June started off trekking to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge spending days at Nascar SpeedPark with the kids +1 having a blast on go-carts, taking out our frustrations on the track and each other. My Knight and I took a few rounds on the Mini-Sprint cars which were not quite fast enough but sooo much fun! Or was for me as I realized the hat blowing across the track and being run over repeatedly was Knight's favorite light-colored Blackhawks hat....WHOOPS! haha! Making it more hysterical was the fact that he didn't realize it was his either, "Some poor SOB lost his hat. Wait....that's MY HAT!" he said, while I literally rolled laughing with tears falling trying to get out of that tiny little car. What a hoot! Needless to say I was very thankful for the loss of 30 pounds from my arse or I'd had a very difficult time getting in those cars...or any of the go-carts! The slick tracks were fun for all (except T-man who could only watch) and I found myself in maniacal laughter as I raced my family around the track- 'Oh look, there's my child- Dodge! ZOOM! MUAHAHAHAH!!' So fun!
Of course we went to Ober Gatlinburg to enjoy the a day of water and alpine slides and of course the chair lift up to the top of Mt. Harrison. The view is simply breathtaking. I could stay all day up there!

It's difficult to get a picture to show exactly how HUGE this room is- it's amazing. Adults could climb too, but I stayed on the ground with My Knight to shoot some pics.
All in all, it was a great long weekend! We had to be tourists and get a picture by the Parkway sign before we left. Goobers.
After Gatlinburg, the kids went to their dad's for a week....then comes the sadness part.
(but don't hold your breath I'll get it posted before August!!)
