Mammoth Adventures part 1

279...That is how many pictures I am downloading from our four day weekend vacation we took. We piled in the car early Friday morning (much earliers than I would have left, thanks to my early risers) :) We arrived in Cave City, Kentucky by lunchtime. If you have never been to Mammoth Cave National Park and the surrounding area, I highly recommend the trip.
.
We spent the majority of Saturday at Kentucky Action Park. The girls both made it to the top of the climbing wall. The arms on these girls amaze me. They are some strong chicas.
.

.
We hit the bumper cars a few times. (No pun intended of course!)
.

.
The trampoline was a huge hit even though that black surface was insane on bare feet. Love this picture of K. She was such a clown on that thing.


.
Yes, I even gave it a try. It is NOT as easy as it looks although I did manage to get one somersault in!

.
Our favorite part of the park was the Alpine Slide. You ride these lifts to the top of a hill....
.

.
and then ride sleds down a quarter mile concrete slide. The sleds allow you to accelerate or slow down whenever you want. We had such a great time on the slides we made this trip too many times to count.
.

.
I have a project to share with you as well today. I created this layout last week before we left for vacation. The girls came out of their bedrooms wearing these t-shirts a couple of weeks ago and it hit me how much their shirts took me back to my childhood. I knew I had to create a layout about it.
.

.
The rainbow is simply three pieces of cardstock that I inked and pieced together. I then added white hand drawn stitches and Gradient Gem Stickers from Creative Charms for extra detail. Those awesome orange retro looking flowers are also from Creative Charms. You can find them them in this month's Deal of the Month. I simply replaced the center with green gem stickers that are also part of the kit. That awesome butterfly is one of the new releases from Magistical Memories. I simply covered him with orange embossing powder and then embellished him with more gem stickers. The frame for the smaller photo is also from Magistical Memories.
.
I will be back in a day or two to share more from our trip. Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

Wow, what an amazing place you all got to visit! I can tell you all really enjoyed it. Love that photo of you on the trampoline. Don't think I would have had the courage to try that.
And what an adorable layout. Those tee shirts are retro for sure. Love your pieced rainbow and the fun flowers and butterfly. The gem stickers are a perfect touch.

Gotta love those gradient gem stickers. I seriously think I use them on every layout and card I do! That looks like a really fun place. We have a slide like that here at Seven Springs resort. My son would really like the climbing wall!
