Friday, after grocery shopping and getting our milk, me and the kiddos headed up to Westgate Gatlinburg (our timeshare) to celebrate Hailey and Hunter's BDs. GPS took us a totally different scenic route so it was fun! Sean met us after he got off work. We ate dinner in and unpacked. Saturday we headed to the Aquarium of the Smokies. We got season passes for all 8 Ripley's attractions up in Gatlinburg for all the kids birthdays and to contribute to Gatlinburg after the fires. The aquarium was packed! Then we did a little shopping in downtown Gatlinburg at The Village and got some Starbucks. Tried to head to Olive Garden for dinner, but didn't feel like the 1.5 hr wait was worth it with 5 small children lol. So off to Friday's we went. Sunday, we were lazy and ended up doing home (hotel) church (probably because of the time change and our busy Saturday). We went to the waterpark at Westgate for a bit, the playground, and yes, yes went back to Starbucks. Had to get our 30 weekend bonus stars! Ryan and Sean and Addie went to Ripley's Davy Crockett putt-putt while the rest of us camped out in the car - I needed to rest and the other children had bad attitudes. Grumps. Last night we ate in and today Sean got up super early to go to work. Me and the children packed up and headed home around 1030. It's good to be home, but a little sad vacation is over. You know how it goes.
