Visit to the fire station and girls weekend '09

We got back from our girls weekend ( well girls weekend plus Aidan) last Thursday. My camera cord was temporarily misplaced so it took me awhile to upload pics. We had an awesome time with my mom, 2 aunts, and cousin. We always enjoy our time in Gatlinburg. We went to the Dixie Stampede for their Christmas Dinner show, did some shopping, played minature golf ( aidan calls it popcorn golf for some reason) visited the aquarium and ate lots of yummy food! We got the same "cabin" that we did last year. It is right by the creek. The screened in porch is actually right over the creek. We got a ton of rain the last 2 days we were there and it didnt take long for the lovely "stream" to become almost a river with lots of white water. Unfortunately, I didnt even think about taking any pictures of it. Had it continued another day I think the cabin may have washed away.

When we went to the Dixie Stampede they take your picture before you go in. They then attempt to sell you the pictures ( which we usually end up purchasing). When they brought us our pictures they asked if they could use the picture of Aidan for marketing purposes. It was a really cute picture. I signed a "modeling contract" and release and told them "sure". I would love to see how they are going to use the picture.

Before we went on our girls trip Aidan and I had our first experience with the "mom and tots" program here. We went on a trip to the fire station. So fun! Aidan loved it! His favorite part was getting to sit in the fire truck and "drive" it. He actually had a little tantrum when he had to get out because he thought he was such a "big boy". The fireman talked to us, educated us, and were really great with the little ones. The firemans hat was incredibly heavy!

so many shiny objects to touch at the fire station! LOL!

playing "popcorn golf". Me showing Aidan how to hit the ball.

How he actually ended up playing golf. Walking up to the hole and dropping it in. LOL!

He was so funny. About the 9th hole he just sat down and decided to take a rest. Popcorn golf is exhausting!

This is where we took pics last year. It was really hard getting a picture of Aidan because he was more interested in going walking in the "forrest"- woods.

I love this bridge!

The only shot I got of the three of us.

My mom and her sisters. If you look closely between my 2 aunts you will see a red and white flash. Thats Aidan and what he did during the majority of the pictures. He ran away and wanted to go explore!

Gigi and her boy!
