Wednesday was out "touristy" day. We took the aerotram up to Ober Gatlinburg and did the super-mondo slide, the water slides (3), and the kiddie park.

Here we are on the tram ride up the side of the Smokey Mountains, just see the terror in Jael's eyes and the whites of Madyson's knuckles as she holds on that bar for dear life:

Here are some fun shots I'll explain as we go along:
We decided to go the "wristband route", however, since Jael was admitted for free she didn't need one. So the nice attendant lady gave her a complimentary wristband.

This is the end of the ride. Unfortunately no cameras are actually allowed on the ride, so this is the best shot I could get of the ride.

The big mondo waterslide is next. There are times when a little, fast moving line comes in handy; this is one of those times. That is one steep and high staircase.

Then comes the overpriced, but had-to-do-it icy-cream...YUM!!!

The tram ride down was almost as fun as the rides there, at least that's what Cece, Sarah and J thought on their fourth trip (we had gone down the mountain for lunch so we had to go back up the mountain for more fun before finally leaving the mountain for the day):

The perfect end to a perfect day...now you know why we needed to take Thursday off and do a relaxing day. But, most of you haven't read Thursdays report yet, so I just gave away the next blog you will read. Oh well...

Hope you enjoyed our trip though these pictures!!

I'm quitting for today and will do Monday and Tuesday tomorrow.

Hope you tune in!!

We did a Gatlinburg vacation with another family when the kids were little and we went to Ober Gatlinburg. I rode that chair lift for the sled ride and I was TERRIFIED! We have video of it and you can hear Fred from below making fun of me... ah! memories!

The pictures are great! I'm glad you guys had such a great time. I agree with Valerie though- I can't believe how old all of the girls are looking!!!
