Trade Days

Grandma and Grandpa took us to the last trade days of the year at Tannehill. We all had a great time but Im pretty sure Madelyn had the most fun. She was just a little spoiled by Grandma and Grandpa. Madelyn got her face painted like a tiger, the lady who did it did a great job.

 Grandpa talked her into doing the flying bungee jump, which she loved.

fearless-  flying so high
 Grandpa also bought her two trucks which she has loved playing with and a water balloon yo yo that she is so proud of. We can't wait until next year for trade days.

Disney on Ice

We took Madelyn to see Disney on Ice again this year and she loved it. We had great seats and Madelyn danced, clapped and waved the whole time.

Big Sister Class

Madelyn took a big sister class at the hospital a few Saturdays ago and she was so excited. It was such a cute little class. The teacher asked the children what was different about mommy now that she was having a baby and several kids answered and then Madelyn starting talking and I starting holding my breath, I was so scared of what she was going to say but luckily she just said you have to be careful with mommy and not be rough. The children learn some rules for having a new baby in the house, practiced holding babies (with baby dolls) and got a tour of the hospital.
So excited to be holding her baby

Gatlinburg Trip

We took a family trip to Gatlinburg and had so much fun. We stayed at the Wyndham wilderness resort that had two water parks. On Friday we took the girls to the waterpark and they loved it. Madelyn loved going in the wave pool with daddy and pretending like she was on Bucky (a boat). Mymy, Pop and Uncle B arrived late Friday and then Saturday morning we went to the water  park again.

Saturday night we went to Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede. Madelyn loved seeing all the animals and kept screaming yee haw!

After the show we took Madelyn to the outside stables where they keep all the horses and she was in heaven. 
Sunday we went to the Ripley's aquarium. 
In the tunnel, not so sure about that shark being so close

 After the aquarium we took the Tram up to Ober Gatlinburg.
We ate lunch looking over Gatlinburg, rode the carousel and walked through the wildlife encounter to see baby bears.
Monday we headed back home but before we could leave we had to play in the huge arcade at the resort.
