However, we still managed to have some fun. The first night we just went to The Old Mill Square. The boys enjoyed the Toy Store and the Candy Kitchen!

|Elliott found "Lego" candy blocks|
Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies
Day 2 was a bit busier. The boys enjoy aquariums immensely, but we don't have any within a reasonable distance of home, so this was a nice surprise for them. It's not huge, but it does offer a fun, educational experience. It was a pleasant experience and the boys loved it, but I'm glad we got a homeschool discount.
|I do appreciate the eye-level exhibits for little ones|
|The sharks were a big hit, as always.|
|Emory had no fear, and enjoyed the touch tank.|
|Feeling inside a shark's stomach|
|Can you see Elliott's head peeking out on the right?|
After the Aquarium we walked around Gatlinburg for a bit, before getting a bite to eat.
|Emory liked the ducks of course.|
Afterwards we went back to the hotel for a nap, then that evening we walked to a little kiddie amusement park. They boys LOVED the rides!
|A train ride|
|No motion sickness!!|
|Elliott enjoyed the swings|
|Emory cried to get on the "horsies" then never would ride!|
|Both boys loved the airplanes, even though daddy was a nervous wreck!|
