Gatlinburg Goings On

On today's agenda was an aquarium visit and then meandering around Gatlinburg. By this time in the family reunion vacay, my sister Marilyn and her husband had arrived, as had Michael, my brother's other son. Steve and Sam were due to arrive later this evening.

Once again, we loaded up the minivan but headed in the opposite direction from yesterday. We parked at the aquarium and headed inside to see sharks and rays and penguins, oh my! Well, along with several school groups, that is.

We left the aquarium and headed to downtown Gatlinburg where we saw the sights and did a little people watching. The brave ones decided on a sky lift ride while others stayed below to take photos. Those who were legal managed to find the moonshine sampling while the others listened to a little music. Then everyone was treated to a little ice cream. By that time, it was time for a return to the cabin for some naptime, perhaps fueled by activity, ice cream, and a little moonshine.

Once everyone had made it back to the cabin, it was time for a big family dinner and some hot tub time before bed. Another great day in the mountains!!

Today is a gift because: family fun in Gatlinburg; lunch at Mellow Mushroom; music at the moonshine place; Maribeth, Everley, Lynnette, and Lindley riding the lift; family dinner
