Sleeping with the Sharks

I know it seems like we have just been on the road all through spring. But, I swear, we have been home too! It just all seemed to fall over a two month span. This is a picture of Brooke and her classmates. She is the cutie in the front (white tshirt and denim shorts.) We got the opportunity to go to the Ripley's Aquarium in Gatlinburg, TN and sleep in the shark tunnel. I don't know why they call it "Sleep With the Sharks", because you don't sleep. You just lay there all night long and watch the fish swim overhead. What a serene sight. They are amazing creatures, indeed.

We had the entire aquarium to ourselves! We got to play games, have a scavenger hunt, eat pizza, and pet the stingrays!

This ball is in front of Ripleys Believe It or Not! It is being held up by a very small amount of water---believe it......or not!

They did this really neat craft where you make an imprint of a fish. They gave a great history lesson about the technique of fish printing. She made a pillowcase with her fish print. She is giving it a little kiss.
We toured downtown Gatlinburg before settling down for a night with the sharks. We had dinner at Bubba Gump's. Brooke is trying out Bubba's shoes. We didn't get much sleep, but we had so much fun. I highly recommend this field trip for anyone of any age!
We have dance recital, 8th grade prom, and another field trip to Dollywood all within the next two weeks. Wow....I need summer break to get here so we can take a much needed rest! The Adams family wishes everyone a warm and wonderful summer!!
