Gatlinburg Day 1

We were blessed to spend a week in Gatlinburg TN. We shared a cabin with a co-worker of mine and her family. Even though we only really had a few days of good weather (it rained about half the time) our time there was still tons of fun. I am splitting this up into several posts as I don't want to overwhelm you with tons of shots or slides. :)

Our First full day in Gatlinburg, we (Rebecca, the kids and I) hung out in the morning and did the grocery run before the men came in from the Titans game Sunday Eve. After the men got in and we ate lunch, got settled and relaxed we decided to head into Pigeon Forge and check out the sights and what we might be able to do that afternoon. We decided to hit WonderWorks. It is an interactive children's museum that has tons of hands on activities for the kids. 4 out of 5 of us were able to get in free since I am a teacher. :) Was a nice perk for us! Since it was a dreary day we were not the only ones who thought it would be a good indoor activity. My boys got to climb the wall, play in a replica of a space ship, experience hurricane winds and an earthquake, dance with art in motion, play with bubbles and have an absolute blast. Riley was able to do all but a few of the activities. It was so fun to watch them. I stayed on the sidelines for the rides, just because of the pregnancy, but it was a blast for me as well. I have to say by far it was one of the best Children's museums I have been in.

Stay tuned for day 2!

It all looked like so much fun! As we said, we would love to go with you next time you go! It looks like you guys were able to enjoy some beautiful fall colors. We miss you! Thanks again for taking care of me when we passed through a few weeks ago. I really meant to be helping you, let you sit down and rest a while but it ended up being the other way around. You are such a good friend. We love you guys.
