John Luke and I spent a week at Chestnut Bay Resort on Lake Weiss in Alabama with Josh’s family.  Josh was only able to come for the weekend due to work.  On Monday I did my follow-up blood work at Lab Corp in Gadsden, Al.  While in Gadsden, we all went sight seeing to Noccalula Falls.  We toured the park and rode the train.  They had a petting zoo where kids could pet the animals such as rabbits, llamas, goats, and deer.


 Tuesday we rented a pontoon boat and hung out by the lake kayaking, paddle boarding, and swimming.  The lake had a beachfront with lawn chairs and a shallow section for the kids.  John Luke wasn’t as much into swimming as he was playing in the sand.  The lake had a 120 foot water slide the older kids loved.


 On Wednesday my mother and sister-n-law had a girl’s day out for lunch and Antique shopping.  We found this little cafe called Tewana’s which has been featured in Southern Living.  After a couple of bites, we found out why.  It was a great day and we enjoyed the kid free shopping.  Spoke with the NEDC and my blood work came back good.  I am officially released to my Ob/gyn. Yippee!


 Thursday we all loaded up and went to Little River Canyon and Lookout Mountain on a road trip.  We had lunch in a quant little town called Mentone and did some more shopping.


 Friday, John Luke, Pop and I stayed back at the cabin while the rest of the crew went zip-lining in Little River Canyon.  That afternoon we did some more kayaking and paddle boarding.  I’m a little hooked on paddle boarding and told Josh I want a paddle board for my birthday in September.


 We were blessed with beautiful weather.  It started sprinkling Saturday, the day we were leaving.  It was a jammed pack week, but always good to get to spend time together with family.  Here are some pictures from our vacation.
