Vacation Time

On vacation this week with my darling daughter. We are enjoying our condo in Gatlinburg.  We've done some shopping and eating out, watching shows on our laptops,  (Dark Shadows and Doctor Who), sightseeing and Dollywood.  Loving our mother and daughter chats and time together.  My fourteen year old is growing up fast.
