Where have we been....

Gatlinburg, Tennessee.  And Pigeon Forge.  Yep, we took a little family vacation, and gotta away from it all. It was nice!

Our trip included visiting Ripley's Aquarium, riding a sky lift, eating ice cream, shopping, laughing at the Comedy Barn, eating at Flapjacks, and visiting the Titanic Museum.

The Aquarium was awesome!  The kids were all amazed, with the giant tanks filled with iridescent blue water and vibrant colored fish.

The 3 stooges!

They really wanted to swim with the fishes but settled for hugging the tanks.

But not each other, lol!

We walked through a shark tank, scary but true!  We were surrounded by sharks and gallons and gallons of water.  It was pretty awesome.

Wyatt touched and tried to pick up one of those things, eww!!
He thought it was cool!

Jillian loved being "inside" the fish tanks!  I have to say I would have liked it too, but I wouldn't fit under the thing, I tried!

Penguins are cute but pure evil!

This lady is standing guard so the penguins to break Jillian's little fingers.  Because of course leave it to Jillian to pet one!

Ice cream break.  She threw her's away but Noah decided he'd share!

Up at the top of the sky lift!  Great view from the top!

On our way down.

Feet!  I was really nervous my shoes would fall off, but I held on to them as tight as I could with my toes.

I held on to her as tight as I could!  Ya'll, I was nervous, I can't lie!  I was like Jillian don't move and definitely don't let go of that bar!

Our last stop before heading home.

The Titanic, herself.  Well, the museum.  I thought it was very interesting.  Lots of great facts, a real iceberg, a Morse code game and decks of the ship created at different angles to see what it was like to be standing on it as it was sinking.  We all got boarding passes that were actual people on the ship.  It told their story, what class they were and at the end you learned of your/their fate.  Of course Jillian had to go potty, so I never found out if I survived.

This was the size of one of the anchors from the ship.  It was ginormous!

We had a blast, and of course it went by way to fast!

The End!
