Week of Emma Comes 2 An End, Gatlinburg

We had an awesome week with Emma. Hope you've enjoyed coming along on our adventures.

My final day with Emma included a stop at her favorite Gatlinburg place: The Arcade. Remember yesterday, I left off with me & Carleen dancing merrily on the Dance Revolution game. When the game ended, we had to go find Emma & her crew.
This is where we found them:-
Teaching Emma to play Skee Ball.
-
Somewhere during the day, Emma figured out if she had "tickets," she could exchange them for a prize or two. So now, Emma was all about tickets. Jenn knew exactly what game gives you the most tickets, the biggest bang for your buck - Skee Ball.
-
-
With Aunt Lisa's instruction, backed by 40+ years of experience, Emma knew she could master this game.
-
-
She was a mite aggressive at first. Balls were flying. Aunt Lisa had to coax her into rolling the balls, not heaving them.

But sadly, Emma still didn't have many tickets. She just couldn't get the balls up in the high score slots with her little, bity self. Three lousy tickets won't even get a girl a tootsie roll, let alone a sparkly ring. Every girl needs a sparkly ring.

So we brought in the Big Guns.
The High Rollers.
The Power Playas.

Time to Bump a Buck, Baby.
The tickets came pouring out.
Jackpot!
Emma got her rack and started raking it in.

Emma then counteracted the House Edge with a smooth move of her own:

-
-
She cashed her chips, errr, I mean turned in her tickets & took 4Evah choosing her loot.

It was finally time to go, but geez, where's dad?
-
-
-

-
We finally found him in the corner having an interesting conversation with Ole Mac. He was trying to free Ole Mac, we had to pull him away.

We left Gatlinburg and made the long journey home. On the way, we stopped at Cracka Barrel for dad's birthday luncheon. To his dismay, Emma generously helped him with his birthday dessert.

Ooooo.
I love me some Emma.
