Great Smoky Mountains National Park, TN

Our family enjoyed a nice weekend getaway during Mia’s Spring Break. This was the first time for all of us to visit the Great Smoky Mountains. It has to be one of the most beautiful places on the planet. We all felt so relaxed and enjoying having our family together again. The pictures below show how peaceful and beautiful this area is. It was breathtaking! I hope that we will have the chance one day to spend more time there and see the rest of the Smoky Mountains National Park.

On our last morning there right before leaving to catch our plane back to Orlando, it started to snow… We thought the first time that Mia would see snow would be after we moved to Finland. She screamed with such excitement when she saw the snow coming down out the window. She had the time of her life trying to catch all of the snowflakes. Such a special memory that we will never forget! ♥
