Will’s 5 Year Old Trip: Gatlinburg

 

One of the things we would like to do with each of our children is take them on special trips by themselves when they are 5, 10 & 15 years old. The plan is when you are 5 you get to pick anywhere in the state, 10 anywhere in the country and 15 anywhere in the world. For Will’s 5 year old trip he picked Gatlinburg so he could try ice skating and snow tubing.

Will’s absolute favorite part of the whole trip was the awesome indoor swimming pool with 2 water slides at the hotel! He would have been perfectly content to do nothing else except swim the entire weekend.

Will won a bunch of tickets at the arcade and picked out paper airplanes (one for him and one for Thomas), a baseball fan and candy.

Before the trip, all Will talked about was trying to ice skate but then he decided that he didn’t want to try it, and then changed his mind again. He and Bill got out on the ice, made it one time around the rink and they were finished. Will yelled up at me, “Mommy, this is not fun at all!”

Finally, it was time to snow tube! Will (and Bill) enjoyed this the most. It was fun to watch them slide down the hill and worth the wait to see how much fun they had doing it!

We had such a good time and can’t wait to continue this tradition with the rest of the boys. We also have to learn what is in the United States and what isn’t since Will either wants to go to Mexico or China for his 10 year old trip :)

    I’m afraid I’m like Mimi! Haven’t looked at the site in a very long while. I may need a donut for my 81 day! I love all the activity of Will’s exciting time. Wonderful way to enrich 7 remember time! ♥
