Gatlinburg: Day 1

Once we arrived in Gatlinburg Friday we went to eat at Lineburgers Seafood. Ronnie, Craig's boss, recommended it and it was fantastic. After that we headed over to Wacky Bear. We have made "friends" at Build-a-Bear before, but we liked Wacky Bear better. Mikayla and "Bree Bree" the duck - named after her best friend Breanna no doubt.
Drew and "Zach" the moose
From there we checked into our hotel, unpacked and then walked "the strip". When we got to Ripley's Haunted Adventure, Drew decides he wants to go in. After talking the to attendant and some people coming out to let Drew hear how intense it is, he still was determined to go. So, Craig bought tickets for he and Drew. I (still a little worried about this) stayed with Mikayla who had no desire to go in. She was scared enough by the workers hanging around outside. I remind Drew that it is all pretend and if he gets too scared he can come out. With a kiss they are off. I wait with camera ready to get a picture as they board the "caged elevator". It was a relief to see Craig and Drew come back out only minutes after going back. Drew changed his mind and decided he didn't want to ride after all. Craig said everybody back there was begging him to ride - I, for one, am glad he didn't. I think it would be better for him to wait until he's older! After more walking we decided to play miniature golf at Circus Golf. This was an indoor, black light putt putt course also in 3D. We had lots of fun.
Mikayla had fun putting, whileDrew rode a rhino in a cage.Craig finds a new "sweetie", and we became the strongest family in America all in the same night! :)
