Local tourist

We pretended to be tourists this week and went to Dollywood and Ripley's Aquarium in Gatlinburg. County residents got into Dollywood for only $5 and the aquarium was free with a can of food. Since we are new here, I still feel like a tourist. Dollywood was fun with a great Polar Express 4-D experience. The aquarium was nice with one of those glass tunnels with the sharks and fish swimming above and around you. I hope this will be an annual trip.

"Trick-or-treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat. If you don't, I don't care, I'll pull down your underwear." This is what Costa wanted to say, but thankfully he just said "Trick-or-treat." It was raining, pouring at times. We had an umbrella, so it ended up being fine. The kids had about 80 pieces of candy each. Taeo would get to a house and just say, "Candy, candy, ..." It worked, he got candy.
