Aquarium of the Smokies (Gatlinburg, TN)

We spent an amazing afternoon at the Aquarium of the Smokies.  It was really fabulous. There were all different kinds of displays from the Tropical Rain Forest, penguin display, sting ray bay, underwater sea life, whale skeletons, a coral reef, and much more. I’ll try not to overwhelm you with pictures–just putting together a few collages, but it was such a great day it’s been hard whittling down the pictures!!

The kids were wowed by the Shark Lagoon. It is an underwater display that has the sharks swimming next to and over you! It’s really great.

The kids loved the hands-on display areas. They were able to touch horse shoe crabs and sting rays.

And here are a few more of our favorite pictures. LD wanted me to include the poster of the shark who ate a wrist watch, 2 bathing suits, a 50 lb anchor, 1 mule’s hind leg, 10 lbs of bolts, 1 vanity case and much more!

    Great blog. I didn’t specifically see one on exercising with children, but if you’re interested, I have an article about exercising with children that you might find beneficial.
