Our first destination in between the rain and hail was to the Ripley's Aquarium in Gatlinburg. This was a very kid friendly, hands on aquarium and we really enjoyed spending the morning here out of the rain.
|One of my favorites!|
Our next stop was lunch. We ate at a delicious gourmet pizza restaurant called Mellow Mushroom. If you have never been to Mellow Mushroom, you are missing out! We tried the Philospher's Pizza and Loaded Baked Potato Pizza! Yummy.
After filling our bellies, we traveled down to an amazing museum called Wonderworks. We could have spent the whole day here. The kids (and adults) were entertained the entire time.
|You can do it dad!|

Their favorite exhibit was the glow in the dark ropes course. It was three stories high and they conquered their fears by going all the way to the top! They loved it so much they did it twice!
Dare to use this restroom...
I tried...It worked!!
The rain moved out of the area by the afternoon so we stopped to ride go-carts on our way back to the cabin.
Who says that rain can ruin a vacation?? We made the most of a rainy day and more importantly we made some great memories!!
|Claire's first time to drive a go-cart by herself. I must say she was a safer driver than her dad.|
