New World Record: Most Apple Fritters Eaten

We have had a wonderful week sharing with family. On Tuesday morning, we headed out towards Gatlinburg. Our first night we went to the Dixie Stampede in Pigeon Forge. What a great show! We saw horses, longhorn cattle, ostriches and pigs as well as enjoyed music and great food. Definitely worth the money! An extra special surprise for us was that we ran into more family!

On Wednesday we enjoyed time at the WonderWorks museum (an interactive science museum) and had a load full of apple fritters at the Apple Barn. Also, Santa was there eating lunch, and he came over and gave the girls bracelets.

Today, we visited the Guiness World Records Museum in downtown Gatlinburg. It was a great place since the girls and I had just read an Ivy+Bean book about world records. We saw some strange stuff and were able to learn about accomplishments and feats completed around the world!

Tonight we are heading to the Midnight Parade, and the girls are SO excited that they will be able to stay up so late!
