Wednesday we headed up to the Cades Cove Picinic area with some of our best friends. We got there at 10:30 and didn't leave until 5. It was a wonderful way to spend the day. The kids call this "their island". Miss Emily grilled some awesome hotdogs. We brought Sweet Pea...against my better judgement...and she ended up spending most of the time in the car. :( Other than that...everyone had a blast playing in the water and exploring.
