Dollywood

On our family trip to Pigeon Forge, we got to visit Dollywood on Friday afternoon and all day Saturday!  We had a blast and I know we will be going back in the future...the kids and my Big Kid of a Hubby all had so much fun!



 We definitely had a stroller brigade.
 Dollywood had a wide range of rides and entertainment for everyone age!  There was a fun kids area with obstacles that Zoe, Kendall and Carson just loved!


 And there are a couple water rides...we all had fun on this one!



 And there was an entire kids section!  It was so nice to have something that Zoe could ride...and they all had such a great time!  I was nervous about Zoe on the little roller coaster....but she had a ball!
 Once she got off, she was ready for the next ride!


 We had really good intentions with this ride...Zoe had a different thought.  The minute she went up the first time...her smile went down!


 But by the end of it...she was ready to ride it again!


Evan got to ride a ride too...the joy this kid exudes just melts my heart.  He smiled the whole time!

 Last but not least, we rose around on the Carousel.




After the kiddy rides, the big kids got to have some fun!  I rode a roller coaster for the first time since my 18th birthday.  I am not too keen on heights this day....but I survived to tell about it....and had a lot of fun!  My stomach was a different story!
The long weekend went way to fast...as they always do!  It was so wonderful to getaway with some of our favorite people!  Can't wait to have another family vacation!
 What made leaving a little bit easier was we got to ride home through the Great Smokey Mountains...and it was just stunning!  


It is so nice getting away, leaving the day to day routine of life...even if for just a couple days.  So good for the mind and soul!  Can't wait to do it again!
