Rock City and Fairytale Nights

Today we drove up to Chattanooga to visit Rock City. We go there a lot, but we always love it, and today was certainly no exception.

This area is used on the weekend for formal pictures with the Easter Bunny, but today it was open to anyone:

This year they're doing a new evening Spring Break event called Fairytale Nights, which we went back for. (Fortunately, our annual pass got us in to it for free.) It was kind of like a fairy tale-themed renaissance festival, with characters in costume greeting you and trying to engage you in conversation throughout the trails. Here Snow White talks to a little girl who isn't Jessica or Elyse:

And here she talks to Jessica and Elyse (and Mommy too):

Elyse got her face painted:

(This was taken at the hotel, with Elyse in her nightie.)

We enjoyed the afternoon at Rock City; the Fairytale Nights evening was fun, but it gave Jessica a lot of anxiety knowing there were characters around every turn who were going to talk to her, and extra anxiety knowing there might be monsters lurking about. (We never did see the Giant that Jack warned us about. Thank goodness!) I'm glad we did it, but especially glad we didn't have to pay to get in.
