Sweet 16

Hi guys! Today is my birthday!!! I'm officially 16! We went on a trip a few days ago to celebrate my birthday. We went to Tennessee. It was a looonnnggg drive, but it was totally worth it! 

We went to a bear zoo! The bears were adorable. They would clap for food. I got a video of one of them clapping, but once I saw a sign saying that you couldn't videotape them, I felt so guilty that I deleted it. I tried to capture one bear clapping so I hope you enjoy it all the same. :)
We had some great food there! Yum!!!

The view was beautiful! Especially since we went in the autumn time.

A picture of my beautiful sister. :)

We also went on a Ghost Walk. It wasn't scary or anything. This guy would tell us stories about things that happened in that town. He showed us a couple different places that were supposedly haunted. I liked learning about the history of their town. Before going there, we stopped by a graveyard with tons of old graves. Some were from the 1700's! You might be thinking that it's weird to look at graveyards but I find it has a deep, solemn beauty. As I read their graves, I was curious what their story was.

This pic is really blurry, but I couldn't help but put this on as well. Oh Dobby!

I hope you enjoyed this post that I sorta threw together at the last minute. ;) Thanks for reading!<3

    My dad use to work at a huge rural garden cemetery in Baltimore and he would take us there some days. It's weird, but we loved it and want to go back some time:) John Wilkes Booth is buried there, but his grave is unmarked.
