Our Little Vacation

During the last week of Hollace's two week Spring Break, we took a little trip over to East TN to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. This is a very popular tourist location (for those of you in OK). Pigeon Forge is the home of Dolly Parton's amusement park, Dollywood.

These pictures are out of order, which drives me crazy, but it wouldn't let me move them like usual.
Here are the kids at Dollywood.
This was one of their favorite rides. We rode it several times. The park was not busy AT all. We just walked right up to all the rides and got on.

This was after a little water battle ride. We got SOAKED!! Poor Thad cried to whole time.
This was the cabin where we stayed. It was very nice and secluded, yet very close to everything. It had a hot tub on the deck which the kids loved!

This picture is for my Dad. It is inside the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, which we drove through on our way home. This picture does not do it justice. It was just beautiful.

These next few are at a Cars museum that Brent and the boys went to in Gatlinburg, while Hollace and I shopped a little.

This is the car from "The Adams family" wait...or "the Munsters"? Which is it?
The car from "Days of Thunder"
From "Back to the Future". I loved that movie.

and of course Herbie

This was actually at Dollywood, and Rhett wanted to take a picture with this car because it looked like Sheriff from "CARS".

Here is Hollace on one of the mild rides. She much preferred the fast, up-side down roller-coasters and rode all of them at least once.

Rhett was not quite tall enough for a lot of the rides. Next summer he'll be able to do a lot more.
