A couple of months ago we bought an unassembled, fully wooden doll house kit at a yard sale. There must have been 1000 pieces! After several days, 40 some hours, lots of glue, paint and wallpaper, we completed the house. You can see the front of the house in Kealoha's last entry here.
And here's a picture of the PC glass-eyed mini-girls in their new house:
As you can see we don't have much furniture yet. And really the girls are a bit off scale to the 1"=1' doll house. We made them their own bunk beds because they wouldn't be able to lie down in a scale, store-bought bed. We bought the fire place, sofa and ottoman at an antique store in Indiana. The house is still a work in progress, but we (and they) love it.

Okay, so now it's time for me to head to my next host's home. I've had lots of fun in Tennessee. Here are a few more pictures of some of the things I did here.
I got to visit the Sunsphere. It's a 266-ft tall structure that was built for the 1982 World's Fair that was held in Knoxville, One of the exhibits at that World's Fair was the introduction of the Rubik's Cube at the Hungarian Pavilion. I got to see it as it's still on display at the World's Fair Park. It's six-foot square!
I even got to buy a small, my sized Rubik's Cube to take home with me.
Oh, and I got to play with the mini-girls' house too.
but I'm very excited to be continuing my travels.

Yesterday was middle-brother's birthday and I got to go with AGR's family to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee where they stayed at this hotel with it's own waterpark! It was lots of fun!
Then we went to NASCAR Speedpark where you get to race go-karts and do lots of other thrill rides all day long.
Here is me with a real NASCAR.
You don't get to drive this kind at the Speedpark though.
The boys drove this kind of 'car' all day long.
We stayed 9 hours! I was very tired when we got home, but I had lots of fun!
