Vacation 2009

This year we spent a week at "The Wilderness in the Smokies". It was a really, really nice place! I would recommend it to anyone who loves the water. There is two outdoor water parks and then one huge indoor water park. Of course it was right up Kaylee's alley, Kara Brooke came down with a "fever virus" right before we left and so she did not have a very good time at all until the last night. Bless her little heart she was on so much medicine, she was REALLY fussy and wanted to sleep a lot! So we were pretty much on Kara Brooke time and didn't do a lot of things that we had planned on. Oh well Kaylee didn't care as long as she could play in the water and the arcade and maybe get a bite to eat, she was just fine! My parents went with us thank goodness, my Mom was a HUGE help with KB! I didn't take as many pictures as I normally do because well, KB was glued to me, Anyway I have added quite a few so grab a cup of Joe, sit back and relax......ENJOY our trip to The Wilderness!

Kris and Kaylee did the "Sky Flyer". It pulls you up 75 ft. and then drops you swinging you back and forth through the air! I was a nervous wreck watching them do it. Yes, I know I did it when I was a teenager BUT NOT at 8 years old!
Getting suited up.
Up they go!
Kris just pulled the rip cord!
Down they come!
Back and forth, back and forth!

"That was AWESOME, Momma!"

Kara Brooke met a friend.

And she is asleep again. Poor baby felt horrible!
Surf Rider!
This is Kaylee surfing! Actually this first picture is Kaylee wiping out! ha!

Now she has got it!
Of course Daddy had to try it out!
Look at the Pro go!
Our favorite restaurant in Pigeon Forge...Bullfish!

My sweet baby girls!
One morning we got up early and did pottery at the resort. Kaylee LOVED it, so did I! Here is Kaylee's piece.
And Kara Brooke's.
I went back the night before we left all by myself and painted me a piece {they are shipping it to me, hopefully I will have it this week. I will share it with you as soon as it comes in.} I didn't realize what a stress releaver painting could be.
All in all we enjoyed our vacation, espically Kris and Kaylee and would defiently go back there again. Everything was perfect from the towels, sheets, pillows, furniture to the cushions on the chairs by the pool! FABULOUS!

It is in Sevierville, TN just outside of Gatlinburg. Yes it was AWESOME, espically if your girls like the water!
