As much as I like this area, it was way more "touristy" than I thought it would be. We did lots of research before we left and decided a head of time what attractions we would visit. We knew we wanted to visit Cades Cove and The Dinosaur Walk Museum as well as do some Gem Mining. We did all of those things and the kids had a blast! We also visited a Wax Museum in Gatlinburg.
Here is the second batch of photos:
|Prehistoric Alligator (& Nathan)|
|T-Rex & Friends|
|I think this T-Rex need a dentist|
|Amelia & Genie|
|Bella & Edward (I think they did an excellent job on Bella, don't you?)|
|Beam me up!|
|We're queens of the world!|
|Men in black (& white)|
|Frodo (Amelia's head is covering his furry feet!|
I'm waiting patiently for some Fall weather to appear. I don't have high hopes.
Stay tuned for Part Three!
