Ripley's Aquarium ~ Gatlinburg

My mom and memaw came in town for a visit. They brought my adopted sister (9.5) and 2 nephews (6 & 5). My mom had 2 beanie babies for each kid... even the baby.

Yesterday (July 29) we went to Ripley's Aquarium in Gatlinburg. We had so much fun! And as a side note: Homeschool Admission Price is $7 per person.

Here's the gang! Back row: Me, *L*, Mike, Memaw, Mom (aka Nana)
Front row: *T*, *B*, 5yo nephew, *C*, 6yo nephew, and *O* my little sis.

This was so neat, it looks like the US Flag.

They had a moving conveyor belt floor that went through a glass tunnel where you could see all of the fish.

Can you see the scratches? They're from a shark attack!

I was pushing Memaw in the wheelchair, while she was holding *L*.

Awesome pictures that Mike took:

  2. We love that aquarium-it is so much fun!!
    It looks like you all had a great trip. I know how "L" feels though; I'm always worn out when we finish an aquarium trip, lol.

  3. Looks like an awesome field trip! Loving the shark attack. Too cool. So neat that you were able to be doing this with your family (and so close to when *Z* comes too!).
