchen - so we had potluck-style meals and plenty of grown-up and kid time :)

Here's hoping there's many more sunny days for the remainder of the Winter!
