Gatlinburg weekend

Our weekend trip to Gatlinburg, TN
Unfortunately our camera was lost after the first day so we lost our pictures of the Ripley's Aquarium and the Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum.
Other than that, the weekend was wonderful. The kids had a great time and Nathan only asked to go to the beach once (he thinks vacation = beach).
Our hotel was right along the creek/river that runs through Gatlinburg. It was beautiful (not exactly a beach) and the kids enjoyed playing on the rocks and watching the ducks and fish in the water.

We spent one day up the mountain at a little village called Ober Gatlinburg. During the winter months this is a popular ski destination, but there is still a lot to do when the weather is warm. We rode the chair lifts up the mountain and rode the mountain slide back to the bottom. There was a kiddie playground, swinging chair ride, water boat ride, carousel and a wildlife rescue/zoo.
