Our Amazing Trip To the Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker

Our Amazing Trip To the Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker We had the amazing opportunity to attend the Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker last weekend.  I have never been to a ballet, much less the Moscow Ballet and wasn’t real sure what to expect.  My son was at a sleepover and my husband was at work, so we were able to grab one of my daughter’s friends and make it a girls’ night out.  None of us are really the “artsy” type and I was a little afraid that this

Titanic Pigeon Forge

I was given the amazing opportunity to visit the Titanic Museum in Pigeon Forge on a recent vacation. I have wanted to see the Titaic Museum since the Titanic exhibit tour hit the Pyramid in Memphis, TN in 1997. I can remember the rave reviews people gave it back then and couldn’t imagine how great it would be now. Well, I can tell you; we were not disappointed. All five of us thoroughly enjoyed the Titanic Museum. There was something for all of us. We were drawn in at first

Wilderness At The Smokies

We had the awesome opportunity to stay at the Wilderness at The Smokies on a recent trip we took to the Great Smoky Mountains. This place is AMAZING!  We LOVE water parks and this is the second indoor waterpark we have visited.  We were NOT disappointed!  There is an indoor and outdoor waterpark at the Wilderness at The Smokies.  During our stay there, the temperature outside was getting down in the 50’s at night, so we opted for the warmer, indoor waterpark.  There was something there for EVERYONE.  As most

Make a SPLASH at Gulf Islands Water Park!

At the risk of sounding completely stupid; I’m going to tell you that I had no idea Gulfport was so close to Lafayette, LA!  I have lived here for almost 6 years and really thought it was a 6-8 hour drive away.  Well, guess what?  Gulfport, Mississippi is only a 3 hour drive from Lafayette, Louisiana!  I can’t believe that it is that close and I never checked it out!  I was given an awesome opportunity to take my children to Gulf Islands Waterpark and jumped at the opportunity!  We
