This past weekend, Chris and I took the girls on a trip to Gatlinburg.  Chris collects fishing lures and they were having a show up there, so we thought it would be a good time for a family trip.  We left on Thursday after Emily got out of school.  Chris' parents came up on Friday to join the fun. 

Friday morning I was by myself until his parents got there, so I decided to take the girls to the Gatlinburg
Aquarium.  It was right down the street from our hotel and I was so glad because as soon as we go out the door it started snowing. 

Emily has been to an Aquarium before, but it was all new to Gracie.  I think her favorite part was that she could run free as a bird.  It was not very crowded and she was everywhere!  It was so fun to see her excitement. 

Here are some of the weird  little creatures we saw at the aquarium.  I know God has a plan for everything,  but some of these little jokers are strange!!

They had this moving sidewalk that went under a tank, so that all the fish were swimming on top and all around you.  Gracie loved the sidewalk.  She wanted to stand by herself and take it all in.

Not Emily!  She stayed right by me and the stroller.  All she kept saying was, "This is creeping me out"!

Everyone's favorite part were the penguins.  They were so cute and fun to watch!

They had this long tube that went under the aquarium where the penguins were at and you could crawl up and stand in this area that is in the middle of the penguins.  Gracie and Emily loved it.

As usual, it didn't take Emily long before she met a friend.

This is our sweet Fluffy.  You can't leave the aquarium without a gift from the Gift Shop.  But that seemed to be Emily's motto at every store we went in!  ha ha

We had a great time at the aquarium.  I have more to come about our trip....stay tuned.
