Brandy is hosting Monday Moments on her blog for the next four weeks. On each Monday you are suppose to share a moment you spent relaxing. Anything as simple as drinking coffee, reading a book or participating in your favorite pass time activity. She will also be drawing some lucky participants for cool Starbucks gifts including gift cards! Woo-hoo.
So for my Monday Moments that I am sharing this week are from last week’s Spring Break vacation. The first photo is Noah running around and playing at the indoor water park that we spent two nights at in Gatlinburg, TN. He had so much fun and our favorite was going around on the lazy river. Everyone loved that. It was relaxing just watching him play carefree.
The second photo is of me up in the mountains. We took a drive from Gatlinburg, TN up to the border of North Carolina. My niece, Deianeira, wanted to be able to say she had visited even another state on our trip so crossing the border was important to her. Plus it was fun and beautiful. The weather was so cold up in the mountains that we saw snow. The running water was gorgeous and I loved taking photos with the kids. This one T took of me sitting on the rocks.
Once we reached the border of Tennessee and North Carolina the sun was starting to set. We stopped for the kids to take photos next to the state line sign and I took some quick shots of this beautiful sunset. It was so peaceful and relaxing to see up on the top of the mountain.
These are my most recent relaxing moments. It was nice to have the kids out of school for a week so we were able to visit family, however it’s also nice to get back on track this week.
