Busy Summer!!!

WOW! Have we been BUSY!!!! We’ve had more company and we’ve been checking out our new city more. We’ve gone to 2 block parties and back to one of our favorite places!

We also went back to the World’s Fair Park. The kids love it there. We took Jacob up in the Sunsphere. He thought it was cool. 😉 Then we hit the fountains. Last week was a broiler so they really needed a place to cool off. 😉



Another reason that I have been so quiet is that we are done to one computer! YILES!!! HEEEEEEEEEEELP!!! Our desktop is acting crazy and has been going out on us, this time it’s been 6 days!!!! We think we have a loose connection and have been trying to find someone to look at it for us.




A Day at the Fair …. Sort of……

World's Fair Park 020



In our quest to do all things free in Knoxville while trying to keep the cabin fever at bay, we went to the World’s Fair Park yesterday. We started out TRYING to go to the McClung museum on the UT campus…. Yeah, THAT was an experience! We couldn’t find parking ANYWHERE!! Well, there was that one parking lot about 5 blocks from the museum but there was no way I was going to get the kids to hike 5 blocks and then walk through the whole museum…. LOL Soooo, we decided to hit the World’s Fair Park. 🙂


World's Fair Park 006



We went up to the observation deck in the Sunsphere. Some of us thought that was really cool and others (Joshua and Deanna) were freaked out by being that high in the air…. Now, these are the kids that rode every roller coaster Kings Dominion has to offer, but are afraid of the Sunsphere….. I don’t get it. LOL

The park also has a nice playground that the kids enjoyed. Even Deanna. 😉

As the day wore on it got quite warm! The only thing to do was to hit the fountains! LOL


But remember!

World's Fair Park 008





There’s another aspect to the park that I will be talking about tomorrow. I think it warrant its own post.



We are SUPPOSED to hear something about the house today! Wish us luck!!!
