Smokey Mountain Wilderness Fun

We had such a wonderful time this past weekend with Matt's family while at the Smokey Mountain Wilderness in Sevierville. Both the kids and the adults had a blast playing in the water park. There was enough to do to keep all the kids busy. It was also small enough that the older kids could wander about on their own and we could hang out with the smaller ones and not worry. Taylor was big enough to do all the slides so she enjoyed hanging out with her cousins.

The bucket that dumped water every few minutes....Madison hated this!

Matt and Caleb "racing" Taylor and Riley

The hot tub was Kelsey and Caleb's favorite place to be!

Nona and Caleb having a blast in the wave pool!

They had a ride called Surf Rider where you could body surf or surf while standing up. All the kids (well all but Madison and Shelby since they were big enough) gave it a try. They all did well too. Gabby and I gave it a try but there is no evidence. I wasn't very good at it.




Caleb....love the look of excitement on his face!

Kelsey was so excited too!

Taylor loved doing this and was really good at it too!

Don (Matt's brother) gave the surfing a try

He wiped out though

But got back up!

Corey gave it a try too

but also wiped out!

We also did quite a bit of playing on the Wii. Some nights the adults didn't go to bed until 3 am b/c of Wii tournaments!

Is this that hotel on the road to Dollywood? We saw that when we were there in June and said we would definitely stay there if we came back. Looks Fun!

How fun! I am so jealous! And a little sad that you didn't have anyone photograph you and Gabs surfing! Oh well, at least you captured Don wiping out! Ha! Loved that one!
