Visit with the Zaklans – part 1

There’s just nothing like visitors – especially when they are family. We had a blast with my sister and her family last week. They came and stayed a couple of days with us here in Alabama and then we all headed up together to Gatlinburg, TN area for the weekend. We just kind of relaxed and laid low while in Alabama – they had travelled a long distance and we felt that they needed some down time. We had fun playing ping-pong, wii, and the kids just had a blast period.

One day, we did venture out to the Bass Pro shop near us. We had never been, so we enjoyed our first visit there. The kids enjoyed the aquarium, many stuffed animals (the taxidermy kind) and the little class and small scavenger hunt that they participated in.


We also got to meet Clay Dyer (you’ve got to watch the video below – amazing story) and he was gracious enough to let us snap a picture with the kids. Funny thing – I had just been telling Teresa about his video a few hours earlier.

On our way to Gatlinburg (well, Pigeon Forge to be exact – that was where our cabin was located), we stopped at Noccalula falls.

Great times, great family, great friends! They are now on their return trip to Idaho – praying for safety for them and continued fun through the miles :)
