Spring Break

Kane recently had a week off during Shorter's Spring Break and we really wanted to do something memorable and we invited ourselves to go to Kane's family's cabin in North Carolina along with his parents and sister and brother in law. They already had plans to go in celebration of Elizabeth's birthday, but since it worked out that Kane had some time off the week prior to the cabin trip we asked if we could tag along.

We headed to Knoxville early in the week and hung out there for a couple of days. On Thursday Kane, Evelyn and I headed to the mountains and spent one night at the cabin on our own. Evelyn went to bed fairly early and Kane and I enjoyed some relaxing time in the hot tub and then spent the rest of the evening watching a movie. It was a very nice evening spent together.

On Friday the rest of the crew drove in from Knoxville and we spent the rest of the weekend all hanging out together. We relaxed at the cabin, on the front porch and in the hot tub and we also went out and about just enough to not catch cabin fever. One afternoon we drove to a nearby mountain top where Mara Kate, Kane and Choonghwan did a steep hike up to the very top of the mountain where there is a large cross. Evelyn, PapaDog and I stayed in the grassy field and enjoyed the scenery all around us.

We also went out to eat one evening to celebrate Eliz's birthday and the table had a paper table cloth so kids could color on the table cloth while waiting on the food. Mara Kate enjoyed drawing and playing tick-tack-toe, but by the time it was over Kane, Elizabeth and I had all decorated the spaces surrounding us too! It was a fun evening, especially because the grandparents set Evelyn's high chair in between them and took care of feeding and entertaining her the entire time we were there.

 Sweet Evie...sweet and cute even with a snotty nose!
