So we left yesterday March 11th on a road trip to Gatlinburg, TN. We started our trip at 6:30pm arriving in Jacksonville, FL 4 hrs later. We stayed with some great friends over night and headed out early this morning. We had an 8 hr plus stops drive to arrive in Gatlinburg. Kids honestly did soooooo good. The drive was pretty uneventful. No car trouble (thank you God), no meltdown (by the kids or parents), all in all pretty good. We enjoyed our time together, singing, watching movies and celebrating with Kendall as she LOST HER 2ND Tooth!! Can you believe it! Tooth number 2. So both bottom teeth are gone. She looks so cute and grown up all at the same time. WOW! Of course we had are scrambling tonight for tooth fairy money, lol! Kendall assured us that the tooth fairy goes everywhere, so she is not worried.
Okay on another note we get to Gatlinburg, and get checked into our cabin, get unpacked, all is good. K.C. takes the kids to ride their bikes and get some energy out while I put everything away and call out for dinner. While I am putting stuff away I notice spots on the white bedding, upon a closer look, I notice they are ladybugs. Upon further exploring I find many ladybugs around the cabin, like over 10. So I call the front desk to ask about this ladybug invasion. The man says, yes he is aware and yes they are everywhere. I guess the national park up the road releases them and now they have left their home and found homes in everybody else's homes. Sort of gross, you may say but they are just ladybugs, well imagine looking up at the light fixture and it being completely black around the inside. Needless to say we will be calling in the morning to have them removed. We have decided they must like the heat of the lights and we will be leaving the lights on all night praying that they will stay put. They better.
