We had a great time! I took over 1,500 pictures and tons of hours on video. This is one vacation that my boys will forever remember!

We made it to TN on Saturday morning and needless to say we were beat! We checked in and just relaxed and ordered some pizza.

Little Luis kept asking me if it would snow. I was so afraid that it would not and I explained to him that it was not in our control, but that the weather forecast said it would snow. Imagine to my surprise when I woke up and saw a beautiful white wonderland! I woke the boys up by 6:00 am and we were out playing in the snow by 6:30 am! It was so funny! We had a good 2 to3 inches of snow. Now I know you Northerner's must be laughing at how little snow, but heck that is a lot for some kids born in the tropics and then living in FL! LOL

We headed up to the mountains to go skiing and let me just say that I am becoming a wimp! I was literally hyper-ventilating while Hubby was driving up the mountains! And it did not help that a good chunk of the road was under construction and they merely had some orange cones to keep you from falling hundreds of feet down the mountain!

It was cold as heck! We did some snowboarding and the boys really liked it. When it came time to go either snowboarding or skiing the little boys opted not to do it. It was a sigh of relief for me as I was not too keen on going down a snowy slope! I think hubby had the same train of thought because Joey was the only one heading up the slopes and the rest of us decided to stay in lower grounds!

While Joey is heading toward the slopes I almost died when I saw my child go on the wrong side of the slopes that were clearly labeled in huge RED letters "Advanced Skiers Only". Needless to say he made it out fine and had the time of his life!

It brings so much joy to see the smiles in my kids face!

We also went to the Biltmore Mansion in NC and I was a little bummed out to learn we could not video tape of take any pictures of the inside. (Hubby, did manage to film a little shhhh don't tell anyone LOL)

We then headed to Chattanooga, TN and did the Aquarium, Rock City and Ruby Falls.

I was able to make a quick stop in Atlanta GA and met up with Pug Mama & Big Daddy, Lisa and adorable Miss Briana and met the so nice Liene! We had a nice dinner at chatted up some. I wish It could have been a little longer. It was so nice to meet all you ladies after so much time of reading their blogs. Miss Briana is just a ham! When we left the boys all agreed she was the cutest thing ever! LOL

So back to reality vacation is over and I was back to work today, needless to say a little bit of a caos but all under control.

Below are some of the pictures I took. Enjoy!
