|WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE|
For the Arrest and Delivery of
THE WILD BUNCH
Wanted by the Pinkerton Detective Agency for Bank Robbery,
Murder, Horse Stealing and Jail Breaking.
John won 4 tickets to Dollywood's Splash Country, so we decided to take the kids and spend the weekend in Gatlinburg. We picked up Chris from school on Friday and headed up.
First we went to Bubba Gump Shrimp. It was loud, crowded and dark and the food was fantastic! The kids really seemed to like it too. I was tickled about the license plates. One was blue and said "Run, Forrest, Run" and a red one that said "Stop, Forrest, Stop". If you needed the waitress, you'd flip to the red plate and she'd know to stop, then obviously, if you didn't need her, you'd flip to the blue.
We then went to Ripley's Believe It or Not. John and I had never been before and we found all kinds of interesting things....believe it or not! LOL

Then came Saturday. The REAL reason we'd gone. (I bought a waterproof, disposable camera, so the pictures aren't the greatest, but I still think they capture the moment.) We stayed about 4 hours. The kids really enjoyed themselves and we were all exhausted by the time we left, McKayla had fallen asleep before we'd even left the parking spot LOL.

|I rarely like pictures of me, and this is one I particularly|
don't like, BUT, Chris took it and it's family memories,
so I'll deal with it LOL.

McKayla came down on the red slide by herself one time, but got flipped and turned around and was heading backwards, head first. I had to snatch her before she went under, so there was no picture of her "solo" journey.

We also rode the Raging River Rapids. We weren't sure if McKayla would do it but not only did she scream, giggle and laugh the whole way down, she wanted to do it again!
Saturday night we took the kids to the go-cart tracks. As you can see from the pics below, I'm pretty sure they enjoyed themselves.
We tried some golfing, but McKayla had hit her max for the day and was D.O.N.E, my cell phone died and I didn't have the disposable, so no pictures of our golfing adventures.
A great end to a great summer.
