We were down to Branson Missouri and Gatlinberg Tennessee. We ended up deciding on Gatlinberg. We will be going with my sister Terri and her family. I found an absolutely gorgeous place to rent a 5 bedroom house so we will have plenty of room to have our own space too- the great news is that dividing the cost makes it very reasonable.
We wanted a house so we could cook our own food so we didn't have to pay for going out to eat as well.
We are so excited about this vacation, the kids want to see bears and apparently there's a good chance of that happening where we're staying!
We plan on going to the State Park- it's supposed to be beautiful, there is a really neat aquarium and there's a chinese Cirque De Solei type show that looks really neat.
We're going to just kind of play it by ear and see what we want to do exactly when we get there. The best part- it will be about 65 degrees there- perfect weather!!!!!
On a totally different note- can I just say how totally disgusted and dissapointed I am in Michael Phelps. He admitted this weekend that a picture taken of him last November is accurate and he was smoking pot. This is twice now that he has had "bad judgement" A couple years ago he had "bad judgement" when driving drunk.
It just kills me that so many kids look up to him and this is the behavior he exhibits!
Ok- off my soapbox. I hope everyone has a great Monday!
