U.S. Marshal!

D.J. posing with some of his birthday gifts. The guns are from Daddy and Mommy, the badge is from Brandon, and the glasses are from Dan and Gina. He really enjoyed showing them off!

Friday

On Friday, we went souvenir shopping. These are the results - a hat for each of the boys and a sweatshirt for everyone!











After we were finished shopping, we let the boys go on a couple of rides.

Hey, even big boys need to play!

We were told that Gatlinburg was the minature golf capital, so after rides we went minature golfing. This was D.J.'s first time and he thoroughly enjoyed himself!

There were some ducks walking around there, so after we were done with minature golf, we fed the ducks.

Thursday

On Thursday, we went to the National Park.



First we stoped at the Gatlinburg Welcome Center and got a map of the National Park so that we could figure out where we were going.


Then we got into the van to drive through the park.

As we were driving through the park, we kept stopping every little bit to take pictures.
Then we stopped for a picnic lunch.


After lunch, we got back in the van, drove some more, then stopped at a spot where there was a "museum" you could go through. It was set up like a typical mountain farm would have been years ago.

There were many buildings and farm equipment to look in and at.
After looking at the farm, we got back into the car and drove some more. We went through the Cherokee Indian Reservation.
Then we got out and walked on one of the trails.
As we walked, the trail kept taking us higher and higher. When we looked down, we were pretty high up!

Finally we got to our destination - a waterfall!

On the way back to our cabin, we saw some elk in the national park, so we had to stop and take some pictures.
