Vacation 2009

Well, we had a fabulous two week vacation this year in Pigeon Forge Tennessee! I'll let the pictures do the talking, but something I have to mention that the pictures won't tell you, is that we had THREE tire blow outs on the camper! Turns out they were the same tires that have been causing a bunch of car wrecks around the country. God was so good to protect us! We had a great time of R&R as well as a chance to focus on nothing but family time!
Here are only a few of the 1,100 pictures that Em and I got!
God be with you!
Anna, for us all

She was so cute shopping!

These two pix are right behind our campsite.

I thought those colors were striking together.

This place was so amazing! We were able to see all kinds of things! We saw so many historical artifacts including, my fav, some of Alvin York's things!

It was a lovely day

I am sure we all know what this is! ;P

We were able to get face to face with the sharks! ( was through glass!:)

The eels were very cool but they were also quite eerie!

Naomi loved this octopus!

Well, they didn't fit but you get the idea! :P

Apparently it is not very common to see the sea turtle, so we were fortunate to see allot of him!

We got to see two dive shows! They were so neat!
