Since the kids are out of school this week, we decided to take a mini vacation to the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. We left Sunday afternoon, came back on Tuesday, and headed straight to the softball field for a double header. Had another double header last night, and a game planned for this evening if the rain holds off. I'm starting to wonder if you can die from sleepiness!
I haven't had a chance to make any new jewelry, but I did get to visit a small bead store in Gatlinburg. I only bought a few things, and haven't managed to photograph them yet, but I do have a few other pictures from the aquarium we visited while on our trip.
A cute little seahorse...
A sea dragon...I think these are so interesting.
A big jellyfish...I love to look at these as long as they're safely contained in a tank.
And, finally, my girls with a penguin statue. Katie is on the right, and probably would have taken this little guy home if we could have moved him.
We also made a stop at Bass Pro Shop, where they have some nice tackle boxes that would be great for bead storage. Wish now I had picked one up!
