Marathon Madness... (Day Four)

The Marathon of vacation pictures continues...



After the reunion, we headed for Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. I loved this little family town. Although it does look like a smaller Branson. The people were nice and it was filled with fun family things to do. In fact we had a very hard time deciding where we would like to spend our afternoon. We finally decided on this place...







Looks crazy, huh? It was. But we all had a great time. Everything from climbing walls, earthquakes, bubbles, a bed of nails, baseball and space suits had us all enjoying ourselves. They even had laser tag and my mom played like a trooper! As we left everyone agreed it was a fun time...well that is except my youngest nephew Tate who exclaimed "I never want to go here again!!!" He is cute, but hard to please sometimes! He's five. :)










After Wonder Works we went for dinner. My sister and I spotted what my dad called a "little hole in the wall," but that little "hole" turned out to be a real treat. We mainly stopped because of the name. I kept expecting Fonzie to pop out somewhere, but was to be disappointed. However, I loved the atmosphere...red and white tables, jukebox, retro bar and pictures scattered all over the walls of celebrities, like Elvis and "The Beatles." If you like a good 'ol burger and a milkshake, this is the place to go...you might even get to see "the King."












After dinner we went back to the motel. My sister and dad spent the evening in the motel lobby, the only place you could get Internet, my mom had a few quiet moments to herself in her room and the dads took the kids swimming at the motel pool. I ended up at the pool for a photo shoot, before making my way to the lobby to blog a little. Here is just a few clips from the picture taking session...












Day Four turned out to be a fun day. Next stop? Dollywood.

Mich,

I absolutely love the pictures of the Wonderworks building. I wonder what they were thinking when they were building this? I bet someone seriously thought the blue prints were upside down.

Then off to the Happy Day's Diner! Classic 50's style dining and the hamburger looks delicious too!

Topping it all off with a cool dip in the pool and water slide, I mean how great is that???

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Love the upside down building picture. Reminds me on one I've seen in Florida when we go to Orlando to visit Mickey Mouse. Maybe they have one there too.

Looks like you're all having a blast!

Wow! It looks like you had a blast!
Your pictures are just great! Can't wait to hear about dollywood! We are thinking about going to the smokies next year.

Hi Mich!

The funny thing here is that Pigeon Forge, Tennessee is just an hour from where I was a few weeks earlier in July! Ha! Ha!

These photos are great! Yes, that restaurant looks like a fun and good place to eat!

I am working my way UP your blog…I have been behind and am trying to catch up.

By the way, one of those upside down building was just down the street from where we stayed in a hotel one night. We could see it from the balcony.

Hi again Mich!

Okay, I am just a bit wacky…we actually stayed just about a minutes drive down the road from this Wonderworks at:
Days Inn Apple Valley
1841 Parkway
Sevierville, TN 37862

I did not know it was so close to Pigeon Forge!
