A Day at the Fair .... Sort of......
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. :)
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
Views of the park from the observation deck.
Oh, look!! It's a picture of Deanna!! Hee hee hee hee! ;)
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
There's another aspect to the park that I will be talking about tomorrow. I think it warrants its own post.
We are SUPPOSED to hear something about the house today! Wish us luck!!!
