We are just cruising along over here…23 weeks…crazy how times flies!
Kyle and I went on a weekend getaway…or as I call it, our “baby moon”. Kyle had to be at a seminar in Knoxville for one night so we decided to make a long weekend out of it. We stayed one night in downtown Knoxville and the rest of our weekend in Gatlinburg. Knoxville was surprisingly fun! We enjoyed a great little dinner downtown after Kyle’s work seminar. It was a local little spot that was near the University so there was a good amount of college students there…made it fun. I fit right in with my big ol’ belly! ;)
The next morning we drove up to Gatlinburg (the mountains) and that is where we spent the rest of the weekend. We ate at a lot of great little places and did a lot of the touristy activities. Over the 2 full days that we were there we visited a bunch of the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not attractions…aquarium, car museum, haunted house mini golf and a magic show. We had a lot of fun and it was great to be able to spend time together.

Fun baby fact (from pregnancy journal):
This week your baby's eyelids will open, although he won't be able to see much because the womb is dark - it will get lighter as the skin stretches - and his visual range is limited until a few weeks after birth.
