Day Four: Something Fishy

Pete and Phil in the tunnel of fish!
This was our rainy day of the week so we took advantage of it and went and did our shopping in the morning and the aquarium in the afternoon after naps.  Stride Rite has an outlet and with Pete's wide feet I take advantage of it and buy them up.  In Gatlinburg there is the Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, it costs a pretty penny but it is well worth it.  Pete loved it!  He saw lots of fish loved riding through the tunnel that takes you through the sharks and big fish schools, petting a horseshoe crab and a manna ray.  Really we could have spent lots more time than we did but it was getting to be dinner and bed time for the kiddos so we had to head out, which he wasn't happy about!  They also had a temporary exhibit of dinosaurs with big moving ones, and sand to dig in to find bones.  It was a great use of a rainy day!
