Our Visit to the Aquarium

In Gatlinburg, there is a Ripley's Aquarium. I was a little nervous at first to visit an aquarium that had "Ripley's" in front of it, but it was actually a very cool place! The girls absolutely loved it, and could have spent the whole day there. The best part? They have this tunnel that you walk though and the sharks and sting rays and all the pretty little fish swim all around you! Great fun! The only downer is that there was no sea turtles, and they were supposed to be there. Oh, well! We had a great time without them. :)
Okay, I know this is a blurry picture, but check out this guys nose! This makes me think that God definitely has a sense of humor. :)

Some of the very colorful fish.

Josh is helping them find "Dory and Nemo".

Here is a shot of the tunnel. Half of it was a moving sidewalk. Pretty cool!

Um, Josh...watch out! Looks like a shark is going to eat you.

Jelly fish!

These things are so strange. We spent a long time watching them swim about.

Love the new blog format! It's really cute... and so are the girls whose feet presumably are filling those galloshes (how do you spell that word!) and (I'm so excited to be able to use that word in a sentence!) Have a great day!

I though the first "blurry" picture was a picture of a person holing a chain saw at first glance! It was not until you said it was a fish that I realized what it was!
Okay I admit it, I am an air-head!!!
