This weekend we went to Ripley's Aquarium in Gatlinburg as an extended birthday weekend event. We had never been before and we weren't disappointed. We had a blast touching sting rays, horseshoe crabs and going through the shark lagoon. We all enjoyed the variety of sea creatures they had were amazed at the number and size of tanks in the aquarium.

You may wonder how we can afford to take our family there. Well, if you homeschool you can get the homeschool discount. Just bring in your homeschool ID and that's it. We would have not been able to go except for this discount. All the more reason why it's good to homeschool. It was a fun weekend event as well as a field trip :)

Hope you had a fun filled weekend. The weather was great and it was great to get out and enjoy the day.

  1. I've been so remiss visiting here! So much to catch up on. The photos of the aquarium are wonderful and it looks like you all had a great family time. I'm busy getting the house ready for Mom to move in which is going to take a lot of adapting for her and for me. I'll be ready for our vacation in August! Take care. Love you
