Well, the trip was a success and our itinerary was PERFECT! And we were home a little earlier than expect (which was nice because the kids CRASHED on the way home)!
We started out seeing the Under the Sea 3D IMAX before lunch. It was so cute! I wish I could have videoed the kids watching the movie. They would jump around and reach out and try to touch the fish. At one point, I got so nauseous, I had to take my glasses off and look at something that was not moving! It was so real!
Then we walked across the Tennessee River to a great lunch spot! The kids enjoyed running up and down the longest pedestrian bridge! I was mad because I didn't have my camera! :-(
Then we hit up the Children's Museum!
The bubble machine!
Playing in the instrument section!
I have to say it was a lot like the McWane Center. It was better quality stuff, but the museum was overall a little smaller. AND because of the rain, we had to miss out on a few things...like the rooftop fun center. Oh well, we'll just have to go back!
So yeah, I took some pics in the mirrors. I don't know why I find this so fun. Partly because it's rare I hand over my camera (I don't shoot in the automatic modes and the effort to explain to a stranger how to work the manual modes just isn't worth it) and also, I think they make some cool shots sometimes. Plus, it means I make it into some pics! :-)
After the museum, we got some coffee and checked into the hotel. We settled down and cleaned up for dinner! We love hibachi grills and so do the kids. Our tummies were so full, we didn't even have room for dessert! (And that doesn't happen too often!)
So we headed back to the hotel to......
jump on the beds and swim in the pool, of course!!!! YAY! It's ALL they talked about all day!
I told them this is the only time it's okay to jump on beds...how fun am I! :-)
The pool was nice! By this point, I was fading fast. Though, I thought I made it very well for walking as much as we did (a TON) and being pregnant with no down time!
Of course, they found the jacuzzi much more fun!
Landon played it safe!
Olivia went back and forth from jacuzzi to pool!
Ok, so I made the pics so big, it's making the posts so long! I'll post the other half hopefully this afternoon! :-)
